Apparently it's up to Bercow what happens next. So yeah, I think we can assume Parliament is coming back.

 

The UK is just hilarious at the moment :lol:

 

I'm  not laughing. We are on the verge of constitutional melt down now. What happens next is critical.

Ah come on man, the drama is enjoyable. Politics has never been this engaging in living memory. It's like a soap opera - lies, cheating, breaking the law, expulsions, betrayals, Johnson battering his partner - all we need now is for some kind of forbidden 'cross the aisle' love affair between JRM and Thornberry and it'd have everything :D

It’s like you’re enjoying seeing the country meltdown. You may as well get behind no deal and get some popcorn in.

The country will be fine - the journalists will get excited about it but some semblance of normality will have returned by tomorrow and we'll get back to fighting over Brexit again. Boris has already said he won't resign, I don't see anything hugely damaging taking place from Parliament agreeing to sit again.

You can at least enjoy the fact that this one went the right way man. If it had gone the other way we would have been a LOT worse off.

The whole saga is putting businesses in limbo across the whole country. If we are having another vote, let’s just have it.. because reality is, if we had left without interference we could have been a year or two into fixing the mess and recovering by now. And businesses would know where they stand. Wish they would just all agree a way forward and get on with it, remain or leave.

brexiters aren't going to be happy with gina!

 

Someone - maybe her, maybe another "enemy of the people" - is going to get the Jo Cox treatment before long, and we'll all shrug it off and carry on as if everything's fine. :dunno:

It's the Tories who stopped us leaving in March, not everyone else. The diehard Leavers, in fact. Remember, May had a majority back then, the opposition votes were meaningless if she could command the full support of her party.

 

But yes, the limbo isn't helpful - and I'd put a second vote before any and all other considerations.

I’m not discussing who is to blame. They all are. I’m just pointing out it’s not that funny or entertaining. and should be done and dusted by now.

He should stay neutral, it's better for the country that way.

 

Corbyn has already started failing to capitalise on this IMO by having the weakest statement imaginable in response to it. "Johnson should consider his position". I think he could have done with a bit more passion in that one.

 

I share everyone's certainty that he will fail to make this stick.

True enough. I've been watching too much Rise of the Nazis. This is just like that albeit with Benny Hill music on in the background. :D

The situation in a wider sense isn't, but watching Johnson hauled over hot coals for all of his sins is rather enjoyable. He's a remainer who switched sides for political advantage.

 

I have no doubt in my mind that we're here because of the Tories, and in light of the fact that I may have to stomach Brexit, I'm going to enjoy watching them self destruct in the meantime.

 Stop passing the buck.
