THE Sun has seen eye to eye with Tory backbenchers all along over Brexit. But it is time they engaged with grim reality.
Many spend too long fantasising about where the project might now be, had it been negotiated as they wanted, instead of where it is.

If in a fortnight they again reject Theresa May’s deal, Parliament will vote against No Deal and to delay Brexit.
Brexiteers might think that simply means a potential No Deal exit on June 29 instead. But who really believes that?
MPs will prevent that too, maybe by backing the second referendum Labour now supports. A delay may well be fatal.
We are outraged at the Cabinet Remainers and no-mark ministers who held the PM to ransom to secure a vote over halting No Deal. A clearout of this sorry bunch cannot come too soon.

But it is plain that they are calling the shots now, not the ERG’s Brexiteers — despite the claims of Anna Soubry.
All Tory MPs must remember this: Their party can avoid complete destruction — and indeed can capitalise on Corbyn’s poll collapse — ONLY by delivering Brexit. Yes, even Mrs May’s version . . . with an improved backstop.
No Brexit leads to No Tories — and the collapse of our political system.

They’re not convinced by its own deputy leader admitting there’s no difference between its politicians and its military wing, which is already banned.
Nor by the catalogue of atrocities Hezbollah has carried out against civilians, including children, in Syria.
Nor by the fact it is dedicated to driving Jews from their homes.

Corbyn and his aide Seumas Milne won’t bend. They are two upper-class idiots who have spent all their pampered lives romanticising left-wing violence.
And yet Labour still wants voters to believe it is not racist — and that our nation’s defence is safe in its hands.
What a sick joke.

Late on hate
WE commend Facebook, for once, for finally pulling the plug on Tommy Robinson.
He may pose as a fearless truth-seeker exercising his right to free speech. In reality he is a criminal thug whose page stirred up violence against Muslims.
PA:Press Association Tommy Robinson has finally been banned from Facebook and Instagram
We’d have more time for Facebook, though, if they were equally decisive over removing Islamist extremism.
Or self-harm videos.
And we ask this of Google’s YouTube, where Robinson still has a presence:
