"The British people want us to get this done!" says Theresa May, implying that they want parliament to endorse her Brexit deal. The only snag: opinion polling suggests they want no such thing. Here are the latest GB-wide numbers from YouGov...
Support the deal: 23%
Oppose the deal: 45%
In fairness that represents an 8% increase in support for the deal, which mean things have gone from catastrophic to merely disastrous for May. But if the Scottish subsample of the poll is to believed (and yes, there are the usual caveats about the reliability of any individual subsample) things are even worse for her here. Only 14% of Scottish respondents support the deal, and 51% oppose it - more than a 3 to 1 margin against.
The likes of Kenny Farquharson, and May loyalists in the Tory government, have tried to get a narrative going that says the SNP should act responsibly and in the national interest by letting the deal through. But for as long as only 14% of the public actually support that notion of "responsibility", there will be absolutely zero pressure on Nicola Sturgeon to reverse her plans to vote the deal down - and with a bit of luck to bring the wretched May premiership to a long-overdue end. Now is the time, Prime Minister, now is the time.
