Re: Brexit Referendum

Just checking best odds for next leader:

Boris and Gove are both front runners, both about 5/1

Raab somewhere between 7/1 - 9/1

Then Hunt/Javid a little longer odds

If you want a punt, both Cameron and Farage are 200/1

If you want to spew money, Grayling is 250/1


(Ruth Davidson is 66/1, and I personally think she may well walk it if she was in the race, but she said she wouldn't not long ago).

I wasn't present at the talk so heard this all second hand.

Letwin point is really just a technical observation on how powerless May has become that an amendment forced the government to vote for it.

Re. Varadkar - we haven't heard much about Irish politics recently because of Brexit, so who knows what's happening behind the scenes there?

Re: Brexit Referendum

Bercow is supposedly neutral but he hates may for bulldozing/bypassing parliament at every opportunity and wants to inflict as much humiliation on her as he can. If you watched his responses to the votes he was almost giddy about the amendments he was going to allow to go forward in the coming days. It's not quite partisan its personal.

Re: Brexit Referendum

Well he does it in a very passive aggressive way. It's obvious to anyone reading between the lines but he's doing nothing against the letter or really the spirit of his position.

Re: Brexit Referendum

Jesus it's the house that doesn't want anything. They don't want the deal they don't want no deal now they don't even want the right to vote against all the things they don't want in the future.

Re: Brexit Referendum

The indicative voting process should have been from day 1 before we invoked article 50.

Re: Brexit Referendum

and a very wishful thinker.

So all amendments fail including withdrawing the one to stop Meaningful Vote 3 - this time it's the same.

Re: Brexit Referendum

They have to actually vote FOR something, right? Yesterday's vote against a no deal brexit was non binding and the default on March 29 is still a no deal exit?

Re: Brexit Referendum

If they're too cowardly to take the responsibility of indicative voting then it has to be may's deal. You had your chance to do better and you chose not to.

Re: Brexit Referendum

So a great day in parliament.

They've achieved agreeing to ask for an extension if May's deal passes by the 20th March

This was quite funny.

Following the votes, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn reiterated his support for a further referendum after earlier ordering his MPs not to vote for one.
