So, the Parliament know what they don't want, but do they know what they want (apart from a voting system convenient for very pregnant women)?

In the slightest chance that your question was not rhetorical, no. Parliament doesn't know what it wants.  If you mix a representative democracy with a 
direct democracy no one quite knows what their job is anymore.  Like Keynes' beauty contest writ large.
I vote remain, but my constituency wanted leave, but my party wants XXXX, but the polls for the whole country want YYYY . What should i do?
However this whole farce ends up, one of the results is that the "mother of Parliaments" description will be worthy of the subject line of this thread.

Corbyn wants earlier erection before their MPs go into Labour, Johnson (or rather what's his 20 years younger girlfriend left of him) wants a new deal negotiated with the EU in two months, ... - that's all I understood.

Regardless whether you're happy or not with today's result, it's interesting to see the Parliament reasserting its power. I'd rather see the MPs to make a decision on Brexit than unelected millionaire "friends of the people" like Gina Miller.

@Collector I made some typos, sorry. Labour are playing on snap election, the Brexit matter is secondary for them. One of their MPs postponed C-section to attend the voting on a wheelchair. The most prominent part of the post-voting discussion was about how inconvenient it was to her.

AFAIK, she's not a millionaire. She just married one.

No, thanks. Just because I live in London, it doesn't mean that I'm English.

There is a related joke where the punch line is "evely molning". But I don't think that applies to Corbyn.

i started to master the Chi now, doubt any of you will get close without falling, Chuch is judo master and loves to fall, forward and backward, possibly sideways, not sure about K.
All strength comes from hara (stomach) ) @0.25. The Japanese even believe that the brain starts there. But you know all that.

I started yoga but stopped. On top of 3 times per week judo it is just too much.
