Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
The House of Commons voted against a No Deal.  Meaningless unless the Lords agree, IIRC.

Today they voted against new elections.  NO turkeys will be harmed in the coming months.

They have exactly one scheduled day left - tomorrow - and then they go on vacation until May 9th when they will be prorogued.  

If this is some kind of a cunning plan it's waaaaaaaaaaaaaay outside my pay grade.

October 9 I presume you mean. But what happens to the 14 day clock while Parliament is on vacation? Can Parliament vote to extend the current session into next week? Aside from court injunctions, can a majority of Parliament send a delegation to the Queen requesting the prorogation be reascended?

So many questions.
