Summer 2018 Brexit Thread - Still doomed, but in slightly warmer weather


#241

It’s fucked. Rebels have been bought off


#242

I liked the government’s first attempt to buy them off. “I can assure you we can have a chat tomorrow if you’re willing to vote with me.”


#243

#244

Looks like the Grieve amendment has been mostly acceded to. Wow. Which is good news on the face of it (obvs if you ignore Brexit is awful) but these things have a habit of blowing back in mysterious ways.

Leadership contest? DD to walk?


#245

summary: i don’t understand what i’m reading online


#246

probably doesn’t need saying but

THIS IS ALL SUCH A MESS


#247

Have you seen anywhere what the government have promised, or is it just the vague “concessions” that I’ve seen banded about?


#248

I know we’re supposed to be all about the big tent today, but I really, really want pricks like this out of the party.


#249

Not to mention Kate Hoey, ffs Vauxhall the one place where voting for the Lib Dems last year would have been better and you all voted for her anyway!


#250

He’s the MP for my neighbouring borough and just… ugh. Although I’d still rather have him than the ultra-Tory I’ve got


#251

Ha I went to same one I think. Was absolutely awful. Worst presentation I’ve ever been too.


#252

one of the tories said a good thing about how he was rebelling because this is a situation similar to the death penalty, like just cos loads of people want it doesn’t mean we should cave etc.


#253

That’s the guy who quit this morning


#254

Not yet just hearsay on the ol twitter


#255

Yeah Tim Farron’s Liberal Democrats were definitely a party the residents of Vauxhall could get behind…


#256

#257

What a big pile of shite

Can the Lords send it back again or is that it?


#258

It’s got to go back through the Lords, yes, which is where the govt will put forward another amendment, as negotiated today.


#259

Or not if they don’t want to


#260

Yes. Should have said " the govt said they will"
