Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The House of Commons passed (by one vote!) a bill that effectively rules out no deal, but it has to be passed by the House of Lords to become law and of course, it all means nothing if the EU decides not to play along!
The HoL is emphatically Remain. From January this year...

Quote:
The House of Lords has voted to "emphatically reject" a no-deal Brexit scenario in a vote that has been labelled “meaningless”. Lords voted to reject Mrs May’s proposals by 321 to 152 in the ballot on Monday night.

...but we also need to take note of this from the same article...


Quote:
The House of Lords highlighted its toothlessness on its Twitter account, telling one user: “Under the EU (Withdrawal) Act the @HouseofCommons must vote on the withdrawal agreement and the #HouseofLords must complete this debate. The Commons has the final say.”
