    Much of our campaign since the 2017 general election has revolved around the "Exit from Brexit". We need to win over Remainers; by having a clear and repeated anti-Brexit position, the electorate will know what we stand for.

    There are a few problems.

    Firstly, we are not "anti-Brexit", we are pro-EU. Every time we say "Brexit", we evoke certain thought patterns within the minds of voters, particularly the so-called ReLeavers (those who voted Remain but feel we should Leave because of the referendum).

    The insuperable political problem for Mrs May and for the Brexit project will be the Republic of Ireland. It is obvious to Irish observers that Mrs May has entrapped herself by undertaking last December not to impose United Kingdom (UK) customs controls on the Irish border, and not to make any changes to the relationship between Northern Ireland and Great Britain. In my view, she may well at that moment have undermined the whole project of leaving the European Union (EU). Brexit may very well never happen.
