    The Lib Dems have overtaken Labour on the YouGov tracker.

    I look forward to the inevitable replies about how YouGov carry a strong anti-Labour bias so this is meaningless.

    It isn't meaningless, Labour aren't a one issue party and at the moment politics is single issue.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    If only there had been some way for Labour to get in front of that issue, you know, provide some kind of clear, honest, unequivocal political stance. A manifesto commitment, even.

    I realise I'm wasting my time here.

    You're right they should have. But they didn't for a whole host of reasons, some valid and some not.

    Can't be that often a QC gets told he's talking shite by two separate supreme court judges

    Hypothetical: Government loses the case, parliament is recalled, Labour conference doesn't happen, Corbyn's decree remains party policy :thinking:

    Doesn't count though since they DON'T WEAR WIGS. How this thing is meant to be pitched to Netflix with that sort of lack of commitment to adding some cultural flavour is completely beyond me.

    Absolute legal scenes. That was some bitch slapping Lavery got. I understood the point he was making but he's just wasted his time in front of the court there.

    Mr Lavery says it is "unthinkable" that Northern Ireland wouldn't be taken into consideration in this decision-making process.
    No it isn't. I think it regularly.

    Shirely if he just repeats the prorogation, repeating the effect + intent of the first prorogation, it's just as unlawful

    This will all make a great paragraph in future sovereignty essays.

    So you are hoping that this part of manifesto is delivered too?

    [Brexit secretary] Stephen Barclay said the UK should be given another year to find a new policy for the Northern Ireland border.

    The intervention comes as Downing Street said it would not be bound by an “artificial deadline” in talks.


    We're now so far beyond farce and I don't think there are words to describe where we are.

    Brexit will be a fudge come October (likely, this is generally how the EU operates) or it won’t happen at all. I imagine they’ll rejig the backstop and call it a day.

    That hearing yesterday, though, was a masterclass. Any aspiring lawyers should glean as much as they can from Pannick and his submissions. When I used to do pro bono skeletons/submissions for FRU i dealt with a childlike amount of evidence and the advocacy was hardly contentious. His mastery of the facts and law, in the most uncharted constitutional territory for a very long time, was nothing short of sublime; the man’s an encyclopaedia.
