If you planned to sail across an ocean on a certain date, but on that date your boat was not built, you would not attempt to make the trip anyway.
For the same reason, we cannot leave the EU with no deal and no plan. We cannot leave on the 29th March.https://t.co/vTX5C0nYK0

After the contempt May today showed for Parliament, it’s up to Parliament to treat that behaviour with equal contempt. Time for MPs this week to take power away from the PM on Brexit. Are they up to it?

Whether you thought we were headed for hard Brexit, no deal Brexit, soft Brexit or no Brexit, try to get your head around how outrageous it would have seemed two years ago that we wouldn't actually know which it was going to be with only weeks to go.

Spinning the barrel of the revolver in a game of Russian roulette with the lives of millions is not the sign of a PM or of someone who cares for her people. It is an act of grotesque party-political recklessness. Even proposing no deal would be more honourable by allowing debate. https://t.co/EtKO49dDOu

US Sec of State Mike Pompeo says North Korea still poses a nuclear threat, contradicting the words of his boss, President Donald Trump. So is Trump prepared to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and get NK to denuclearize without the US giving away too much upfront? pic.twitter.com/hTKMIRmlRR
