    Ratify this:

    Ratify, we're out (on agreed terms).
    Don't ratify: we're out (on WTO terms at the end of the negotiation period or through ratification via a GE).

    The movements in the pound today are minor in the scheme of things and are more related to the inflation beat than this (non) event.

    A Government Concession on Brexit Has Sent the Pound Surging (well about 1%)

    May's Lawyer Admits Parliament May Vote on Brexit Deal; Pound Surges

    A lawyer for Theresa May’s government said parliament will “very likely” have to ratify an eventual agreement between the U.K. and the European Union when the country leaves the bloc.

    The comments are significant because the majority of MPs are opposed to leaving the EU, and are upset at indications that the government will not even try to keep the U.K. in the EU’s Single Market as it tries to negotiate the ‘Brexit’ settlement.

    The U.K. sends over 40% of its exports to the EU, and the financial services sector, which accounts for over 10% of gross domestic product, is particularly dependent on unconstrained access to the Single Market. The pound has plunged in the last two weeks on fears that this access would be lost. If parliament were to reject the government’s draft settlement (and public opinion were to swing back behind Remaining), it is possible that the U.K. may stay in the EU after all.

    Wouldn't that be a form of cannibalism?
