Sex crimes as well? I don't see many people one here leaping to Weinstein's defence.
Yep. I would, until and unless he's convicted. Otherwise it's just hearsay and rumour.

Plenty of speculation amongst journalists on what's likely to happen next.  Any thought's on Robert Peston's predictions?

According to senior Labour sources, Corbyn is close to agreeing that shortly (days) after the loss of the meaningful vote by May, he would formally make his party the champion of another referendum or people’s vote - on the basis that if there is no consensus in parliament on what comes next, the question has to go back to the people.

At this conjuncture, there might well be a clear parliamentary majority for such a referendum - with the choice between May’s deal (as the only negotiated deal) and remaining in the EU - if the Tory MPs who currently say they back a plebiscite stick to their guns.

Which is why, if May sees this coming (which presumably she must), she may try to head it off at the pass by saying shortly after losing the vote that she remains committed to Brexit and will in effect lead a government of national unity to capture the will of parliament on what kind of Brexit is sought by most MPs.

If Brexit it be for the PM, rather than referendum, that would probably be Norway-plus, if she wants to reflect the preference of parliament.

This. It's absolutely remarkable. Though I'm not sure that May actually has an opinion on the EU at all. She'll just back the horse that allows her to keep her job.

As for Corbyn, he's a joke. Just imagine how different the political landscape would be in the UK if Starmer was the Labour leader.

Keir Starmer is the one UK politician who has looked competent on Brexit, and being the Brexit (shadow) minister is a v good use of his talents.  He's only been an MP since 2015 though and still comes across as a bit awkward and uncharasmatic on camera, so I think its way too premature to tout him as future leader just now. A future 'big beast' of cabinet in a Labour (led) government undoubtedly but not sure whether party leader would play to his best strengths.

Whos the debate for? Surely public debates are to help inform the public of whats on offer before we make a choice, but if we’re not getting a vote then why does it need to be on TV and not in the HoC?

The whole thing is bizarre.

I'd be interested, as I think he's potentially a very competent politician in a morass of ordinariness. Nice I guess that he's not telling us 'his' policies and causing party ructions in the same way that all and sundry in the Tories are. Would make a change if someone actually decided not to brief media off the record on 'their' policies. I would imagine he would be a Labour leadership candidate in the not too distant future.

Government found in contempt of Parliament and must now disclose the legal advice they received for Mays deal.

And Parliament just voted for the Grieve amendment, effectively killing off a no-deal, hard Brexit.

Quick review -
1. May's deal won't happen
2. No deal won't happen
3. Renegotiated deal won't happen
4. Extension to article 50 won't happen
5. Second referendum won't happen
6, Leave won't happen
7. Remain won't happen
8. General election won't happen

I think that pretty much cover things as they stand.

Except the Tory Party don't want to cancel A50, and have never expressed an interest in doing so, so it's a moot point.

Yes. All it means is any motion put forward by the government can be amended. But motions are not legally binding. Only Acts of Parliament are.

We're still heading for a no-deal Brexit if Theresa's deal gets voted down next week.

No-one who has the national interests at heart would actually want a no-deal Brexit. The only people who would welcome it are those whose ego requires them to be on the 'winning' side, regardless of the price others will pay.

What would the National interest be as distinct from self-interest?  Would it not be in the self-interest of most 'ordinary' people (ie the majority of any nation) to want to be a citizen of a Nation acting in its own Interest?

Where would the conflict of interest be?

Disaster capitalists (a minority) benefit from the misfortune of the majority (the Nation).

In terms of a No Deal Brexit, the national interest is clearly to avoid it. Others, with whatever self-interest they have, will welcome it.

That's a biased presumption.  No more than anyone could have predicted in advance the terms of a Brexit that had to be first negotiated (although virtually all remainers demanded the detail of an exit long before it could be logically given) - so too now, nobody can accurately predict that the UK National interest will be damaged or destroyed by a no-deal Brexit.  It would take 5, 6, 7, 10 years post no-deal Brexit for a true analysis of what such an exit HAS meant for the UK rather than a reliance on predictor values. Nobody can even accurately state where the EU will be or what it will be in 10 years.

I'd suggest it is in the self interest of all posters (pro or anti Brexit) to champion their preferred options.  The only thing that changes is that blueprint of self-interest.

OK, if we are talking 15 or more years down the road we have no way of knowing if Brexit is in the national interest or not. But anyone who has done even the most basic amount of research can conclude that economically a no deal Brexit will have a huge negative impact in the meantime. How huge is a bit of a finger in the air job, but pretty much huge/very huge/bloody enormously huge.

People can ignore that if they want, call it whatever 'Project' they want, or consider it a price worth paying if they want, but virtually all the evidence points to it, which is why very few people want it.

The only way No Deal happens now is if it goes to a second referendum.

I read something over the weekend that a number of people thought voting for no deal would mean things staying as they are now. That was pretty worrying.
