        Looks like its BRINO or 2nd ref. The no-deal option has been put to bed.
        The EU will bring out a "concession" they've agreed on in advance and the cretins will be allowed to save face.
        Fast forward a few years later and the UK will re-apply to join after 1.x% growth leaves it bottom of Europe
        Hard Brexit now!

          I am still hoping for a 2nd referendum resulting in a dead heat

              I've cynically suspected this for a while.

                Indeed it will be a meaningless cosmetic change to the text which will be announced as a "major concession".

                Second vote goes through with Boris and JRM protesting on the sidelines for street cred.

                  *cough* it's an opinion by an Advocate General, not the actual judgement. Although his opinion is important, it carries no legal weight and is not the final decision on the matter - that can only come from the judges presiding over the case.

                    The odd thing about this case, is that all it is doing is seeking a judicial opinion from the EU's highest court on whether or not the UK can unilaterally revoke A50. It's not seeking to revoke it (that is not within it's power) but only a judgement on whether it can be done or not.

                    The "defendant" in this case is HMG of the UK - our own bloody government are the ones that don't want to know whether or not it is legally possible to unilaterally revoke, and have spent a fortune in our tax pounds on their own QCs to try to prevent this going to a hearing to find out.
