Jacob Rees-Mogg, a prominent Brexiteer and caricature of a posh Tory cunt, admits that it will probably take at least fifty years for Britain's economy to recover.

Brexit by itself won't necessarily be the worst thing ever. It won't be good, either. The major worry is that Brexit will precipitate a deep, deep, deep recession, the kind we haven't seen since the 70s. 

FWIW, during the 70s in Britain we had a three-day work-week 'cause the government couldn't afford to keep the lights on for five days a week.

How much crack must one smoke to think this is going to end well? She’s literally got to secure deal changes that would win over the entirety of 5+ different political parties. How in sweet fuck is she expected to do that? I feel like peace in the Middle East has a better chance

UK MPs have voted by 412 to 202 for Prime Minister Theresa May to ask the EU for a delay to Brexit.

It means the UK may not now leave on 29 March as previously planned.

Mrs May says Brexit could be delayed by three months, to 30 June, if MPs back her withdrawal deal in a vote next week.

If they reject her deal again then she says she will seek a longer extension - but any delay has to be agreed by the 27 other EU member states.

You read that right. May's plan is to put the agreement that's been overwhelmingly rejected twice to a third vote in a week's time.

One of May's chief negotiators, Olly Robbins, was overheard last night telling a crowd in a Brussels bar that the plan was to keep delaying the Commons vote until the choice is accept May's deal or accept a lengthy extension to Article 50.

This happened a little over a month ago.

It was pretty hard at the time to dismiss this, it's almost impossible now.

No fucking shit lol 

 

Finally, a little bit of logic 

Well, maybe. 

The convention prohibits bringing a defeated motion back in the same Parliamentary session.

Theoretically then all that happens is that the Queen dissolves this Parliamentary session and immediately declares a new one.

She can do this with no more than a speech, as often as is politically expedient.

Potentially. 

Probably doesn't matter anyway. Today the E.U. said that they'll grant a short extension to Article 50 IF MPs pass the Withdrawal Agreement. That arguably qualifies as a substantial difference and will allow May to bring it back for a third vote.

And it will probably pass.
