The worst possible outcome of Brexit for Ireland would be the UK crashing out of the EU without a deal next March because the UK parliament cannot make a decision. The key to avoiding this disaster is in the position of the British Labour Party.

So far, the focus of discussion in regard to Brexit has been on whether the minority Conservative government can reach sufficient consensus internally to make a deal to withdraw the UK from the EU.

But such a deal can only come into effect if it is approved by the House of Commons.
