Another moment, Mr. Executioner

The British parliament is undecided. The vote on the possibility of a no deal is very divided. 321 against a no deal but 278 in favor of a lack of agreement to go out. Almost half of the parliamentarians wants a brutal exit from the EU.
The idea, supported by many commentators, that it would be enough to abandon the exit procedure because it is not popular is false.
What is interesting is that the parliament was very much in favor of the “remain” just after the referendum. It has evolved a lot. This is why a second referendum is in no way a guarantee of a “good vote”.
This is the lesson of last night’s vote (Wednesday).

Next step tonight with the vote on the deadline request. It can not run after the start of the next European semester, otherwise the English will have to vote in the elections for the European Parliament.
But from now to the end of June, what can we expect again?
And will the Commission and the European governments validate this extension for not much?
This possible postponement is reminiscent of Madame du Barry asking the executioner December 8, 1793 “One more time Mr. Executioner”. We know that the outcome was fatal.
