Will legacy, progress and survival drive politicians to accept May’s hard Brexit?
The Brexit campaign win delivered a mandate without a Commons majority, a clear manifesto or a political party to support its execution.

Those interests – principally between May, Brexit politicians, DUP, Remainer politicians, Leave and Remain voters – may finally be converging.
