Corbyn has tabled a motion of no confidence and he:
says the government should accept that the UK will stay in the customs union for good, that a no-deal Brexit is not an option and that the rights of EU nationals will be accepted.
I used to be afew. I'm still not many.
In which case someone should remind him a new referendum becomes official labour policy.
Yvette Cooper (Lab) has already asked the speaker how A50 could be extended. I think we can assume she knows, so the question was for public consumption only.
Bottom line is that if there's a motion to extend A50 it's very likely to pass - maybe not conclusively, but certainly as a means of avoiding No Deal.
We could then be in the interesting position of May clinging on to power, but being forced to cancel Brexit because of a referendum she didn't want.
Absolutely terrible. Dear oh dear.
She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre
With such a major defeat, PM Theresa May has lost all legitimacy as a leader of Great Britain. She can place a call to Brussels, no one will pick up the phone.
London is left in chaos.
PM May will survive the no confidence vote because the Tories want to remain [yes!] in power. Anything but Corbyn ...
PM Theresa May must stand down. The EU will not renegotiate with anyone without a clear mandate from UK Parliament. None is forthcoming. Time HAS run out, to delay the March 29 deadline is pointless. It's done, it's over.
Too bad no one in Westminster realizes what has just passed. Truly, the British live isolated on an island. A failed integration within mainland Europe.
Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
