    Its a true replay... vote on extension, dont say what extension means. EU says no extension unless you have a plan. UK cant agree on a plan, blames EU.

    UK: I voted to be rich and handsome, why is nothing happening?

    Obviously after that, the EU itself has to agree to it.
    The bill just tells May to seek an extension. And it lays out her thoughts on the length.

    Dear lord, only 112 Tory MPs voted for the government's motion, 188 of them didn't.

    To be fair, she now has to come back to the House to explain how she'll go about getting an extension. I have a brown feeling that this is when she'll put her deal back on the table for a third try. And fail again ...

    Who are you to tell the people why they voted for something?

    I think it will narrowly pass. It's the last chance of any genuine Brexit.
    If I could find some sane leavers I'd love to ask them if they would really prefer May's deal over current EU membership (with perks preserved.) It just seems strictly worse.

    There are two thoughts on what is the acceptable extension.

    1) Brexit has to end before the election starts. (23rd May)
    Although various proposals are already discussed what would happen in the Brexit deadline is extended later than the EU elections, it is common sense it is easy to defeat them in the EU court. One thing for sure, nobody wants to listed to the Farage bullshit anymore. (Actually, he is the one expected to attack it on court for the sweet euro money.)

    2) Brexit extension should be until June, after the elections.
    UK crashing out gives a story to the euro skeptics: as the EU is the bad guy, the unreasonable bureaucrats hurting us and our UK business partners. (Holland & Belgium as far as I know.)

    So why did they win? It wasn't 350 million that time.

    so, i am confused here.

    you voted down May's deal again.
    you voted down a referendum on the whole thing.
    you voted for a extension of negotiations.

    and you're going to vote on a de-facto motion of no confidence next week, possibly triggering a general election, am i getting this right ?

    because i struggle to see why the EU is going to nod and just accept it without either another public vote or another general election.

    To be honest there has already been an effective motion of no confidence - several, in fact.

    As for the second ref. motion, it wasn’t really the actual motion, as Barth says.

    so, are you going to figure out what the everloving fuck you want to do already ?

    because, well the popcorn has been good so far, but i don't wanna refill until we have a date for the main event and the bowl is empty save for those that didn't quite pop right.
