Well let me start of by saying brexit is ******** to quote the Libdems. At the time there was a fairly large backing in the HOC for brexit to go ahead. If the Tories had started the negotiations in good faith and sorted out a deal fairly quickly the majority of the house would have voted for it. It was only as time went on and everyone (except brexiters) saw how utterly incompetent they were, did people really start to question things. So in summory they had a small window of opportunity to get it past the HOC. They blew it. Now if I was a CT nut or a brexiter I would look at that as May the remainer doing it on purpose. Where as I look at it as the Tories are just massivly incompetent.
