Yes, I get the point, strengthening her against the extremists. Trouble is, won't we end up with what the extremists want anyway, whatever the parliamentary arithmetic?

Yeah. Probably. The whole thing is a disaster IMO. Michael Heseltine recently described brexit as "by far the worst decision Britain has made since World War II". Which means if you're debating or arguing with someone who is pro-brexit, it can often mean you're talking to someone who is more conservative, more protectionist, more isolationist and more nationalist than fricking Heseltine! You're not going to change their minds. At least I don't think you are.

And so... I look for silver linings where I can. And the fact that a larger majority will add flexibility to the British negotiating position is one such silver lining. Even if I doubt May will actually make use of that flexibility.
