  • When you look at the MP voting breakdown, it’s definitely shifting the onus for the final Brexit outcome from the PM, to a hodgepodge coalition mostly comprised of Labour support.

    It will be interesting to see who really takes the lead on this, and who will be the face. At present it seems like a matter

    When you look at the MP voting breakdown, it’s definitely shifting the onus for the final Brexit outcome from the PM, to a hodgepodge coalition mostly comprised of Labour support.

    It will be interesting to see who really takes the lead on this, and who will be the face. At present it seems like a matter of collective credit against the possibility of collective blame. Whatever happens May and most of her government will get thrown under the bus, but now she might be far from alone in that honor.

  • European papers already noting that they expect the UK will leave the EU in the absence of a deal. The EU has already put out statements that the European Commission has today completed its ‘no-deal’ preparations. http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-19-1813_en.htm

    There are also extensive preparations

    There are also extensive preparations being done at Nation level, with multiple statements and instructions on what happens with trade, residency etc. The EU thus far as far more prepared for each and every contingency of brexit than the UK.

  • From the sidelines in the US, the British parliament seems more concerned with politics than compromise for the sake of the people. I can’t understand why everyone there will risk crashing out, damaging the economy and reputation of the UK globally - except that they’re angling to blame it on a political

    From the sidelines in the US, the British parliament seems more concerned with politics than compromise for the sake of the people. I can’t understand why everyone there will risk crashing out, damaging the economy and reputation of the UK globally - except that they’re angling to blame it on a political opponent. This is how great nations fade away - by getting so far removed from reality in governance that it all falls to pieces.

  • It’s kinda crazy, there still isn’t a path forward and most of the options are equally poor. Now that the MPs have voted to take control its uncertain what option they will pick or why they would be willing to take credit for either the failure to pass a deal or the success of passing a bad deal. Hopefully

Hopefully they get a second referendum vote.
