Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

A request for information. Did Boris get something passed in parliament yesterday? And if so, what?

I know UK can't leave with a deal until the EP has voted on it, so extension or crash out it still is, but what did parliament approve?

Follow the link in my comment above for a good discussion.

Takeaway: Johnson didn't get much. The legislation is stalled.

ET User Guide
What are comment ratings and how should I use them?
...

2 is rarely used. It may be used as a warning for comments that are unnecessarily aggressive, personal or disruptive in their tone.

1 is used to rate a comment "trollish", i.e. appears calculated to provoke angry reactions, is grossly aggressive or insulting, or really inappropriate. Even more rarely used than 2.

"Down" ratings should never be used to indicate that you disagree with the comment.
