1:19 pm today was the exact mid point from when the result that the Great British public had decided to leave the EU and the time 11pm March 29th 2019 that Democracy will be delivered.

Happy days.

It changes nothing.

With or without a deal, we leave 29th March.


J.R.M confirmed this. HOWEVER I have confidence in these worms bypassing that with ease.

Doesn't Article 50 work both ways though - after activating, two years to get withdrawal agreement. So wouldn't the 29th March date apply to both parties, ie EU can enforce leaving with no deal?


From Article 50.

“The Treaties shall cease to apply to the State in question from the date of entry into force of the withdrawal agreement or, failing that, two years after the notification referred to in paragraph 2, unless the European Council, in agreement with the Member State concerned, unanimously decides to extend this period.”

The UK can withdraw article 50 but the EU would need to agree an extension to Article 50.

So if EU refuse an extension then it's no deal on 29th March, correct?

The UK could withdraw article 50.

And you don't think they won't? I'm pretty sure that was offered last year. Wish I could find the statement.
Anyway...it matters not to me. Tonight democracy died...along with my vote.

EU won't want a long extension though.

Anti EU sentiment is increasing across Europe. MEP elections upcoming - not in EU's interests to prolong into that election period.

Given parliament won't agree on anything prior to March 29th, don't see anything having changed other than posturing.

I think the EU will but they do have the option. Interesting to see EU politicians commenting more freely today.

Oooooh Ken Clarke stirring up the feminists by referring to "Women's Institute" there.

I almost expected him to end up being chased around the HoC by scantily clad female MPs, Benny Hill style.

EU view is it's not enough to just say "can't have no deal", needs to agree to a deal.

So another vote on May's deal then? An absolute "take it or leave it"?

Eh, either way May is toast as are quite a few MPs.

Those who voted for Article 50 knowing full well "no deal" was default only to then try to prevent "no deal" will be viewed as not exactly trustworthy.

Tomorrow’s motion.

The government motion tabled for tomorrow sets next Wednesday as the deadline for MPs to pass a Brexit deal. It says, if a deal is passed by then, the government will seek an extension of article 50 until 30 June. But if the deal is not passed by then, then the government will need a longer extension, requiring the UK to take part in European elections, the motion says.

So whatever happens now we won’t leave on 29 March. Reset the countdown, pikey boy.

IF a deal is passed. That lot couldn't agree on which direction the sun rises from.

Parliament agree a "deal"? Errm, you need two parties to agree a deal and EU ain't involved. Parliament agree a deal EU would turn their noses up at? No point with any extension, we leave anyway.

EU would have to agree a longer extension which I don't see happening.

So we may well leave with no deal on 29th March.

Why would Berscow allow her deal to come back a third time...?
Its lost by over 100 votes both times.
Dead as a dead parrot.
Hello ?

‘no deal’ is also dead after tonight.
Gone.

Therefore the old Magic Grampa has his chance to create a new deal that commands the support of the whole house - or we ask for extension based on a GE or People’s Vote.

Who knows ?

Now lets sit back and watch the Tory cabinet fall apart. Maybe tonight.

Strong indications that the Speaker won’t. Not unless there are substantial changes, which there won’t be.

With 75 per cent of MPs remainers I feel the only thing they are likely to agree on is a route that leads toward a second vote.

Jesus Bluey. The deal on offer will be the same one as has already been offered twice. The EU has already agreed it. If parliament agrees that deal the extension will be till 30 June. If it doesn’t, the extension will be longer.

Worth remembering that the motion is amendable so is unlikely to remain as is. But government discipline has broken down entirely now.

No. We won’t.


We may well.

EU have already said they will only approve a short extension if there's a deal there.

Parliament can't just turn round and say "we want free unicorns, hamsters et al" and EU then say "yeah, have a few more weeks and we'll sort it".

EU won't want a long extension given the MEP elections where anti=EU sentiment across Europe could well have an impact.

As it stands, legally nothing has changed.

All that's happened is Cooper has jumped ahead of Starmer in positioning herself to take over once Corbyn goes, forgetting female Labour candidates always end up with the lowest number of votes.
