Thank heavens for that.

Now we can watch the disaster that is Brexit unfold without interference from an in-house tory war.. for a wee-bit longer at least.

63% is a lot better than 52 - and I didn't see any lies on a bus either . But I get it now, you ARE JRM - that explains a lot then.

Another year, is what the rules state. But it seems that Mrs May has been telling colleagues that she won't fight another General Election, so she may well step down before another leadership spill can be attempted.

Aside from the slightly bitter and butthurt tinge to your post , it has to be said that if a house of MPs don't know what the hell they're voting for they should, therefore, not be left in charge of anything more complex than negotiating which brand of biscuits they serve in the coffee breaks, never mind Brexit.

And just to soothe your burn, you can rest assured that they WOULD get another vote if they want one.

Well in my opinion after 2 years of shilly-shallying over Brexit, Westminster should step aside and leave
it to those real politicians up in the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, to decide where we go from here
with Brexit.

Naturally there will be no hesitation from Nicola as to which way she would steer the UK over Brexit.

Yeah, hand it over to the National Socialists of Scotland, the real politicians that couldn't accept the result of the Scottish referendum and now can't accept the result of Brexit either. Great plan!

And the UK will remain in the EU along the way - marvelous !!

Of course the majority of Scottish voters - voted to remain in the EU in the 2016 EU Referendum,
no doubt benefiting from being in an ERG free zone.

In simple terms - you "demand another vote". Another vote is possible but you'd have to become an MP to get the ball rolling.

Or was it just another "whataboutism"?

2 firm Brexit, one less so. So basically the same except the Brexit vote this time wasn't split between 2 candidates and there were then a few Tory MPs more to give a larger total as well.

So actually pretty comparable.
