    But that's waay too deep for those that cannot understand the concept of a Brit PM selling out the country to a foreign power for a place at their trough; ain't that right, squirrel?

    And the ironies, the pwner of a once great Empire humbly conceding relegation to part of a rising Empire, dominated by Germany, through a Union conceived and designed to curb German domination of Europe.

    Now expect a flurry of lowbrow bedside 'humour' from the Belgian, a long and meaningless diatribe from the assguy, more fictional facts from the Trojan, and where did I post the exact words "-----" from the fubaa, while squirrel bounces off the walls at some tipo.

    Parliament's vote against 'no deal' is virtually irrelevant, being trumped by A50 which is a legal contract and obligation to leave on 29th, with a deal or without.

    We should leave with no formal withdrawal agreement, chop chop May, install a Brexiteer, and restart negotiations from outside the Empire on the few parts that are still not agreed.

    But we won't.

    Hey Belgian, do you even know what 'Hard Brexit' is, beyond a catchy term you read somewhere?

    At the risk of serious consequences for breach of your trademark, where does it say those exact words, "it's illegal to break down on the Queen's Highway?"

    And how many unfortunate though strategic breakdowns do you suppose it would take to bring the country effectively to a halt?

    Beware the fury of a patient man! While Brits can be pushed further and harder than French and Belgian slime, when it goes tits up the pushers head for the hills.

And that's without even considering far more serious associated matters.
    Go on, you pretend to be smart, have a guess, no need to be precise, give or take fifty thousand?

    You make a lot of noise to conceal the fact that you really don't geddit. When trivial laws are invoked wholesale to maintain order, against civil disobedience, smart money, obviously not yours, will be on the people against the best that any western gov could hope to achieve.

    You don't give up, do you! Read your own post, without a chuckle!

    Police and military devoted to keeping a few arteries open, or trying to. Actually that's probably a great idea, since it diverts from the mess that our glorious leaders made of Brexit which kicked it all off in the first place, remember? So I'm sure it'll work just fine.

    Can't imagine haulage companies being happy about their vehicles being used in a protest.
    You missed out the bit, 'without their knowledge and consent', which constitutes yet another crime for the police to thoroughly investigate, gather proof and forensics if need be, in order to demonstrate that the law is the law.

    Anyway, can't see those trucks straying too far from their yards, till your cops and soldiers clear the roads.

    If you think the government aren't going to be prepared for this and just roll over and let it happen then think again.


    Lets see who is right...

    I wouldn't pay too much attention to what this wannabe-yellow-west claims. He is a real 'ard man isn't he?

    Most hauling companies are worried over their future after Brexit and I'd find it hard to believe that they would take part in a road blockage.

    I can't understand why everyone is surprised about John Bercow's ruling on a third vote. I was expecting that to happen and said as such last week.

    It may be an old rule from 1604, but it was last used in 1943, since when no government has tried to put the same motion twice to parliament.

    It should be pretty easy to change the motion enough to get a vote on it, but getting it through, after two humiliating defeats, would be just as big a fail...

    Is that another fictional Trojan 'fact' through pronouncement?

    Apparently they are thinking about having a vote to ignore or over rule the convention from 1604. The reason Doris is pissed off with Bercow is because he allowed the second vote knowing it would fail but there was a good chance she would have got it through this time and Bercow is a well known remoaner. Basically Doris is playing Brexit football with the opposition have 12 players including the referee playing for them. Anyway I support Bercow decision this time as no one wants Doris deal, fuck knows who Doris actually listens to when she says this is what people voted for as neither leavers or remoaners want this deal.

    Would help if he explains why he allowed the same motion twice, yes?

    Her Plan B is to renegotiate Plan A, and if that fails Plan C renegotiates Plan B.

    I'm getting bored with this, hope she rolls over before Plan M.
