    I give up. You can’t make this up. MPs keep telling the PM er deal was terrible and they were better options. They take control and vote against every alternative they’ve all banged on about for the last few months. We leave in 11 days with no way forward other than the default no deal scenario.

    There’s a difference between what we have to pay though - the deal involved additional funds for the transitional period after we left.

    I’d rather we paid £100bn and left yesterday than drag this out though

    That's why I replied to menime123 that EU isn't hung up about the deal or no deal situation.

    So unless you have anything to add, questions you want to raise to seriously engage in the conversation or anything to - god forbid - stimulate discussion, please don’t bother the grown ups.
    Haha what stimulates you anyway?

    In other news, The Independent Group formally apply to become a political party - Change UK Party - with Heidi Allen as interim leader.

    Change.org objecting to it

    I don’t know much about them just yet - who does? - but a centrist party is something I could get behind.

    I highly doubt that. 2nd referendum, customs union and Labour alt plan were by far the most popular options in Wednesday's vote and there's literally no way that any of them could happen this fast.
    If we needed to, a referendum literally could be called and take place within a week. We might need to yet, now there’s a council meeting on 10th April.

    The fact is though that the EU won’t just let us walk away without them getting anything out of us. The deal on the table included £39bn towards the EU budget and they’ll want it.

    But I wish they’d just tell us ‘no extension’ and we leave without. I’m so sick of it all.

    The MPs have Monday to sort out their preferred Brexit. Despite rejecting everything earlier this week. If the figure something out we can ask it to be put into the political statement as part of May’s deal and vote on it again. EU will probably accept this and have us leave in May.

    Failing that, it’s a long term (years) delay or no deal.

    Vote is today at 2.30pm. If it passes, it looks likely to be a close thing. If not... there’s talk of a general election but I’d prefer no deal!
