Press play. this is brilliant. Farrage will be remembered as the man who destroyed Great Britain. Despite claiming to try save it. Ps he’s in Putins pocket
But this? Only 77 people turned up for his March to London.

The speaker of the House of Commons has stepped in.
Britain is officially lunged into a constitutional crisis.
Interesting times indeed.

Basically, at this point she can seek an extension from the EU (which they will have conditions for), or she can treat this one instance as an exception to the rule and assume that a majority in the House supports that.

The latter seems like a gambit that ultimately ends her career, yes?

Her career is shot to shit no matter what.
She did all this to try maintain party unity.
She put her party which is bitterly divided, before country.

EU are already planning to deal with her successor. Leaked document has outlines forecssting what they’ll ask for,
She’s gone it’s just a matter of when. She certainly won’t be in negotiations with the EU post brexit. She’s already agreed to step down to buy votes to get her deal through HoC

I was reading an article yesterday that said the last vote had a provision for allowing another referendum but it was voted down as well because - and this is where it got weird - the people voting wanted it to get worse before voting on another referendum. Maybe it was the article but that sounds idiotic.

Maybe I should be more specific. I mean, I understand that her time is running out. An ending seems inevitable. But it seems to me (admittedly from afar) that counting on the House to simultaneously majority support both her existing deal AND her bypassing Bercow’s decision would probably end her career immediately.

Maybe the deal could have eeked by on its own, if it had been reintroduced. But the Tories (who might otherwise enjoy a chance to shit on Bercow) are all for taking no deal at all, and Labour seems to me like they’re fairly sympathetic to him (maybe also because of his skirmishes with Tories?). It just looks to me like she’s trapped taking whatever the EU will give her, and at whatever cost.

Remember this. Particularly about the last line.
The Eu deal hasn’t changed. At all.
The part that is lost on the British and their media and Parliament is a lot of them still think they’re voting on versions of the Eu deal. They aren’t.
They’re voting and goin. In circles pointlessly voting on what they want from it and what amendments they can get.

But it isn’t ammendments to the Eu deal. Just their own dead in the womb miscarriage understanding of it all

A man employing an albeit archaic piece of British law, specific to his role and remit, to defend British democracy.
And he’s gettjbg taken apart and savaged for the thing the bloodthirsty crowd want.

But the papers play it like he’s opposing them.

Brexit is the gift that keeps on giving.
