Turns out the House of Commons ain't ready either.

At least they have now made it crystal clear that they don’t want to leave with or without a deal.

I've also wondered if it meant that they accepted May's deal (no-no-deal = yes-deal?).
What's next:
I) May finally pushes through her deal
II) She ignores them and
a) another vote of no confidence
b) no-deal Brexit
III) They change the law and block no-deal or the whole Brexit?

No, they apparently want the other deal. You know, the good one.

I was looking at BBC news after dinner and had the same traumatic experience. I kept reading the text over and over again..Eventually I just dozed off. But I do that anyways.

I wonder how they handle this up in Morpeth?

They are kind of cute when they pretend that it's their choice how long to extend the inevitable...

Robert Shrimsley makes an amusing point in the FT this morning, imagining the Commons having voted to rule out death. Quoting the head of the Mortality Research Group: “I think when Death sees the unity within the Conservative party around eternal life, he will be forced to come back to the table.”

A delay of 1 to 2 years with 30% added for slippage sounds reasonable. It can now be run as a project.

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. (From the Salmon of Doubt)
