Looks like the PM doesn't want the worry of losing more Cabinet ministers. Feels more like gagging though...

Is that new from him—or just his restatement that MV3 can not proceed on a substantially unchanged deal? We don't know whether May has some amendment of substance to present, do we?

No, not new - he restates only new vote allowed if significant changes are made. To boot, he is pre-empting/ blocking any attempt by the government to get around his ruling.

Your move, Mrs May.

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

As - I - seriously can't see through what the heck the Brits are doing, I turned to the German news once again.
They let me know that the Brits will start voting about 16 (sixteen ) options that have been brought up by various people. A to P, they labelled them. LOL.

That should take a while to narrow them down to one. (With the system of friendly, advisory, non-binding, unfriendly what ever some of us will not see the result).

Yep, the rest of the world keeps being entertained.
Fun factor: AfaIk EU only offers the deal on the table, no deal or stay in EU (do they still offer staying in the EU? )
So all this voting about God knows what is ..... I'm too polite to use the word.

Voting on Brexit options begins

The debate on the eight Brexit alternatives selected earlier by Speaker John Bercow has now finished.

MPs will now be given half an hour to go into the voting lobbies and cast their votes for the options they endorse, using paper ballots.

The results will be announced by Mr Bercow later this evening.
The speaker chose 8 of the 16 proposals, so they didn't debate and are not voting on all 16 that were tabled.

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

So May will resign before phase two of the negotiations provided her deal is passed.

And Nicola nails it again:

https://twitter.com/NicolaSturgeon/s...58913678176258

"If Brexit ends up being forced through on the basis of a deal no one supports - indeed a deal so bad that the PM has to promise to resign to get it through - it will make an already bad project even worse."

3. Hard Brexit (no deal)
4. Not hard Brexit (no deal)
5. Revoke Art. 50
6. Not revoke Art. 50

I think that if you had totally made it up, you'd have got a lot closer to this chain of events than if you'd thought it through logically. FLECK!!! I've confused myself

I like that one. Wtf is that?

Mrs. May offered to resign if they accept "her" deal? Although I do not see the logic in this I am now convinced it must be a crap deal or she wouldn't run from implementing it.

I "like" the way it's 'May's deal', all 'her fault' ..... not much longer and the whole idea of Brexit was her's and her's alone ....
If GB governement really were a one-man-band, Brexit would be long solved.

That's "not no deal", which is pretty much the only thing about Brexit that Parliament actually did agree on.
