    Rees-Mogg has no gender. Pull down his trousers and it's like Action Man. Those kids were hatched in a laboratory.

    But this time the Lib Dems really do feel like a stronger and more noticeable force under Swinson - I can see them taking more votes off labour than they do off the Tories.

    They might take more votes, but there are hardly any Labour/Lib Dem marginals, whereas there are quite a lot of Lib Dem/Tory ones. If we're really lucky, they'll increase their vote share substantially whilst only taking seats from the baddies.

    It's just the "every year MPs gather to vote against Theresa May's deal" one from a few months ago rejigged, which is a bit CHEEKY if you ask me

    Not a fucking December one.

    Surely it won't go through Parliament.

    How much more can Labour and the Lib Dems reasonably push back against it? The EU will almost certainly grant the extension in light of this, and sadly a pre-election second referendum is dead in the water at this point.

    I think the EU will only allow a short extension to 30th November. This I think would suit both the Tories & Labour. General Election not likely until Jan/Feb next year.

    As far as I can tell, the only person haggling for a short extension is Macron. Of course, he has his fans.

    Let me tell you, if BoJo doesn't get the UK out of the EU before the end of 2019, he'll be dead by June. Found in a hotel room with a banana up his arse and a dead pig's head on his cock. There's a lot of money riding on this and you can see how the strain is telling on him.

    We can hope.

    But he's certainly not quite the fun times Boris we've come to know and hate right now.

    He looks like a guilty man trying to argue his way out of a crime that knows he’s losing the battle. He’s fucked.

    The Government going on STRIKE sounds like the best idea anyone's had for ages. Then we can all have a bit of PEACE AND QUIET.

    Like threatening a strike after three decades of edging over Maggie Thatcher destroying the unions.

    Also: extension confirmed. No Brexit in 2019.

    2020 means will of the people becomes a more and more distant and abstract concept.

    Current polling gives the Tories a 58 seat lead.

    I just can't.

    It's all just a humiliating shambles.

    The best potential numbers I can see, would give (with worst in brackets):

    Tories: 306 (354)
    Labour: 243 (195)
    Lib Dems: 43 (31)
    SNP: 54 (48)

    I would say the only variables would be Corbyn playing another blinder. I don't really see Boris doing anything that will better or worsen his position. Unless he becomes a remainer.

    Of course at best there's still the hope of a grand remain coalition, but it seems very very unlikely from this point in time.

    To be honest, I'm not sure any polls are worth shit these days.

    Is there any point in a remain now that the deal is practically struck? :(

    Yes. Even if Boris's deal goes through it doesn't actually agree very much and there's still a possibility of no deal at the end of next year if the transition negotiations go as poorly as they are likely to. If some sort of Remain coalition were to win the next election we could have a much closer relationship with the EU, likely involving remaining in on rejoining a Customs Union, even if we've already left the EU.

    Oh right! I’ve kind of forgotten that this deal just cover the exit/transition.

    The vote on the WAB wasn't even a vote that we were happy with the deal, it was to move it to the next stage. The reason it got through is people want to amend it for various gains, such as to change some of the terrible terms and to attach a peoples vote onto it.

    I honestly don't see this getting sorted by January either. I don't see any party getting a working majority.
