It would be even more irresponsible than David Cameron putting an undefined “Leave the EU” option on the 2016 ballot paper.
Perhaps, against all the odds, we will find a way of muddling through and preserve our broad church for a time after the era of Brexit has passed.
Drained of authority? Yes. Rudderless? Certainly. Humiliated? Absolutely. But May’s very weakness is becoming a strange strength.
She looks increasingly like the captive of pro-Remain cross-party MPs working together against the pro-Leave referendum mandate.
Chloe Westley: If the Conservatives bow to May’s betrayal of the referendum result, they will be cursed for a generation

There is still time for adoption of a comprehensive free trade deal on offer from the EU and applied to the entire UK, which even now could provide a way forward.
The UK should copy Canada only in regard to how it pursues a deal, and that means securing one that is bespoke to our economic needs and realities.
Obama’s EU referendum intervention didn’t help deliver a Remain result for Cameron. It’s not clear that the Government has learned from the experience.
There has been agreement about its status between the UK and Spain – contrary to Remain warnings during and since the referendum.
