TMay continues to worry ERG MPs that we will get no Brexit, if they fail to vote for her WA trap.
She had no legal authority to request a date change to 12/04 without a new Parliament Act and we have already left.
But if around 30 ERG MPs were to doubt the above legal position, then her WA Bill could pass at the 4th hearing.
But if you believe (as I do) that her extension was unlawful, then they must continue to hold their nerve. So I propose to email them again, as below:
Thank you for your continuing conviction and tenacity in honouring the will of the 408 constituencies, which voted to leave the E.U. – not to remain half in/half out.
While International Treaties such as NAFTA and NATO have unilateral escape clauses, the proposed WAB does not and it is a trap.
As you know MPs had no legal authority to request a date change to 12/04 without a new Parliament Act, which means that we actually left the E.U. on 29/03.
So please don’t be intimidated into voting for the the PM’s proposed WAB, leaving us enslaved to the E.U. rulebook. Your vision and integrity is much appreciated.
Please keep emailing them!
Respectfully, Roger Arthur

On the 10th November 2015, the then Prime Minister, David Cameron made his Chatham House speech on Europe. Memorably, and notably, he said, and I quote verbatim:
“And ultimately it will be the judgment of the British people in the referendum that I promised and that I will deliver. You will have to judge what is best for you and your family, for your children and grandchildren, for our country, for our future. It will be your decision whether to remain in the EU on the basis of the reforms we secure, or whether we leave. Your decision. Nobody else’s. Not politicians’. Not Parliament’s. Not lobby groups’. Not mine. Just you. You, the British people, will decide. At that moment, you will hold this country’s destiny in your hands. This is a huge decision for our country, perhaps the biggest we will make in our lifetimes. And it will be the final decision.”
He went on to say:
“When the British people speak, their voice will be respected – not ignored. If we vote to leave, then we will leave. There will not be another renegotiation and another referendum.”
His successor, Prime Minister Theresa May, doubled down on that pledge with her ‘Brexit Means Brexit’, ‘No Deal Is Better Than A Bad Deal’, her ‘Red Lines’ and finally her repetition, one hundred and eight times in the House of Commons, that ‘Britain will leave the European Union on 29th March 2019.’

UK: guilty of Brexit, prisoner of the ‘deal’?
Since House of Commons Speaker John Bercow has allowed Mrs May a third vote on her Withdrawal Agreement minus the political declaration – thus, apparently, making the proposition ‘substantially different’ – there is now a chance that her ‘deal’ will be passed, despite the fact that the EU may never allow us to withdraw from the Withdrawal Agreement. Now it seems even prisoners can get the key to their cells (‘Prisoners get the key to their own cells at “respectful” jail’, Telegraph, March 29, 2019).
At least they never agreed to being locked up in the first place and, as far as we know, the only crime that the UK electorate is guilty of is voting to leave the EU. Despite this, not only will we hand them the key to our cell but they may well throw it away.
