    Default Bercow blocks the Government

    He says he won't allow a MV3 unless the deal is substantially changed.

    He also said he won't allow a motion enabling a MV3.

    And he would block any attempts to circumvent him.

    Remainers: Can we have another referendum?
    Brexidiots NO that's betrayal of the people who have clearly voted to leave and we will hit you with our Zimmerframes if you are going to allow it

    May: Can I have a second vote on my withdrawal agreement despite it was defeated with the highest vote against a sitting government ever
    Everybody: OK
    May can I have a 3d vote despite being defeated twice
    Bercow: No effing way unless you change it
    May: can I have a 3d vote despite you said no and despite it was shot down twice
    Bercow: WTF did I tell you? no

    I look forward to seeing Bercrow forcibly and publically dragged from his chair and replaced by one of his deputies. Long live democracy.

    I reckon he'll allow the deal to be voted on after the second lot of votes on Monday, as this will enable amendments to be put down.
    I'm alright Jack

    Totally. Their mantra was 'take back control' & 'We want democracy' and then they sheit all over it. They should be thrown in jail.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Only problem with that is it will require going back to the EU and asking for an extension beyond April 12 and changing the date in UK law again.

    Her deal needs to be passed this week for the May extension date to take effect immediately.

    It does, but it’s sort of ambiguous on the reason for any extension past April 12:

    The European Council agrees to an extension until 22 May 2019, provided the Withdrawal Agreement is approved by the House of Commons next week. If the Withdrawal Agreement is not approved by the House of Commons next week, the European Council agrees to an extension until 12 April 2019 and expects the United Kingdom to indicate a way forward before this date for consideration by the European Council.
    If the “indication of a way forward” by April 12 is the approval of the WA somewhere between Mar 29 and Apr 12, this may be sufficient for the EU to approve a separate extension to cover the period required for the supporting U.K. legislation to be put into place.

    Don't get me wrong, if she was somehow to get her deal approved next week then I find it hard to believe the EU wouldn't approve a further extension to 22 May, but my point was it wouldn't be automatic. We would have to request it, they would have to accept it and I believe due to the way yesterday's SI was worded, we'd need to pass another SI to change domestic legislation again.
