En läsare skickade mig ett klipp från ett läsarbrev i Financial Times om hur den brittiska Brexit-frågan kommer att hanteras:
In the New Year, Labour, sensing blood after a crushing commons defeat for Teresa May's plan, decide to go for a general election, but fail, because Tories and DUP rally round. So Labour table a motion for a second referendum, and with Labour on board there's a majority for that. The Commons then debates the questions on the ballot paper. They throw out the no-deal brexit, which a majority rightly think is disastrous. The brexiters can't persuade enough about a Norway plus option, or anything else they dream up, so those options are eliminated as well. Which leaves Remain or her deal as the alternatives. And either way Teresa May wins! Teresa May applies for an extension of article 50 until June in order to run a second referendum, which the EU grant, it's what they're after.
