The Guardian view on the Brexit impasse: trust citizens to judge the evidence | Editorial

The familiar methods of British politics have failed to find a solution. Parliament must have the confidence to innovateExtending the time available to make a decision does not increase the range of Brexit options, but it allows for a more honest account of those choices and perhaps a more deliberative, less aggressively partisan evaluation of their merits.

A majority of Labour voters want to remain. The leadership should not squander its political capitalMany people on the left seem oddly relaxed about the fact that the Labour leadership is in negotiations with a Tory government about presenting a joint proposal to deliver Brexit. Perhaps this is because they know something I don’t; that the negotiations will definitely fail, for example. Perhaps this is a dance that neither participant can be seen to break up, while each gazes blankly over the ot...
