    More than that, the programme motion also passed for accelerated progress through a Committee of the whole House. All done on 8th Feb and across to the Lords in good time If you're expecting a rebellion on the A50 bill, you're likely to be disappointed. Even the amendment on a so-called "meaningful" vote on the final deal is a long-shot. Essentially, it's done for now. The pushback won't come until the Great Repeal Bill.

    i don't believe in catastrophe. Just dull stagnation and 70s like poor public services, inflation, dirty streets etc.
    Or do you expect the debt situation will magically resolve itself?
    Of course I may be very wrong, but in all the months we've talked about this no one has come with any idea how we're going to thrive in the brave new world.

    Hard Brexit now!

    No not really, I hope they take pity on you, as I hope we accept those already here (as long as they don't commit crime) and let them stay. For me the whole EU thing was never about migration, it was about corruption, and the EU have excelled themselves on that score.

    PS - loved the way you completely ducked the point. Surprised? Not. Even. Almost.

    I think the phrase is if you do what you have always done you will get what you have always got.

    The EU was not what we wanted.

    That's because the EU is not a sales house. It is a partnership, team, everyone contributes for mutual benefit. Unfortunately for years the UK was happy to sit on the sides lines complaining from the dugout rather than becoming involved.

    What the UK wants no longer exists in todays world. The world is much smaller. There's now a greater need for humans to be working together than further apart. Much greater.
    “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.”

    Yes indeed we should all work together for the glory of the Union.

    Where have I heard that before?

    Them people... you know the ones that believe climate change stops at the border waiting for its passport to be stamped. The same people that believe international tax evasion by large conglomerates is a country sized issue. The same people who believe isolation is the way to solve the problems humanity faces on a global scale.

    Them people...

    According to the Left, he's not been incompetent... they claim he's made loads of changes to make the nation far more right-wing

    So now the MP's have swallowed the frog to satisfy the hallowed referendum result, let the rebellion commence:
