Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

They walked back most of what they said in the referendum campaign, and have shown willingness to simply break treaty agreements before - ‘don’t pay the EU a penny’, and so on. They might vote it through and attempt to get an idiot like Johnson or Gove in charge to give them the Brexit they really want. Might be a better punt for them than risking an extension and possible GE/referendum.

 

The worst scenario would be a GE with May stepping down and Boris, who is by far the most popular amongst Tory members, becoming Prime Minister. That would complete the insanity of this decade, along with fascists taking over the European Parliament in May. I feel like I'm in a Star Trek style nightmare alternative universe.

I see the packages being sent London and Glasgow have been claimed by someone stating they are the IRA, worrying times ahead with the Irish situation.

If May's deal is voted down and then a no deal scenario is rejected tomorrow does anyone know if that is even legally enforceable?

They can rule out No deal all they like, if we get to March 29th with the EU not in agreement it's No Deal by default.

Whatever his motivation, I am pleasantly surprised that Cox has been so honest.  I didn’t think he would be.

If No Deal is voted down it triggers an extension of A50 vote, if that passes the EU would have to agree to avoid crashing out on March 29th.

Just watched JRM grilling the Brexit Sec. Going by that exchange you wouldn't think the ERG are going to back this.

If the ERG or DUP back this after Cox’s advice it would show them as a bunch of lying gutless c***s.

They may feel they are still able to spin their way out of it but looks rather unlikely at the moment.

They could argue it's the only way to guarantee respecting the referendum result and leaving the EU on March 29th. With a heavy heart of course. I don't really think they give a f**k about the backstop, if they think a hard brexit is ruled out they might cave.

Aye, I saw that, and whilst I don't condone bombs anywhere I'm struggling to understand why the IRA would countenance targeting Glasgow - it doesn't add up.

While I don't expect this shambles to change hardcore NO's to YES, I'd be very surprised if anyone with more than one brain cell now believes that Scotland couldn't run their own show better than this shower of shite, over the last 3 or 4 years they've shown the world that they couldn't put a pound coin in a shopping trolley without the help of civil servants, even then it would take quite a few of said civil servants to complete the task.

We can only hope that this disaster ends up tearing our main parties to shreds.

Glasgow Uni is a very strange choice.

I struggle to under the ERG position, surely this is going to be the hardest Brexit they get? Parliament will never allow no deal, so any future Brexit deal will surely be softer.

When push comes to shove at the vote tonight, ^^^^^^^this is what will be going through many minds.

Over the last 3 years, the cabal of Tories and various right-wing extremists have proven that their statements on 'red lines' mean absolutely f*ck all. They'll bend whatever way it suits them and then lie, as if whatever they've stated loudly for tghe last 3 years never actually happened.

My (uneducated) guess is that enough arms will be severely twisted to get this half-arsed proposal through parliament tonight. Then May and the rest of them will release self-congratulary statements about how they defeated the EU. Spitfirres, Dunkirk, blue passports etc.

And the whole sickening nonsense will move on to the next stage.
