Perhaps the one thing that everyone can agree on is that Brexit has become a national crisis and an embarrassment to us Brits. Nichola Ross Martin suggests a way out of the log jam.

What do we do now?

Like many people I am unclear exactly what Mrs May's deal means.

I can also foresee that if we leave the EU with no deal we will be punished by the EU.

The EU is our neighbour and our biggest trading partner and, any future trading arrangement will come at a price: leave with no deal and that will all have to be re-negotiated. 

Brexit was also partly fuelled by concerns over immigration.

Leaving the EU will not affect the flow of illegal immigrants to the UK from EU or non-EU countries.

What about fishing rights on a no-deal? Back to the trawler wars.

What now?

All things considered, and we have been considering all this for two years. Perhaps our only viable option is to revoke Article 50.

This does not reverse the results of the 2016 referendum, this simply allows time for rational decision making and will allow the UK to iron out its differences and reunite.
