Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A new law designed to stop the government forcing through a no-deal has reached the statute book.

The granting of royal assent for the legislation was announced by the Lord Speaker in the House of Lords, ahead of the suspension or prorogation of parliament.

The new Act requires a delay to Brexit beyond October 31 unless a divorce deal is approved or parliament agrees to leaving the EU without one by October 19.

In other news, Bercow has announced he will quit as Speaker on October 31st. 4/5 on favourite to replace him is Labour MP Lindsay Hoyle.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
