It is a lovely spring day today in London, so I took the opportunity at lunch time to take a quick walk from my client's offices in Whitehall through Parliament Square and along the front of the Palace of Westminster. The now-familiar pro- and anti-Brexit camps were starting to assemble in advance of this afternoon's proceedings.
There was quite a bit of movement over the weekend just gone so far as Brexit is concerned and some further moves are emerging as today progresses. I therefore thought I would set out my predictions about how this week may progress.
- Teresa May's Brexit deal will finally get voted through this week on the basis that many MPs believe that if it doesn't Brexit won't happen at all.
- A short, tactical extension of Article 50 (of around three months) will be agreed with the EU27 before the weekend.
- Teresa May will be replaced by Dominic Raab relatively soon after the deal is done.
That's my starter for ten.
