It’s Got to Be a No Deal Brexit on 29th March

After yet another humiliating defeat for prime minister Theresa May this evening, May should be toast by tomorrow morning.

This still leaves two remaining crucial votes, tomorrow, Wednesday, for a ‘hard’/no deal Brexit on 29th March, or else the vote on Thursday for an extension of the Article 50 deadline.

This really is a no-brainer, because although the majority of MPs are Remainers, the majority of people who vote for these MPs are Brexiteers. If MPs vote for an extension of the deadline it’s just getting back on the merry-go-round. If the MPs don’t vote for a hard Brexit tomorrow, in all likelihood this will happen…

Let’s see how it all pans out. In the meantime, because I haven’t featured any music on here for a while, here’s something to perhaps calm your nerves.

    Rob, I’m not sure how this is going to turn out. It’s such a mess that it makes me suspicious that this may all be a ruse – but, even then, I’m not sure who is in control or will benefit. That said, the common people will continue to be shafted whatever the outcome.

      John, I agree that it’s all a right mess, whether people are Remainers or Brexiteers.

      The yay or nay vote this evening on a hard Brexit is an ‘indicative’ vote. It’s not legally binding and she who is still amazingly prime minister can ignore the result of the vote is she wants to.

      What is legally binding is that the UK exits the European Union on 29th March. That’s the default position. To overturn this there will have to be a ‘meaningful’ vote sometime in the next few weeks. That said, there are now noises from the EU saying that they won’t allow an extension of the Article 50 deadline.

      It’s enough to make your head hurt!

    Geoffry Cox was good, he said his assessment of the legal situation had not changed, the E.U. still had the whip hand over the U.K. on May’s “Deal”
    he really shafted her.
    I can’t see Mrs.May last much past Easter?

      Freddy, I’ve been saying for months now that I can’t see Theresa May lasting until next Week, but she does! purely because, in my opinion, the Establishment are terrified of a Corbyn government.

      With the voting this evening we are now looking at an extension to the Article 50 deadline of 29th March. For this to happen there still has to be a ‘meaningful’ vote for it in Parliament sometime in the next two weeks. However, whatever way Parliament votes, as I understand it the remaining EU 27 countries still have to vote unanimously for an extension. With Italy, Hungary and Poland in the voting mix this might not be likely, and so at the moment my money is still on a no deal Brexit on 29th March.

      The EU is coming apart at the seams. It’s not just Britain.

    After tonight’s votes (Amendments on Amendments, etc) the bookies have Corbyn a short head above Boris to be the next prime minister…

    We certainly live in interesting times…

    Yellow vest protests wreak havoc on French economy

    This is now three months old.
    So how has the Yellow Vest movement changed the French Economy?
    I see that horrible president of the rich is still lording it over you all.

    British lawmakers vote in favour of delaying Brexit
    Lawmakers approved by 412 votes to 202 a motion setting out the option to ask the EU for a short delay

    What these filth do not understand is they will be torn apart in the streets if they stop Brexit.

  6. JOML says:

    Looks like the Tories want a ‘no deal’ Brexit but don’t have the balls to openly campaign for it – they want to blame the EU so that they can hide from any negative consequences, while reaping the personal positives for the wealthy.

    Brexit ‘Leave Means Leave’ march sets off from Sunderland

    A 14-day protest march organised against a perceived Brexit “betrayal” and led by Nigel Farage is under way.

    The first leg, organised by the Leave Means Leave campaign, set off from Sunderland and concludes in Hartlepool.

    Mr Farage said: “If politicians think they can walk all over us, then we’re going to march back and tell them they can’t.”

    If these sharks steal Brexit from the honest hard working folk of the United Kingdom, Democracy will be left in tatters
