So parliamentary sovereignty only matters when it is in your favour! As Farage is also involved, who would have guessed he lied about this as well.

Tory MPs going behind Parliament's back again as well.


I'd laugh if this caused the revocation of A50.
If this did happen and they sought to influence the decision then the government really should revoke it.

Banks, Wigmore and Farage really are completely contemptable shits.

If the EU do refuse an Article 50 extension, then I honestly find it hard to predict how parliament will react.

Obviously the ERG will reject May's deal and reject revoking Article 50, in the hope of a No Deal Brexit.
And equally obviously the Lib Dems & the Nationalists & the remainer wing of the Tories will reject May's deal and favour revoking Article 50.
May and her dwindling band of Tory loyalists will favour her deal again.

But what will Corbyn do?
Hard to see him ever supporting May's deal because he frankly seems to care more about party point scoring that he does about EU membership.
But would he vote to revoke Article 50 or would he allow a No Deal exit? And would his party (who've been impressively disciplined to this point) follow his lead?

Popcorn....nom nom nom.....popcorn......

Considering his continued comments about stopping a no deal Brexit, Corbyn would have no choice but to revoke A50 imo.

Fingers crossed.

If that gets through, I hope both he and May have the sense to stand down and let some fresh blood in to work on a more collaborative approach. Both May and Corbyn are busted flushes in my opinion.

Sadly I can't see Corbyn stepping down considering his repetitive and pointless (based on Parliamentary arithmetic) calls for a General Election.

The Spelman/Dromey Amendment gets passed 312-308. This despite the Govt using the whip to try to defeat it, so another Govt defeat.

Edit: Malthouse Amendment not passed.

Ironically due to the S/D Amendment, the Govt is now against its own motion. This vote will potentially really show up some dissent in the Tory Party and the Cabinet.

Govt gets beaten on its own motion by 43 votes and Parliament rejects a no deal Brexit. This is even though the Govt whipped on the vote and Ministers had to either abstain or resign should they vote against the Govt whip. 1 junior Minister, Sarah Newton has resigned so far and plenty abstained (Cabinet Ministers Rudd, Gauke, Clarke, Mundell and 8 junior Ministers).

Apparently according to a Daily Telegraph journalist, 4 Cabinet Ministers (I'm assuming the same as above) abstained for the Spelman/Dromey amendment which the Govt lost by 4 votes.

I don't like the likes of Arron Banks and the Tory MEPs playing games like that. Sadly, this process has descended into a back handed farce and manipulation, so it does not surprise me in the least that one hand giveth, and the other taketh away.

One very good reason the EU may not want to extend Article 50 for a long time is the potential contagion they may let in if the UK Euro elections go ahead, especially with the growing populism in Europe and anger in the UK over Brexit not happening. It's a massive risk to the gravy train. Can they afford to take the risk?

So will the EU negotiate again, I wonder?

Do they need to when Parliament is ripping itself apart?

It's a risk for their new regime to have to contend with, but I can see the old order not wanting to budge because they think the gruel is already thin enough.

How long before this is hijacked by undesirables? What's Tommy R up to now?
If Stephen Yaxley- Lennon aka Tommy R is involved in anyway .... its highly likely to turn into the prediction in that Kaiser Chiefs song ....
