John Bercow very much likes the sound of his own voice
So do I (Bercow's voice, that is)—he's an awesome speaker. And an awesome Speaker.

That is correct. His ban was very short.

Boris Johnson to make a statement from NY in the next 30 minutes.

This might get ugly. Johnson's now fighting for his political career.
I can't wait to see Trump's take on this, given how wholeheartedly he's endorsed BoJo. Maybe people will start to see that what Trump wants is good only for Trump.

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

Another court ruling today!
Quote:
Google does not have to apply Europe’s landmark “right to be forgotten” law globally, the continent’s highest court has ruled.

The right to be forgotten was enshrined by the European court of justice in 2014, when it said Google must delete “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant” data from its results when a member of the public requests it.

On Tuesday, the ECJ ruled that there was no obligation under EU law for a search engine operator to extend the 2014 ruling beyond the EU member states.
More details here Source

So if Brexit happens, Brits lose the “right to be forgotten”.

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

BoJo 'strongly disagrees'.

To be fair it was a reasonable statement given the kicking he just got. He respects, the judicial system, will abide by the decision though he disagrees with it, no whining like a little bitch or clownish blasting of 'so called judges'.

Well so far at least.

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

BoJo is styling it out in NY. His language use is very interesting: very low key, "I don't think", "we" "us"...

He "strongly disagrees" with the Supreme court ruling and intends to leave with a deal.

"As the law currently stands "... he keeps saying this. He is one dangerous individual. I don't know how he can stay as PM after this.

Well no, until a GE it would have to be Tory cannon fodder. Labour would stand a fighting chance if Corbyn would release his death grip on power at all costs... put someone in as leader who doesn't get the nation's collective back up.

A comment under Nicola Sturgeon's tweet:

"I liked Lady Hale’s choice of brooch - a spider. No doubt a nod to Robert the Bruce and Sir Walter Scott (Oh what a tangled web we weave When first we practice to deceive)."

I bet he'll try to cling on. Otherwise he'd not only go down in history as having the briefest tenure in No 10 but also lose the chance to increase his majority in a general election.

Yet at the Labour conference they again threw support behind him. It's obvious a number of voters hate Corbyn enough to plug their nose and vote for Johnson/Conservative. Why make it so easy?

At least one big relief in the Brexit saga: the rule of law in the UK is alive & kicking. Parliaments should never be silenced in a real democracy.

I never want to hear Boris Johnson or any other Brexiteer say again that the European Union is undemocratic.
