The EU have signaled they would accept Canada Plus and the DUP and ERG would support it in the Commons. Yet May persists with a basterdised version of Chequers thart May prevent UK PLC signing trade deals for years.
The 'man in the street' is not politically astute, but you don't need a great understanding of politics to realise that giving the EU the ability to block the UK signing trade deals is a spectacularly stupid idea.
I think a lot of this is attributable to May's habit of running away from problems. Instead of going for Canada Plus and confronting the resulting difficulties, she's going for the easy way out, despite that buggering up UK PLC's future and liable to consign the Tories to two decades in opposition.
She's now going to run into a political $hitstorm at home and wonder what that happened.
