    Looks like the EU has seen right through May strategy anyway, who hasn't really...

    The scene is being set for 'my deal or its EP elections and long extension'...

      Williamson, Fox, Mordaunt, Grayling, Truss, Leadsom and Barclay obviously would. Javid and Hunt will do whatever gets them into Number 10. Wright, Evans, Cairns and Lewis I'm not sure about, though as party chairman Lewis would presumably go with the party membership.

      Fox and Mordaunt certainly, Leadsom and Barclay possibly, Grayling probably, with his dimness being the main driving factor. But that's it, I reckon.

        This observation may already be widespread but I've finally remembered the quote Mark François has been reminding me of for the last few weeks :

        "Living proof that a pig's bladder on the end of a stick can be elected to Parliament"

        - Tony Banks on Terry Dicks.

        Gawd, I miss Tony Banks.

                              Happy memories of chanting 'There is no alternative' at Shilts for an entire 90 minutes.

                                  Woah

                                  Theresa May’s appeal for a short Brexit extension has been rejected by Jean-Claude Juncker, who said that unless the withdrawal deal was passed within nine days the UK would crash out of the EU or have to sign up to a long delay.

                                  Less than 24 hours after May had spelled out her new strategy from Downing Street, the European commission president dismissed her request for an extension of article 50 to 22 May.

                                  Speaking to the European parliament, Juncker instead set an “ultimate deadline” of 12 April for the Commons to approve the withdrawal agreement.

                                  “If it has not done so by then, no further short extension will be possible,” he said. “After 12 April, we risk jeopardising the European parliament elections, and so threaten the functioning of the European Union.”

                                  Juncker said that at that point the UK would face a no-deal Brexit but that the EU would not “kick out” a member state, in a reference to the certain offer of a lengthy extension of article 50.

                                  The EU27 is looking at an extension until at least the end of the year, with the most probable end date being the end of March 2020.

                                      Are you suggesting there's a way we don't end up with a year of bad ideas and shoddy leadership?

                                        It appears that if/when the current talks fail, there would then be AV ballots on the May deal, Corbyn's alternative, revocation of Article 50, and no deal - bringing finality to proceedings.

                                          If we only get a year of bad ideas and shoddy leadership, that sounds wildly optimistic

                                              Speaker, by convention, votes with Government to break a tied vote, so no indicative votes on Monday.

                                                This reads to me very much as "funded by the same dirty money that Boris has been wallowing in".

                                                  Nick Boles has just put a cat amongst the BBC pigeons

                                                  [URL="https://twitter.com/TomLondon6/status/1113539786374037506"]https://twitter.com/TomLondon6/statu...39786374037506[/URL]

                                                  This piece about Gibb is revealing

                                                  A great friend was Andrew Neil, whose politics and political analysis he held in high regard. Gibb, his wife Liz and two daughters would holiday at Neil’s house in the south of France. Gibb travelled by train or car. “He is afraid of flying,” says a former colleague. “That’s why he never accompanies the PM on official trips.”
