May needed the parliament's order to issue the notice to invoke A50 so logically she needs one to withdraw as well. Another thing that will neer happen.

AIUI not the case; invocation of A50 removes people's rights so that needed an Act of Parliament, but revocation just restores status quo so not needed - thought that was the court ruling?

LOL.
They might as well say: "We are deciding for you".
And what does GB need an extension for if they obey to this next week?


PS I heard that differently: They said the extension can last longest until May 23rd
It's hard these days to trust newspapers on their scoops.

This is the Sun (I have no clue about all English papers, I know this is tabloid, but no clue how trustworthy the sun is)

The Sun is the most trustworthy journalistic tome we have in the UK. Its integrity is without question and its standards unsurpassed. HTH.

Which ties in nicely to last night when Marton & Edwin were talking about beer, and 22 about tits.

Stay on this thread long enough and it goes to pot.

If she revokes then that'll be the end of the Conservative Party. So every cloud and all that.
Or on the other hand, maybe the ~50% or more of all voters who don't want Brexit will flock to the Conservative Party and embrace them as their saviour -- and good riddance to the Brexiteer Tories who will have to form another party if they want some sort of affiliation.

Does it have a good crossword, or is correcting the spelling mistakes work enough?

I feel the need to explain, briefly.

Beer: marton and EdwinNL had a brief spat which was about to culminate in handbags at dawn, when they agreed to settle it with lakeside beers at dusk.

Tits: 3Wishes provided this Google translation of a Dutch newspaper article that EdwinNL had linked in a post to not prove some point of his. I was delighted by Google's translation of a phrase in the second-last line.
