Anti establishment thought crimes to be punishable by no trial and a bullet down some cavernous prison complex dedicated to 're-education' of political dissidents. OK

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.

So would Arron Banks

You must be able to see what's been unleashed by this. Bigots everywhere are emboldened now. It's not a coincidence.

I don't recall 'Tommy Robinson' being interviewed on Newsnight before 2016.

Nigel Farage swanning about like a man of the people instead of the unashamed xenophobe that he really is.  He should be slinking about in grubby dark-net forums trading World War II Nazi memorabilia.

I suspect Nige, JR-M etc are coining it in with this process. Allow markets to think/hope one thing, bet against it and then ensure it gets trashed.

Okay, you've got me there.* But he's clearly more prominent now than he was a few years ago.

Haha.

I don't think he is more prominent, actually. In the early 2010s, he had an entire Channel 4 show dedicated to him, and made appearances on the BBC show 'Free Speech' as well as 'The Big Questions', was leader of a notorious street movement, spoke at the Oxford Union, and published an autobiographical book in 2015. I think he was interviewed on Sunday Politics and Newsnight around that time as well. Since then, he's mainly been in the news for being thrown off social media platforms or for being in jail.

Had a quick look on Wikipedia. It's rare to hear anything about Tommy Robinson on the news nowadays, even rarer to see him pop up on some political show or the other, so I certainly don't think he's more prominent these days.

I think news outlets became aware that the boundaries of hate speech were shifting and that they'd be under scrutiny for airing him. He too became aware that social media rather than traditional media was the new battleground and that he could push his views to his target audience far easier there (until recently).

The best thing about Brexit is people didn’t give a Poopie about Europe in 2015 when it was in the Tory manifesto. YouGov did a survey asking people about the three most important issues facing the country and your family in April 2015 - and only 16% and 8% of people said Europe. Why I think if we had any leader with a modicum of gravitas, that they could just say it’s a bloody stupid idea and we can knock it on the head, hardly anyone would bat an eyelid.

In terms of turnout % and vote numbers, I believe the EU referendum was the biggest exercise of UK-wide democracy since 1992, but apparently hardly any one cares about it.

Actually, this vote was just for amendment A to the motion. 308 didn't actually vote for no-deal. Though it is a damaging defeat to May, again.

The main motion is now being voted on, with the amendment implemented. This is where no-deal will be rejected (more decisively than by a majority of 4).

And that's the actual majority after the actual vote. Woeful standards of 'journalism' from the mainstream sites.

Theresa May apparently voted 'no'. Utter farce.

There's 4 camps in parliament.

ERG No deal
Mays agreement
Free trade soft Brexit
Remain/New Referendum

Just have a vote with all 4 as options, remove the one with the lowest vote and repeat.

Its likely she’ll bring her deal back hoping the ERG and DUP will back it otherwise they’ll lose Brexit. Whether Bercow allows her to table up an unchanged deal twice in 8 days is another matter.

In such a case, May's agreement would likely win.

The MPs voting against both May's deal and no deal need to realise that, through doing so, they're only making the latter more likely. Even if extension is voted for tomorrow (I expect it to be) there's absolutely no guarantee that the terms of extension can be agreed between the UK and the EU27 in the 15 days until exit.

That can't be the response of a politician - firstly, it directly answered the question, and secondly it is undoubtedly true...

If I hear one more politician, journalist or common or garden idiot claim that taking No Deal off the table has weakened Britain's negotiating position, I'm going to the top of the nearest tall building with a high-powered rifle.

No Deal isn't a negotiating chip, it's the worst possible scenario for the UK and the near total lack of planning and contingency arrangements means that it is essentially an act of fiscal suicide.

As a negotiating chip, it's equivalent to a hostage taker threatening to shoot himself in the head if you don't provide him with a big bag of untraceable banknotes in small denominations and a fast helicopter.

Knock yourself out mate!

Powells amendment to set a new Brexit date of 30th June just got defeated by 3 votes. Makes Benns amendment very interesting now, because if it passes we could see Brexit delayed indefinitely, depending on what the EU say to it.

Aye 412 No 202. Looks like May will bring her deal back for a third meaningful vote before going to Brussels next Thursday to ask for an extension.

Does the EC have powers to give Britain an extension - because if it has to be a unanimous decision by the EU members of state - it is not going to happen.  

If the EC does have powers to grant Britain an extension (without going to the member states) will they then attach demands that British Parliament has already rejected (such as demanding a second referendum)?

It seems to me that a no deal Brexit is going to happen on 29th March by default through lack of agreement on the nature of the extension and unacceptable demands attached to the extension.

It seems to me that a no deal Brexit is going to happen on 29th March by default through lack of agreement on the nature of the extension and unacceptable demands attached to the extension.

From the BBC: "First the request must be made," said a spokeswoman for the European Commission, "and then it is a decision of unanimity from all member states.
"There are a number of avenues for making decisions and it is not specified in Article 50 how the decision should be made."


I believe the decision will be made on either the 21st or 22nd March. It's bizarre leaving the extension request so late in the day because, as you say, a no-deal exit could happen by default if there is a difference of opinion on the terms of extension, or if there is just one member state that takes issue with extension.

French President Emmanuel Macron is already on record in saying that France will block any British extension request unless the request comes with a "clear objective" ... and who knows what the other 26 member states will say.
