Madrid Assembly votes to ban Catalan/Basque pro-independence parties

I don’t think fascism worked out very well for them last time.

The Electoral Commission ought to be having a look at these fellas

Finally an admission.

"Leaflets were posted through doors in Putney which wrongly credited trusted polling firm YouGov for data suggesting the party was neck-and-neck with the Tories. The projections actually came from a company that is not a member of the British Polling Council and uses national polls to forecast local voter intention."

After lots of heel digging from Swinson, Berger et al. Quite a remarkable campaign so far from those who are happy to point out the voter manipulation of VoteLeave/Leave.EU during the referendum.

Regardless of whether or not we leave the EU.

That's the ticket.

This is real journalism. It's a shame the leading outlets didn't have the balls to publish it.
EU to offer extension until Feb 2020

Blue Passports
at 11:18 23 Mar 2019

There's a solution for anybody concerned they won't be able to get their blue passport due to the current Brexit debacle. The Daily Express is offering free imitation holders in protest:

Question for Mr. Bloom and others - If you all take them up on their offer, will it appease you enough for us to stop the whole leaving thing and everybody wins?

Prophecy of Zed
at 09:12 22 Mar 2019

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).

Zed has absorbed too much Brexit.

I’m sitting on my sofa rocking backwards and forwards. My left eye is twitching.
at 07:00 20 Mar 2019

Absolute nonsense. This is simply a result of the likes of Leadsom and Fox threatening to resign at cabinet yesterday if she requested a long extension. May is a morally reprehensible disaster who’s only purpose is to save face within her party.

This is not a plan.

Bercow says no.

He's making a statement now in his typical long-winded fashion. Government benches didn't seem to know he was going to do this and are in disbelief.

Remarkable stuff.

EDIT: Essentially he's said he won't allow them to bring back the same deal back for another vote. Something would need to change.

Meaningful Edit 2: Bercow clarifies to JRM that it could be brought back in a new parliamentary session. Make of that what you will.

I don't recall them offering Mr. Corbyn the same patience and tolerance back when it was even clearer it would be rejected HoC.
No Deal
at 10:52 14 Mar 2019

We have a government and a Prime Minister who last night after all the talk about national interest, shamelessly voted for us to leave without a deal.

A government and a Prime Minister that put forward a motion to reject no deal, but keep it on the table at the same time. An opposition amendment (BuT We hAvE nO oPpOsItiOn ZeD) forces it into becoming an exclusive rejection of no deal at any point, only for the government to whip against it's own motion and attempt to force no deal.

Our government and Prime Minister whipped against their own motion in order to defeat both their deal and their own motion, and were still defeated. I'm not sure which metaphor is more fitting for the disaster this has turned into - May losing her voice and croaking out the same delusional fantasies, or the government defeating themselves as they attempt to let go of the hand grenade they've been holding.

If you think things are bad now, imagine what chaos with Ed Miliband would have looked like.

Resignations incoming...
