    Big day in Parliament (Part 53)

    It looks like Boris and Dominic have miscalculated badly here.

    We'll see what happens in the next 48 hours but it looks like their attempt to shut down Parliament so that we will default into a no deal Brexit have failed.

    And secondly, their attempt to have a General Election if today's vote goes through also looks doomed to failure.

    Boris tells us that he will not in any circumstance ask the EU for a further extension...but if the vote passes today and Parliament doesn't vote for a GE then what can he do? Resign?

    He has allowed himself to be badly out outmaneuvered here.

    I donít think so 59 /60

    As far as I can see the man looks all good to me, it just doesnít agree with all the re moaners who simply donít want to leave , but donít have the balls to come out and say that itís all about leaving with a no deal smoke screen.
    Corbyn isnít fit to tie his shoes and your new leader is un believable , a second referendum and if the results doesnít suit she wonít accept that one either.

    And yet there they all stand demanding democracy when the hypocrisy is they have been denying democracy for the last three years.

    Politics is finished in this country, a man stood up to the rest of Europe for his country and all you lot want to do is shoot him down.

    Thatís typical of politics here.

    If you are in thrall of a person who is chauvinistic, into love thyself narcissism, misogynistic, racist, is a child bullying, overly privileged eejit and suffers from a serious dose of the Dunning-Kruger effect, BoJo is definitely your man...

    Yes, Boris acting just like your normal politician, meanwhile, the 27 other nations look on in amazement at the united front of British politics ---as army says --politics is finished, you just can't trust any of them to do anything except watch their bank balance grow.

    In the last three years or so I have met just two politicians I could trust to do what they say. I have met another three hundred or so I would not give house room to. We are in the middle of a crisis of faith politically and religious wise and the country needs someone or something to unite behind. I'm at a loss I really am.

    Very sad BT, fortunately, I realised in the early 1990s that most were very devious and I have had very little respect for the majority since then.
    The country is badly in need of a leader but I really can't see any unity in the near future.

    Absolutely right army. Three years in which they have been setting the country at each other’s throats and as soon as they are faced with having to stand up and make a decision they run screaming to the courts. He pushed me! He pushed me! Pathetic, pitiful.

    I hate to say it, but we have turned into the most politically correct snowflakes on the globe. There's so much wrong it's hard to know where to start.

    Two billion people on this planet have no access to clean water and we are whinging about our lack of democracy. FFS.

    I could be mistaken 59, but I thought it was the default position in Article 50 of the EU's Treaty of Rome that says we leave without a WA should the EU not be able to conclude one with us ? I'm a little bit confused as to why you Remoaners should be so reluctant to comply with an EU Treaty requirement and so frazzled when our government simply try to act in accord with it.

    I understand that the Remoaners wish to take over the business of government in the Commons and instruct the PM to apply to the EU for an extension of A50 for another three months, so clearly the problem is the EU's A50 and nothing to do with our government or PM, we didn't frame A50, the EU did, perhaps your ire would be better directed across the Channel ?

    I also understand that the prorogation will result in just 3 days parliamentary business being lost, as the Remoaners have had almost three and a half years to overturn the democratic decision of the British people, could you explain just why this three days lost is so crucial ? Seems to me a bit fanciful to claim you could achieve in just three days what you've failed to achieve in three and a half years, besides which, with Bercow in Remoaners pockets, you can do as you please tomorrow, you can even bring the government down if you wish, then we can have a proper people's vote. Yes, let's have an General Election, let's get it sorted once and for all, I quite like that idea 59, do you ?

    OMG sinkov, I do not have the energy to help the Labour Party fight a General Election just yet. What will be the promises and manifestos this time?

    Quite frankly I could not trust any of our Party leaders to deliver an envelope, let alone stick to Election pledges.

    So yet another MP, who in fact had received a vote of no confidence from his own Association, has defected to another party but remains as the MP for a constituency which has been Tory for 30 years and had a majority of over 16,000 over Labour at the last General Election, in fact, he had over 28,000 more votes than the Liberal Democrat candidate.

    This is a bigger farce than Brexit! He should resign along with all the others who are cheating the people who voted them in.
    I just hope that Boris ploughs ahead with everything, leaves the EU and then resigns with object achieved ---and I voted to remain.

    Not a terrorist supporter though BT , try as he might the stigma just wonít leave him, sad for the old lad really heís done wonders to dodge the wrath of others up to know.

    People get arrested in the street for peaceful protest against terrorism and there he is patting them on the back without a care in the world.

    Me and the Child Bride have just said exactly the same Supersub6. What's democratic about that?

    LATEST....

    In order for the bill to pass it has to go through the House of Lords.

    Apparently around 90 Tory Lords have put in amendments in an effort to talk out the bill so that it fails.

    Watch this space

    This clown jumping ship makes no difference BT, on Brexit the government has no majority, 10/20/30 Tory MPs, who knows the actual number, will vote against their own government, so Mr Lee joining the LibDems makes no difference whatsoever. It's looking more and more like a GE, and Boris is still bouncing, polling well ahead of any other party. If the Tories and Farage get their act together, and surely to god they will, we'll be out and laughing on October 31st.

    Well at least Bojo is trying to stick to the Tory manifesto pledge to take us out of the EU BT, god knows what your lot are up to, but keeping their manifesto pledge to honour the result of the referendum has now been well and truly binned. How you will cope with a GE I have no idea, presumably Labour will be fighting on a ticket to keep us in the EU, or hold another referendum, or to extend A50, or something, who knows, do you, I don't. Best of luck explaining your U turn to the 17.4 million people who voted to leave, in fact it could be so entertaining explaining it on the doorsteps of Leave voters in Bolton that I'm almost tempted to volunteer for a night out on the knocker with you. I do like a good laugh.

    It is good news though, I can't imagine many Labour-LibDem pacts holding up, so the Remoan vote will be split all over the place, as long as the Tories and TBP use their noggins and don't take each other on, we're home and dry.

    But a General Election is out of his grasp Sinkov.

    Unless Corbyn does something stupid.

    Oh, hang on....
