Prophecy of Zed 09:12 - Mar 22 with 1641 viewsZedRodgers

Option 1:

May's deal isn't brought back. People (including the press for some reason) seem to be pretending the Bercow thing didn't happen.

12th April approaches. HoC start arguing about EU elections and a further extension, but the house fails in attempting to bring the length of the potential further extension request out of May's hands and in parliament's control.

Revocation gains traction. W/C 8th April becomes a stare down between no deal or revocation due to May's refusal to face reality with the longer extension (making it too conditional or centring it around her deal). The 450 MPs who voted to remain do away with their 'respect the result of the referendum' when faced with the question of revoke or no deal. The petition by this point has reached many millions and has given those 450 MPs the confidence to go with it.

HoC votes to revoke Article 50. A night of celebration and bitterness. Deranged gloating and complaining by people on both sides. May resigns after unmitigated failure at every promise she made. General Election.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Option 2:

May's deal is brought back. Either via a meaningful (lol) tweak to the WA or through some kind of parliamentary decision to go against the convention Bercow set out. Deal is either voted down or amended to include a people's vote.

If voted down, see second paragraph of Option 1.

If amended to include people's vote, the nation choose to remain over May's deal. The same deranged gloating and complaining follows.

Disclaimer: Two weeks ago, I would not have expected or even wanted Brexit to be abruptly cancelled in a way which opened a can of worms. The course that May has taken and the absolute state of her speech has resulted in a change in the wind. The can of worms is now a justifiable consequence - A can that both a majority of the public and HoC are prepared to open (in my opinion).

Good reading, ta.

One question I have is does she have to stick to the extension at all, especially if she judges she'll be forced out? Is the law that we leave on the 29th going to be changed basically?

Has anyone ever looked at their own postings for last day or so? Oh my... so sorry.

I can't see brexit being revoked without a second referendum.

If the HoC revoke it without going back to the people there will be too many people up in arms. There will be disorder.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

Parliament has to change the law before next Friday, and it has to receive royal assent, otherwise the default position is we leave the EU at 11pm one week today.

Sorry giant_ullaa, I was mowing my lawn.

In reality it would just need to go through the Commons and Lords. It almost certainly would.

Royal assent is the final stage of the process but that hasn't blocked anything for about 300 years.

The ball would be in Mr. Bercow's court on that. Unclear at the moment, but I would guess that the date being slightly different would not change the substance of it enough for him to allow it.

I still think we're leaving, although it looks unlikely right now I still think the threat of a long delay or remaining will get the DUP and ERG onside. May will agree to stand down once we've left in May so a new leader can take us through negotiations. The DUP will be given a nice, fat brown envelope to ease things along.

The tide will have turned by then. The failure will no longer be able to be masked as betrayal. HoC will revoke over leaving without a deal. It's almost a certainty.

I'm talking about a scenario where a second referendum is not possible due to the time remaining before 12th April - With a longer extension EU elections not agreed upon. A second referendum doesn't come into it at that point. It's no deal or revoke. They will revoke.

Of course there is the possibility for an extension beyond May 22nd that doesn't require us to take part in the EU elections. We would simply have to request to not take part in the elections, but promise to host a 'catch-up' election if we decide to remain. I didn't set this out in my prophecy but it is is entirely possible. Would just need EU member states approval. Seems more unlikely than likely, hence it's omission from my prophecy.

Not necessarily. The ERG and DUP equate to 80 votes. That would just about sway it in May's favour as things stand but there are many other remainer-at-heart MPs who would ditch the 'respect the result of the referendum' thing when faced with no deal or revoke. It's a 400/200 split at the least. We have reached the point where the threat of no deal is more likely to result in revocation than accepting May's deal. The affront of her speech blaming the very people that she needs will only have turned the tide against her further.

Yes Geoff there could be some disorder.

The Leave voters I know simply don't care anymore and they would argue in the pubs and on social media but not "take to the streets".

And Zed this is a question not a pushback. Does your figures include Labour MPs who will vote in favour of leaving? There are a lot in constituencies who voted leave, not sure they will vote for revoke.

I fear that it could give nutjobs like that fellow who shot Jo Cox the sense of entitlement that would lead to similar acts.

There might not be large scale disorder, but I fear there could be some serious trouble.

We all know there's always one - and that one could become headline news for a day so I wouldn't rule it out but I don't see mass disorder that would require Martial Law, the army on the streets or anything like that.

A remain-leaning MP was attacked in the street yesterday as a direct result of our government's approach to this. As you have pointed out, a life has already been lost. Can it get much worse than somebody being murdered?

I don't understand how you can acknowledge that somebody has already been killed but at the same suggest that there 'could be' serious trouble to come.

Putting this whole episode behind us would detoxify this atmosphere, not make it worse.

Sorry Zed, I don't get this point:

"I don't understand how you can acknowledge that somebody has already been killed but at the same suggest that there 'could be' serious trouble to come"

What don't you understand? That there has been a murder in the past related to this only makes it more likely that there will be similar in the future.

Why can't I acknowledge the murder and expect serious trouble in the future? The idea that I can't makes no sense.

I'm not saying something awful is beyond the realms of possibility, but I don't think it's right to expect it. It gives me an unnerving sense of it being spoken into existence.

It just seems to me that the fear of the level of toxicity increasing if we remain undermines the extremity we have already seen of an MP being murdered.

Moving on from Brexit in one way or another should not bring fear of that being repeated. It should relieve us from it.

The seats the UK are giving up in the EP have been allocated to other countries. EP need to know if we are holding elections or not. We cannot catch up later.
