Bercow has had enough. The Speaker just said an hour ago that he won’t allow yet another vote on the same legislation.

I actually quite like Bercow, he’s not easily cowed by the Tory crazies, which pisses them off no end.

Prediction:  May will wait a week, change the wording in a single clause, and run it through parliament.

Bercow has said that unless there's a change that the EU agrees to, he won't do it.

I mean, May would certainly try that. She is the first PM to ever be found in contempt of Parliament, after all.

More likely, May will end the Parliamentary session, since that would allow her to put the vote forward again.  But it would make it clear that she is being a tard.

Well, the EU just lost their patience.

They just said a short extentsion of Article 50 will require Parliament to pass May's deal.

People are talking like this will prevent No Deal, which just shows how they don't understand anything.

Parliament has to agree on something, which the EU can then agree on, to prevent No Deal.  Or the EU has to extend Article 50.

Unless those conditions are met, No Deal is the automatic outcome, whatever Parliament has voted for.  It's the default.  And it's due to expire next Friday.

Exactly, you grasp the inherent flaw.

So I have a small bet on May triggering the civil contingencies act after her speech this evening at 8pm and declaring martial law.  Especially since the word on the street is she intends to go "above the heads" of Parliament which is impossible given...Parliament is sovereign.

Also Macron is apparently even more pissed than the EU and has threatened, according to unconfirmed French media reports, to veto all delays to Brexit.

Oh, and Operation Yellowhammer, the "No Deal" contingency plan was meant to be mobilised this weekend for Monday anyway.

Not that Operation Yellowhammer has anywhere the resources needed to handle No Deal Brexit, which is why we will be abandoning all customs checks at the borders to keep goods coming in, apparently.

Yay, legalised smuggling.  Lead paint chips for everyone!

There is so much HERE. I don’t know what to tell you U.K. folks, it’s like the American preppers were right but on the wrong landmass, and assuming malice instead of dogfucking stupidity.

I'm fairly certain the EU tactic now is to allow no deal to happen, asset stripping commences, either the UK comes back either looking for Mays deal or full customs union without the backstop.
11% or 1tn pounds of the asset management portfolio is moving out of the UK and that is now regardless of brexit happening or not, they cant wait any longer

I would expect these to increase after no deal occurs.
