If Theresa May's Brexit deal doesn't pass the third time, Britain will be entirely at Brussels' mercy



One last chance
BREXIT’S only prayer now, incredibly, is that Theresa May brings her battered deal back for a third final vote and that Tory backbenchers and the DUP support it.
Every other solution is a disaster, or a non-starter.
UK Parliament If Theresa May’s Brexit deal doesn’t pass the third time, Britain will be entirely at Brussels’ mercy
The PM’s deal is unpopular with both Parliament and the public. But wait until we are saddled with a supersoft non-Brexit instead. Voters aren’t stupid. They will know they have been mugged and take revenge at the ballot box
Remainer MPs are desperate to bury the PM’s deal forever. They know this is their moment.
Witness Chancellor Philip Hammond urging a new “consensus” — presumably with Corbyn, who after Wednesday night’s voting carnage appears to think he’s in charge.
He will champion a permanent customs union or “Norway Plus”. Either will smother our new independence at birth.
Do the Tory ERG group grasp now how bad this could get?
Attorney General Geoffrey Cox is ­busy trying to convince the DUP the union IS safe under Mrs May’s deal, a day after his own needlessly brutal legal advice helped shoot it dow
Today Remainer MPs will vote for Mrs May to beg the EU for extra time, postponing Brexit and almost completing our humiliation before the world.
And unless her deal can pass within days, we will be entirely at Brussels’ mercy.

You wasters
WHEN was the last time the Government brought in a major building project early and under budget?
Vast sums of our money are splurged with scandalous abandon. Estimates are tripled or quadrupled. Look at HS2. Or the spiralling bill for smart meters.
AFP The Chancellor’s review into infrastructure spending is long overdue
The National Audit Office boss reckons Ministers spend big with “unaccountable bravado”, fancying themselves “as chief executives, without the qualifications”.
It is time to hold them accountable. If they sign off on a project, only to see it become a gravy train for all involved, that politician should walk the plank.
The Chancellor’s review into infrastructure spending is long overdue.
We must cut this profligate waste.
Bloody outrage
THE double standards are appalling.
Seventeen old soldiers will discover today if they will be charged over the deadly chaos of Bloody Sunday in 1972.

Meanwhile an Irishman suspected of the cold-blooded murder of World War Two hero Airey Neave MP in 1979 runs a bar in Majorca, free as a bird. Much like 200-plus IRA men with a supposedly free pass from the Blair Government.
Successive Tory Defence Secretaries have talked a good game about protecting veterans from prosecution over incidents long in the past on active duty.
We are about to find out if it was just that . . . talk.
