    Boris Johnson has sent an unsigned letter to European council president Donald Tusk requesting a further Brexit delay beyond 31 October – accompanied by a signed one arguing against it.

    The prime minister sent a total of three letters: an unsigned photocopy of the request he was obliged to send under the Benn Act, an explanatory letter from the UK’s ambassador to the EU and a personal letter explaining why Downing Street did not want an extension.

    The late-night letters followed another bruising day in the Commons for Johnson, where MPs voted by 322 to 306 to withhold approval of his EU exit deal, forcing him to write to Brussels by 11pm on Saturday to request an extension until 31 January 2020.

    He is SO immature - I can't believe he sent three letters.

    Michael Gove, one of Boris' Ministers, has stated this morning that despite the letter being submitted to the EU last night and regardless of the EU decision, the UK will be leaving the EU on October 31st.

    What a mess.

    Don't know if this should be in here, but NI just decriminalised abortions and legalised gay marriage. It's about frigging time but finally my marriage is legal where I live!

    Fab news. I feel like it’s being massively overshadowed by Brexit.

    Fantastic news, but as with everything at the moment, Brexit is overshadowing it.

    Sad that the only reason same-sex marriage and abortion laws were passed is because we have no government after certain political parties have refused to let the people have a say on this for years.

    It's nice to see the DUP essentially make their own bed and get mad when they have to lay in it, as this likely wouldn't have happened if they hadn't gotten the Brexit result they were looking for, but it's disappointing that the mainland government had to force this on us when the NI public hopefully would've done the right thing and voted/forced the government's hand and passed these laws.

    I'm seeing a lot of people celebrating on social media but an equally large amount of people are outraged and disappointed with the result. A large number of (mostly religious or right-wing) locals changed their fb profile pictures to a dark grey with the hashtag #darkestday in protest of the result. Embarrassing for them.

    Boris is willing to take L after L as long as he's the one in charge.

    ...and on 28th January we’ll no doubt see an extension until the end of April

    At this rate it’ll be abandoned, fingers crossed.

    Looks like Labour are intent on blocking the election because students will have gone home for Christmas, but the Lib Dems and SNP are backing one for the 9th December.

    Which it will be. Lib Dems, Greens and Brexit Party are gonna suck a lot of votes from Labour and Conservatives. UK politics is such a hot mess at this point

    People need to vote tactically if they don't want a hung parliament, sadly they won't and this who GE will become another hot damn mess.

    I’m monitoring the tactical vote against the Tories site to see what that recommends for my area but I’m actually swaying to Lib Dem as a vote against the main two. It’ll no doubt be hung with a Conservative majority of seats anyway
