And so yet again the clueless Mrs May will bring the bill back to be voted down again in June,how many times do we have to go through this
Latest news/rumour is Labour might abstain which would see it pass. An abstention would lead to the bill getting a second reading, with the key vote effectively postponed until MPs voted on the amended bill at third reading. That means MP's could vote on amendments from a custom union to a second vote or whatever but it does mean Labour would be trying to craft its view of Brexit via amendments rather than through an agreement with the government on a deal.

EDIT: Now they are saying they won't be abstaining. Clear as mud as ever.
Dave the only thing clear is May will,if Bercow let’s her will try and push this bill through by hook or by crook

I think the bill is now a dead duck after today's events where she has agreed to set a date for her departure. There is no way on earth those wanting to replace her, which seem to be at least a dozen in number, will vote for her deal and the DUP definitely won't now as they will see the new leader as one who will deliver for them.

The trouble is of course whoever wins, it's Groundhog Day. The problems and issues that have dogged "the simplest deal in history" are still there and the parliamentary arithmetic is still the same.

Johnson has inevitably thrown his name in the ring already and if he wins I think you might see quite a few Tories defect to ChangeUK. They need another so called compromise candidate but I am not sure what one of those is given they will have to be a hard brexiter to stand a chance with the wider Tory membership. The only way they will get one is if there is no need to consult them as there wasn't with May.

Nandy is talking nonsense.
She quotes Peter Kelner who gave stats on the 2016 referendum. Which he did.
So why didn't she quote his latest figures?
They told us that due to the demographics with the older Leave voters dying and new young and Remain people joining the voting register the Leave majority has disappeared. It vanished on January 19th 2019 and from that date there is a Remain majority in the UK from the 2016 referendum. The gap in favour of Remain is widening each day by well over 1300 .

A poll also suggested Labour voters are now 80% Remain having risen from 66% as people have changed their mind. They might not have in Wigan but they have in Wales and plenty other places. The classic case was Sunderland where after Nissan decided not to build their latest car the area went from 60% Leave to 55% Remain. People there changed their mind.

Nandy is a high profile Remain MP in a Leave constituency. Her scribe is simply quoting Labour Party policy. Our MP quotes the same and she's a Remain MP in a Remain constituency who would never ever think of representing her voters. She, like Nandy, is doing nothing else but representing her Party's policy.

I read the tripe written by Nandy and the thing that is missing from her article is how she thinks Labour can bring both sides together.

Says absolutely nothing about how this will be done.

There is a far better article in the Guardian today about the Tories ignoring their remain voters

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisf ... SApp_Other

The same kind of thing applies to Labour and Nandy’s article is a prime example of this. She says Labour needs to win in Leave seats ignoring they also need to win in Remain seats in a general election.

She goes on about not having tried to implement the result in good faith. WTF does that mean? May’s deal? Labour’s deal which isn’t on the table? Hard Brexit (which is what some Leave voters think is the only Brexit)?

Her article attracted over 2500 comments and most are negative with many pointing out if Labour are complicit in imposing any form of Brexit without a vote they are toast.
