Gov to publish legal advice after being found in contempt of Parliament.
Grieve amendment passed, it's similar to what he wanted earlier in the year, but backed down when May said it would affect her negotiations. Reported that Damian Green and Michael Fallon voted for it....et tu Brute!
I do like it when Parliament takes back control...

TM: No it didnít
Me: yet it did
TM: no it didnít, the British Public clearly voted to leave the European union
Me: The referendum showed that the public were split between those that wanted to stay and those that wantít to leave
TM: no it didnít

TM: no it doesnít
Me: You are just taking up a contradictory position
TM: No I am not
Me: a debate is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes.
TM: no it isnít

It was part of a Channel 4 news piece. As it happened:
[youtu.be]

How could any grown up adult be naive enough to believe a politician promises?

The issues around Britain's position in the EU as opposed to the EEC have been discussed over and over and over again in the last thirty years. This was the issue that led to the ousting of Mrs. Thatcher in 1990. In this snippet of a commons debate from Oct. 1990 you can hear all the issues [www.youtube.com]

Given the longevity of this issue in British politics it is absurd to claim that rational people would have made their decision based solely on the few months of the campaign. It is equally absurd that given the length of time that some politicians have been agitating for the UK to leave the EU none of them would have worked out a credible plan to do so.

Which bit are you not sure to believe? Someone else on twitter posted a picture of the exchange and it looked like there was a camera crew there.

If you havenít seen the footage it does sound pretty fanciful - the idea that someone voted Leave to help the NHS and lost his marriage because of the result. Exactly the kind of sob story that makes the pro-EU position look callous.

The bit I find hard to believe is that someone like a consuslrant genuinely thought the NHS would see more money and wouldnít be sold down the river to American private healthcare.

I hadn't seen it - now I have and I still find it difficult.

Never mind why Campbell and Mogg were in a cafe together in the first place (but if it was a news interview that explains that)

Wow look at this [twitter.com] this must change everything.

For those who like some original thought. The great iron curtain collapsed in months as did the Soviet Union a couple of years later. They didn't take long to sort out new treaties, trade deals etc and look where that left us in terms of world peace and a move away from right wing nationalism (think Slovakia, Belorus, the former East Germany) and wealth distribution. Although if we want strong and stable (and economically successful) think China. Happy to hear some counter arguments, although I am sure that there is relevant article on Twitter.

Really not sure what your point is with that post?

messageRe: Brexit View
Posted by malumbu December 06, 09:28PM

Oh relating to the problems in delivering a rushed deal could be compared big alliances/federations breaking up quickly in 89 - 91 with mixed results. The China stuff was just a pop at TM for all the strong and stable stuff. There has been a risk in right wing nationalism in many of the former Soviet States/Iron Curtain and it feels that we are risking going the same way here. Also worried that a populist and confrontational agenda in France is having results. Although I would argue that a left wing anarcho bit of direct action (poll tax riots) was of course justifiable. Might be all total bollox and happy to be shot down, either in a five minute debate or the whole half hour.

Not sure if there are parallels with the arab spring and other interventions with no end game.

There will be three Government oral statements in the @HouseofCommons today:

1 - Theresa May: Exiting the EU
2 - Andrea Leadsom: Business Statement
3 - Stephen Barclay: EU Exit - Article 50


No. 3 could be the biggie, despite the ECJ today ruling that A50 can be unilaterally revoked, Gov more likely to ask to extend A50 to avoid crashing out with no deal. If it's for that, then based on past statements, EU unlikely to allow extension unless there is a very good reason, i.e. a GE or another referendum, not for more negotiating time...

Posted by keano77 December 10, 12:54PM

If they extend A50 doesnít that mean it canít be revoked unilaterally?

messageRe: Brexit View
Posted by diable rouge December 10, 01:17PM

Not according to legal whiz DAG...

By confirming that (1) unilateral revocation continues with any extension, (2) right ends when WA concluded, and (3) if revoked UK membership of EU continues as before...

....this could not be a more helpful judgment for Remainers.

If part of the agreement to extend A50 provides that it cannot in future be unilaterally revoked, then yes. Otherwise it can be revoked unilaterally.

Good to see the Omni-shambles which is the PM, has chosen to try to save her own neck in favour of getting a clear message from Parliament. Had she been battered in the vote (which was inevitable) then she (or the next PM) could have taken the result to the EU to show that no matter what she thinks about her insane 'compromise' deal, it will never get past Parliament. Instead, having brazenly ignored the obvious for several days, she has decided to pull the vote to save herself. Par for the course though, I suppose.
