    Will the WI mobilise as well?

    Haha, a permanent break down of trust in politicians, I think that ship sailed a long time ago. I don’t believe anyone truly thought that the situation we currently have would be the outcome when they voted, but the vote was to leave and that should be honoured. I can see no merit in a second referendum.

    Don't worry, Brexit or no Brexit, cars will remain overpriced on the island.

    May's been adamant on quite a few things but they haven't exactly gone how she said.

    Were they voting on exactly the same thing? Er, no. Do you not think there is a chance that some who had confidence back in December will have woken up feeling different today?

    +1 I visited a few years ago to go to the museum (my grandfather served with the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders).

    Maybe but the mood has definitely changed. Voting for the deal does not automatically mean confidence in the leader, some people know when to play the ball rather than the player. It is all hypothetical of course and as I said I’m not sure the overall result would have turned out differently.

    Can’t help thinking that the Tory rebels missed a trick by not waiting for today to call their vote of confidence in their leader. I’m not sure it would have turned out differently but I’m pretty sure they would have got more no votes than they did back in December. I know it could be argued that they had no way of knowing how the deal vote would have went but it seemed quite a safe bet that it would fail.

    The vote of confidence in the Government thing is a waste of time. A large majority of the Parliament might not have supported May’s deal but I doubt a majority relish the prospect of another General Election and Corbyn has no chance of winning one if it did happen. Obviously, we will find out soon enough but personally I cannot see this vote of confidence going anywhere.

    True, but it still should be big enough to give each of them a seat and probably somewhere to put papers. The House of Commons is a nice looking building but about as practical as a chocolate fireguard.

    The whole thing demonstrates one thing - the ridiculousness of having a debating chamber that isn't actually big enough to sensibly hold all elected members.

    What a load of bollocks, what's any of it got to do with shaving? Roger Sterling will be turning in his grave.

    US Government shutdown means that there is no catering staff for The Whitehouse. Trump orders in McDonalds.

    There are a period around 2002/2003 when there was a murder pretty much every month.

    You do wonder why she went for the job, I can only assume that the prospect of being PM whatever the political climate was simply too much to resist. Whoever took over as the PM dealing with the exit was on a hiding to nothing, pissing off those wanted to remain and probably only satisfying those hedgefund gamblers who want to leave without any deal.

    You're the one constantly moaning on, you want to try cheering up, what's the worse that could happen? No remaining here, bring on Brexit.
