  • Well it is a huge change and it did come about for all the wrong reasons but people seem to miss the historical significance of it all. All the discussion is about what stupid thing politician x or y may have said or done or whether the british gdp will fall by 1 or 5% the next year or if the Slovene worker will be able to stay or not and forget that something much bigger is at play here and that is essentially the structure of the post-war order in Europe.

    • Britain's entitlement is through the roof (surprise surprise). Have fun with that No Deal Brexit, ladies and gents.

      • That video however forgets a major point: that you start a negotiation with maximalist positions and gradually give up ground until you reach an agreement. The UK does not have to have an agreement identical to any of the existing ones with non-EU members. But it does have to give up on at least some of its opening positions and the same has to be done by the EU as well (since it is in the interest of at least a few members states not to have a no deal Brexit). So in that sense the above video's main message is flawed...

          • Crikey, watching BBC News - Brexit feels like a million miles away.

            • What do my brothers from Britain think it will happen?
              Will the UK stay in the EU?

              • For those just joining the party, this is where we're up to:

                * MPs will vote on Theresa May's deal tonight - if they vote in favour, the UK will request a technical extension to "Brexit" as there isn't enough time now to pass the legislation required before the planned leave date.

                * If MPs vote against May's deal (widely expected), then tomorrow they will vote again - this time on whether we exit the EU with "no deal" - widely expected that they will vote against this also.

                * If MPs vote against a "no deal" exit from the EU, we are left with one of two scenarios: we go back to a referendum to once again poll the British public on whether we exit the EU or May asks for an extension on negotiating a new deal.

                • You assume she’ll keep the top job [MENTION=11323]Wayne[/MENTION]. I’m not sure she can after today, though I’m happy for her to until this mess is sorted. I expect another vote of no confidence from Corbyn again if I’m honest.

                  Are the votes binding? If she loses the vote today then I’m not sure tomorrow’s is binding... meaning she could just power ahead with no deal. We might have no choice - the EU could technically force us to if they don’t grant the extension (and who would blame them?)

                  I can not believe we are 17 days from Brexit and they’re still all acting like it’s 2016.

                    Random and off-topic, but I need other languages to adopt literal translations of this. The German / French equivalents for example just don't cut it.

                      • The no lobby is packed out

                        Surely she can’t last the week in the job now?

                        • I love seeing the Commons when it's packed - I wish it was this packed for domestic debates and votes.

                          • May's vote:

                            Ayes: 242
                            Noes: 391

                            May's vote is toppled by 149 votes.

                            • May's voice.

                              I almost feel sorry.

                              • FYI - a "free vote" is otherwise known as a conscience vote: May is essentially committing to not pressuring her MPs with party whips, and is allowing them to vote freely.

                                • It wasn't as bad as the vote before... But what happens now? Will May resign? Second referendum?
                                  If there will be another referendum, what you guys think the outcome will be?

                                            Well I’m fast forwarding a little bit she’ll be told to go and ask for one.

                                            I hope they say no - the assumption is they’ll just say yes.

                                              For one, the EU doesn't want the UK to leave, for all the reasons and especially to serve as an example of how hard it is to leave.

                                                The EU has their own elections in May so everyone changes jobs. Either we sort it now before that or we’re looking at roughly a year delay.

                                                  • Also, it’s not the EU that is delaying Brexit, it’s the UK. Another country might have unity over the issue.

                                                    I just have no idea what can be done in the UK to get something through parliament that allows us to leave - aside from a no deal. It’s so obvious that no deal is the only way forward.
