EU are still saying they won’t budge.

So they're looking after their member state interests?  Good on them.  The ECJ ruled that we can revoke article 50 without permission from the other members so that's massive.

Nor should they, they have made it clear this is it. The deal is what it is. I don’t see what possible point delaying the vote will solve. 

May is now in a no win situation. She can delay and get nothing or push forward and lose.

To have longer to whip up the MPs to ensure they vote the way she wants.  But it stinks of desperation.  to put it in UKFF terms, it's like when Ian Beale was taking all the cash from the tills to raise the cash he needed before being declared bankrupt after Phil wouldn't help him.

Has there been a more sitting duck, useless PM reign in modern UK history? The whole 2 years of her reign have been utterly farcical. From triggering Article 50 quickly, to calling an election, losing her majority, being bullied by 50 of her MPs, paying 1 billion to bribe the DUP then having them go against her,  refusing to sack Boris Knobwanker from the cabinet after time and time again being a knobwanker, him then resigning to make her look stupid, her stupid dancing, windrush, trying to block all the legal advice on Brexit being shown to MPs, losing 3 votes in 45 minutes, striking a deal which pisses off people who voted leave and remain, saying this vote would go ahead and then delaying it...bloody hell. Its utterly ridiculous. Throw in her time as Home Secretary coming back every 5 minutes to bite her and you have to wonder if she even believes she's capable of doing this job.

No wonder they're lining up to stab her in the back. Boris has basically lumbered her with the 2 years graft to walk in and act like he's some sort of savior. He's even cut his stupid bloody hair in anticipation. Maybe he's writing some new racist quips over lunch with his mate Nigel in preparation for appealing to the Tommy Brigade

For me, from the very start this should have been a cross party negotiation. The fact nobody has taken control of any of this and been level headed is shameful.

She's also the first UK prime minister in history to lead a government that was found in contempt of parliament.

That was a complete farce. May delaying her own vote to get nonexistent concessions is farce. The Labour position within Corbyn's rebuttal was farce. John Bercow pontificating about 'decency and respect in a workplace setting' was ultra-farce.

Basically, the vote has to take place before January 21st before additional Parliamentary powers to influence the process kicks in (probably).  

Edit: I may be wrong on that now. It's disputed, but it could mean we can kick the can all the way until March. Yippee!

It seems like that's why she's being so careful to talk about "seeking assurances" rather than wanting to change either of the documents. One theory is that the moment she says we want to change the wording of the documents, the January 21 deadline comes back into force.

There's also the minor matter that whenever she has the "meaningful vote", she then has to get a full act of parliament through to write the deal into British law, so the longer she delays it, the less time for that.

Maybe we could appoint Guus Hiddink as interim Prime Minister to see us through the negotiation period? We probably won't win anything but we probably won't get relegated either.
