Getting close to the vote lads.

Increasingly looking like the giver will survive.

Who wants to start taking bets that Corbyn is just gong to start calling these once a week if it does not pass?

May offers to meet with Corbyn and Corbyn puts a block in the way ... pillock !
Glad the government won but Labour smell blood and by the looks they are not going to let go.

I'm so pissed with Labour at the moment.

To be honest though I do think that the prospect of no-deal needs to be taken off the table.

Typical politicians, not calling a second referendum what is it, instead calling it a 'people's vote'

Say thank you for being made scared. There will be no other deal so the only option is to remain.

You do not take 'no deal' off the table as it is a negotiating chip and is actually what will happen IF no agreement is made.

If the house has still confidence in May. It's not rocket science.

Well there could be another deal if May agrees to some concessions around the UK remaining in the Common Market as well as a whole range of other possibilities.

and I respectfully disagree with you. i construe that as an attempt to either remain or the ceaseless push for a 2nd ref without finishing the primary 1st referendum legislation.

And thats fine, I understand your concern am not saying you're wrong, you're well entitled to your opinion.

I am just saying that in my view it would be prudent to make a strong declaration that the UK will only leave with a deal. I think that would offer up a lot more reassurance to Business, the markets and the rest of the world.

But I do agree with you that such a motion carries a risk that its used to stop-brexit.

"Some concessions"? Like accepting the fundamental concepts of the EU? Free movement of goods and people? Wasn't exactly that the reason why Brexiteers won?

Parliament is at total gridlock.

No-Deal will be a disaster, it will not be good.

A solution has to be made for the good of the British people.

If May is serious about cross-party talks then she needs to reach a compromise with the minority parties and come up with an alternative. That includes opening up talks regarding all possibilities.
