Disaster Brexit: "Technical terms" agreed - Chequers minus, as feared, or Brexit in name only.

Important enough for a separate post:
May won the vote
200 For
117 Against
This means that:
1. The Party can't do this again for another year
2. Her leadership is greatly wounded
3. She nowhere near has a majority in Parliament for anything
4. Nothing has changed about the deal, in fact now it's even harder to get it through Parliament

I’ve been getting mixed signals on this, but if you guys get a soft-Brexit are you going to be stuck with Article 13?
Probably. If the withdrawal agreement goes through we'll be within the ambit of all current EU legislation until the end of the transition period.

Aww, I was hoping they'd squash her like an overripe turnip.

Guess we're all going to be in the gulag this time next year, courtesy of the bearded one...

Not sure about whether Compo would do it but his mate John McDonnell (the one with the eyes of an unsuccessful rapist) definitely would.

Also, Dianne Flabbott on the government benches? Shudder.

I can remember someone somewhere said Corbyn was comparatively harmless but when they looked at McDonnell they could hear the clang of gulag gates behind them.

Or something to that effect. It was awhile back shortly after they tried to get rid of Corbyn and failed horribly.

One of the commentators on ConHome made an interesting point. 163 MPs are on the government payroll and need to vote for May. So she only picked up three votes in favour up against 117 against. And keeping her in power means her deal will be voted on in parliament where it will be defeated. And then Labour will call a confidence vote.

Yeah that's the same line being touted by JRM but surely if people felt so strongly against May they would resign their position. Plus it was a secret ballot so people didn't have the pressure of people knowing how they voted.

These threats of a Corbyn government are so hollow. A GE would have to take place for that to happen so if they already feel like they would lose that then they are totally fucked.

I'm probably one of the only ones here who isn't scared of a Corbyn government. Lived with a Tory gov for 8 years and they've achieved fuck all in that time. Least with Corbyn we could nationalise the rails and invest in the infrastructure of the country.
You're not the only one. I'll happily admit that I'm wanting a Corbyn government, as I'm wanting an alternative to Tory austerity.

What's funny is there's already semi-re-nationalisation going on of the railways on the quiet in the background. Even then, Cobyn's re-nationalisation scheme isn't a "Pass the law and make the companies go fuck themselves." it's literally just "Wait till their contracts run out and dump it in a government mandated and backed company."

Certain TOCs might even survive, certainly the railfreight companies and highly popular ones such as Chiltern have shown where its better in private hands.

TBH not keeping some sort of British Rail to compete as its own arms length company was always the weirdest concept missing from the UK Rail network.

She's a lame duck at this junction. 1/3rd of her MPs wanted her gone, the DUP are likely pulling support, and everyone else in the House will vote against her. Forgetting Brexit for a moment, how on earth does she expect to pass ANY legislation? Even if the Chief Whip calls a 3 line whip, that won't mean much if 1/4th or 1/3rd decide not to follow.

She's also said that she's not going to run as PM for the next election, but has not told people when she will step down before 2021. Assuming that the House doesn't call a vote of no confidence (which will trigger a GE, certainly won by Labour), we may be stuck with this dumb bitch for many years, unable to pass any legislation.

She embodies the worst parts of Margaret Thatcher - The unbending will to change her mind, the unwillingness to listen to her colleagues when they tell her this is a shit idea, and stacking her cabinet with yes men. Difference, Thatcher got shit done before she got the boot, this bitch has done sweet fuck all during her premiership. One of the worst PMs we have had in a while, and thats saying a lot, given the shower of shit we had before.

Let's just remember her for the Lancaster House speech. In fact if she'd done what she said then rather than the exact opposite she'd have been a great PM.
