    So in short, No Deal with be voted out tomorrow and an extension will be voted for on Thursday. And so it goes on...

    Well, it's going the right way. In 4 votes time, she'll have a landslide.

    This is just a replay of the previous vote.

    And the threat of a general election.

    Literally everyone phoning this in.

    Well from what the BBC have suggested, that's the like Parliamentary progression. Presuming the EU agree, which I believe the EU have alluded to agreeing to.

    That the EU gave her this footnote on her deal was about all she could expect. Surely they'll tell her to get fucked if she goes back again.

    Corbyn's "election now" rhetoric is SO BORING.

    So the suggestion is that the EU may not approve an extension to article 50, since they all have to agree to it.

    My hard on for Corbyn is now a floppy at best, I don't even think I could hopefully thumb it in and wake it up with a few pumps.

    I guess she might try and get one more vote on her deal - or we would just crash out with no deal and no other option.

    The Elf On The Shelf has a bigger influence over the Labour Party than Corbyn now. They just know that this isn't a good time to chuck him.

    I think that whilst we need the EU's agreement to extend Article 50, we can completely withdraw the Article 50 declaration and stay in the EU unilaterally.

    Here's hoping.

    If we vote against no deal, and don't vote for a deal, and they won't extend it: there is only one option: revoke article 50.

    But as much as I want it to happen, it won't. Somehow.

    I think that if we go down the route of withdrawing Brexit altogether, 'd rather it not go back to the public and the MP's just suck it up and take the fall for revoking article 50.

    I can't imagine revoking Article 50 without a Referendum going down well at all.

    The only way I can see Brexit not happening is in the unlikely event of a second referendum between Remain and whatever deal whoever is in power has concocted (because it won't be May). And even then I can see GAMMON BRITAIN voting en masse for anything but remain. This is a matter of faith at this stage, common sense left a long time ago.

    So like every given second in the last almost three years, it may well happen in some form or not.

    I have no idea. I only tuned in for the vote.

    I quite like they've started making the big votes on in the evening, because it's better than MOST TV.

    She could still cancel the whole thing as a final 'Fuck you' to her evil party?

    Oh, it wouldn't go down well. I'm not sure anything would at this point.

    But getting people to admit they were wrong, mistaken or misinformed is difficult (I can vouch for that) and I wonder that backing people into another vote may cause a kneejerk response that would potentially be more damaging than the whole thing slipping off the table - with anger directed towards a lot of dispensible MPs whose position on the other side of whatever happens next is likely to be untenable anyway.

    Nothing would go down well, in the short term at the moment. Some want No Deal, some want the current deal, some want a referendum, some want an election, some want a repeal of Article 50. But none of those options has a majority with the public OR the politicians. So everything will get a bad response.

    What they NEED to do is decide WHICH is the ACTUAL BEST OPTION for the country, regardless of what the uneducated masses think (and I include myself in that - as much as I think I'm sure remain is the best option, who am I to say really) and think objectively about the pros and cons of each of these in the LONG TERM rather than the short-term ramifications.

    Of course this is all pie in the sky and will never happen.

    If a full referendum will take 22 weeks or whatever it is to organise, and it’s only advisory anyway, just do a bloody phone vote like big brother and see what comes out. Davina can sneak into the Commons behind the mirrors, Rylan and David Dimbleby can interview people in the green room

    *TIN HAT ALERT*

    The small explosives sent from Dublin to Glasgow and London from the 'IRA' are being questioned in Ireland.
    Dismissed as MI6 fucking up.
    The IRA never had an issue with Scotland. Why would they suddenly start?

    Because we need unanimous EU approval to extend article 50, Nigel Farage is actively lobbying right-wing governments like Italy, Hungary and Poland to veto and force us into no deal in two weeks. :manson:

    Why is he not unemployed/IN JAIL at this point?

    Obviously it would be terrible, people would die, but some shithole EU country or the WALLOONS forcing Great Britannia into no-deal would also be very, very funny.

    Well, if he's doing that then revoking Article 50 unilaterally and then crushing his balls in a vice seems highly reasonable.
