LONDON – The gods heard Theresa May offer to float into the volcano to save Brexit and shrugged.
Naysayers still denies the British Prime Minister's exit plan. No one can say what it will take to close this deal – or what will happen to May, who promised to resign, sometime in the future if the deal was approved.
Britain was to leave the European Union on Friday. May promised that it would happen more than 100 times. That it will not represent one of the great stumbles of any government in post-war Britain.
Instead of Brexiteers celebrating the Independence Day, lawmakers will discuss May & # 39; s Brexit Agreement again.
But not her total plan – no, only the repurchase agreement of 585 pages. It is the part of the treaty that legally binding clarifies how much Britain will pay to leave the European Union ($ 50 billion) how the two-year transition will maintain the status quo of trade and travel (no change), and how Britain and the EU will treat each other's citizens in the meantime (no one is kicked out of any country's country).
The withdrawal agreement also contains the controversial "Irish backstop", an ironic guarantee of preserving the open invisible border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland – with balances that have been a stopover in the past.
Parliament will not vote Friday in the second part of the Treaty, the political statement describing the expectations of the future relationship of trade, security and borders.
The hope of Team May is that the repurchase agreement alone will win more than the overall agreement.
On a sign of how the Brexit maneuver does not tend to come much earlier, the idea was that the political statement was needed to sweeten the repurchase agreement.
Will this new game work better? May the government is deep into its improv stage. The government is now voting by vote – and on Friday it is time to play again.
If the European Parliament approves a repurchase agreement by the end of the week, the European Union is expected to extend the Brexit deadline from 12 April to 22 May. But Parliament needs to approve both the withdrawal agreement and the political statement if it wants to avoid going outside the EU without a transitional period.
At the same time, demonstrators demand that Brexit have even marched against the capital this week during a "Leave Means Leave" banner rolled out by Bow-Brexites, radio personality, and President Trump friend Nigel Farage – there for it Most have prayed for the march in the rain. These people at one time numbered a few dozen. It is compared to the hundreds of thousands that came out to convene a new referendum on Brexit on Saturday.
There have now been a number of "meaningful votes" and "guiding voices", but the Parliament has twice refused to pass May's withdrawal agreement. On Wednesday, the House of Commons could not get a simple majority for their own eight Brexit proposals.
The same MPs threaten another, it goes Monday. It is possible that they will narrow down the possibilities of just a handful of people seeking to know if the House of Commons can go to another Brexit referendum or back a "softer" Brexit, say along the lines of Norway's half-half agreements with the EU  The voices are not binding and can be ignored by the government, as Cabinet ministers have warned.
EU leaders advise that the withdrawal agreement is not open to more negotiation. That's what it is.
A spokesman for the European Commission tweeted Thursday: "@EU_Commission notes the guiding voices in @HouseofCommons last night. This is part of an ongoing #UK political process that we fully respect. We counted 8 & nbsp; no & nbsp; last night. Now we need a "yes" on the way. "
Charles Grant, director of the Center for European Reform in London, spent the last few days to see this infinite second-acting drama – all structure, no degradation – from Brussels
In a tweet Grant Europeans reported "believe the chances of no agreement being high because they do not trust the British political class not to screw up. "
On Thursday, former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab – who may be a candidate for maize jobs – said he still believed it was possible to obtain concessions from Brussels on the repurchase agreement. If not? Raab suggested "sensible conversations" to go without agreement.
Many in the UK still chewed May & # 39; s back me then bag me move, causing more conservatives – some of whom committed corn jobs – to signal that they would finally be ready to support May & # 39; 39; s Brexit Agreement. But that turn doesn't seem to be enough.
Democratic Unionists, the small Northern Irish party that is proclaiming the maize government, and which May is desperate to get on her side, made it clear that their problem is not a staff. They will not vote for the agreement.
"We will continue to do what we can to get the best deal for Northern Ireland," said Nigel Dodds, vice president of the party, to the BBC.
Although May did not offer an expiration date, there is already great interest in who can replace her.
Trump weighed in Thursday and wanted the "Brexit Movement" well and commending May. "She's strong, she's tough, and she's in there," he said.
Asked about May rival and former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson as a possible future leader, Trump replied: "I like Boris Johnson very much. He is my friend."
Broadcasters on Thursday were camped outside the prominent conservative politicians home such as. Minister for the Environment Michael Gove and Home Secretary Sajid Javid.
Nigel Evans, a conservative MP, seemed to sum up the mood of the nation when he told the BBC: "All we know about tomorrow is called Friday."
