IF Tory backbench eurosceptics want to ensure Brexit happens they must get real.
The Irish backstop won’t be “binned”. The “Malthouse compromise” is too late.
The best they can hope for is a legally-binding tweak allowing us to leave the hated backstop and ensuring Britain and Northern Ireland are not divided.
Jeremy Corbyn’s cynical offer to Theresa May should focus Tory minds.
Rejecting her deal won’t bring about the No Deal many want. We believe a majority of MPs and half the Cabinet will blow up the Government and Brexit before they let that happen.
The result COULD be Mrs May agreeing to Corbyn’s idiotic demand for permanent Customs Union membership. But we can’t believe she’ll do that either.
It would rip the Tories in two, as Labour aides calculate, as well as being an insane surrender of our sovereignty and future economic independence and a betrayal of Leave voters. Small wonder Brussels was so keen on it yesterday.
All of which leaves what? A postponement on March 29, terrible damage to the Tories and a possible second referendum tearing the country apart.
Some have written off the “people’s vote” mob already. Not us.
So Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and the rest must think hard. Vote down whatever legal concession the PM secures and chaos may follow.
The Sun still reckons Leave would win a second referendum.
But why risk rolling the dice?
Let us thrive
BRITAIN’S economic forecasts may be poor — but they still beat Germany’s and Italy’s. And that is truly remarkable.
It is a testament to this country that any firm wants to invest here while we have no idea what our future will look like in just seven weeks.
Not to mention while millions still want a Marxist Labour Government committed to an economic model that has left Venezuelans scavenging from bins.
Imagine the tsunami of money and new jobs once a Brexit deal is done — and if the threat of Corbyn’s wrecking ball is lifted.

Rein them in
THE morally bankrupt tech giant Instagram finally promises to remove graphic images of self-harm.
So much for Nick Clegg, new PR man for the site’s owners Facebook, cravenly defending them just days ago.
It is shameful it took the threat of a ban or a new regulator. The damage done was surely obvious years ago. But Instagram only acted after the suicide of 14-year-old Molly Russell, a firestorm of criticism and Government intervention.
Chief Adam Mosseri admits: “We have not been as focused as we should have.” No kidding.
Regulation cannot come soon enough. They are out of control.
