Indeed Gove has previous history as we know and a leopard never changes his spots.

Re: Brexit

Taken from https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46832808

"We're going to get smashed" - one government insider's apocalyptic prediction about one of the most important votes in recent political history.

IF this is general consensus, what can May do? No Deal is not going to happen. Mays deal looks like it will be heavily rejected.

Corbyn wants to have a GE but would need to extend A50 to be able to 'attempt' to renegotiate (Personally I can't see the EU moving one inch)

Conservative MEPs have been summoned to Downing Street to meet the PM... No10 source says it's a regular meeting but MEPs are speculating about an extension to Article 50 meaning they would have to stand in the May Euro elections...

Re: Brexit

MPs can block no deal if they vote for something else. It's the something else that's been the problem.

People are playing a game of risk here. Brexiters are risking leaving at all by letting the process fly up in the air giving an opening for Remainers to reorder the pieces before they fall whereas Remainers are risking crashing at with no deal in the hope they can stop the entire thing.

At the moment it's technically possible for this to all be cancelled without much issue. Even with May's deal if the Brexit date passes then we're out. Even if the Remainiest of Remain governments takes over it would require a reapplication to get back in. If I were a Leaver I would be more concerned about getting across the finish line than worry too much about the backstop.

He's only saying that to get MPs in to line and scare them in to voting for May's deal.

A Senior Clark of the House who knows the Commons Parliamentary procedure to the letter and says there is no move Parliament can make to force a stop to no deal Brexit, would not matter if MPs held a vote or any number of votes, the fundamental principle remains, a Bill would have to be presented by the Executive, that's the Government of the day, to change the Statute that is in place, remember, a new statute can only overrule statute.. No amount of pushing for votes or amendments will alter the current law.

That law shows the clock is ticking, we leave the EU on 29th March.

Parliament cannot dictate to the Minister of the Crown, to cancel or retract Article 50 regardless of how many votes they have.

Will she do what she did last time and call off the parliamentary vote at the last minute knowing she is facing a heavy defeat..

That's not true - as I said above - there is no move parliament can make to stop it, it's the law. We leave EU on 29th March with or without a deal.

Parliament makes the law. If it wanted to, it could change it. It may have to bring down the government to do so obviously.

And Downing Street today has ruled out extending or retracting Article 50.

There is no majority in the house to bring down the Government. DUP will still support Tories and no current rebellious Tory MP would be stupid enough to vote against it's own government. This is why Jeremy Corbyn has not declared a full no confidence motion in the PM as of yet.
