The politicians who ‘are determined to prevent no deal’ are shameless liars. Their one overwhelming objective is precisely to prevent a deal between HM Government and the EU that might obtain a majority in Parliament. They wish to exclude the possibility of Britain leaving the EU without a deal because they know that this prospect is the only spur to the EU to offer a deal that Parliament might accept. They seek to frustrate Brexit itself on any terms but fear to be exposed for their dishonesty before the electorate (having promised to respect the referendum for which they voted) and so they must prevent a deal so that they can pretend merely to oppose ‘no deal’. They are without honour.
