'Unenviable choices': MPs gather to vote on no-deal exit from European Union

Warring politicians will unite to block the prospect of Britain crashing out
of the EU without a deal at the end of the month, but some say no-deal is
the UK's best option.
Erm, not exaclty, this was only a motion.

May made it seemed binding, but it was only another commons poll.

The default Bill 'real' was voted by the commons to implement article
50, which is leave the EU on the 29th March 2019.


May could take note of it and go down this route and make 'real'
legislation to really kill a No Deal. But time is very short.



Back story.
The people voted to leave the EU.
Not the EU is not some honest Federal Europe. It's Commision,
who makes the laws isn't voted for by the people.

Yes there's an EU parliament, this a front of democracy,
it's only a revision chamber.


May UK Prime Minister and most MPs are Remainers out to thwart
the will of the people who voted to leave.

She's like a fifth columnist out to spike the Brexit guns and
trip it up at every turn. So she declared Brexit Ministers - MPs
would do the deal with the EU. But she really side lined them
and had her own EU fantatice - office worker - Olly Robbins do
the real deal. A Remain deal.

The Right of Tories reject May's Remain in deal.
While the Labour opposition reject it just to cause as much chaos
for another referendum, general election, what ever.

The Remain MPs don't see the EU Referendum vote as rejecting the EU.
But for a specific Brexit deal. Note their meme through out the
referendum and after was that the people were too stupid to know
what was being voted for.

The Remainers have been wanting another Referendum with the choice
of Remainer May's dog's breakfast IN deal, Or Remain IN.


There is a negative part to Brexit, but it's the UK democratic
system being shown up for just how broken it is via Remain MPs
acting like some Rump with a one sided power hold over Britain.
This solid unmoveable political class are as bad as a bias king.
