    Bye bye Treason May?

    from the Telegraph: Tough talk in the Commons There are rumours that MPs are being threatened with a general election if they back new clause 18, the amendment tabled by Stephen Hammond. The Government tried to head it off at the pass but looks to have failed, the vote is expected at 18.45 but in the meantime the whips - the MPs responsible for discipline - are trying hard to block it. By the sounds of it this is a last ditch attempt to prevent the amendment going through. Most Tory MPs do not want another election because they fear they could lose it ... that and everyone is tired and wants a summer break. Desperate times ...

    LBC reporting it looks like the government will lose the Customs Union vote.

    Shit could hit the fan at 6pm if this goes against the government.

    The UKIP Roll of Honour

    It's down to you how much involvement you want. For example this last week I've voted in a postal ballot for the UKIP NEC, and been on a visit to the European Parliament to see what goes on there. My partner , also a member just pays her annual fee, and does nothing else. There's also branch meetings, social events, canvassing, street stalls etc. No badge- just a membership card.

    He also forgot to attach the Attorney General's letter. Probably just as well.

    (non) answer from the MP: Dear Mr J, Thanks for your email. It is not possible to leave the European Union in its entirety: we have to continue to trade with it, and that’s especially important for business and jobs across this constituency. Given the amount of trade that we currently do with the EU, it makes sense to continue to work on the basis of current rules. We will regain control over future rules and over our own borders. I attach a letter from the Attorney General which explains in more detail. Kind regards Michael Fallon MP

    Boris to make his resignation speech in parliament on Weds after PMQs. Will this be the spark?

    add her to the list of faux-leavers. Gove too; any others? At least Boris after his 2 letters dilemma has stuck with Leave ever since ( although he only sees it as his route to the top job) Edit- another one for the list- Daniel Hannan!

    Just written a very polite and (for me) modestly-articulated letter to my MP. Always feel it's good to get the message across to authority without ranting. Here it is: Dear Sir, in 2016 I voted to leave the EU. Our town also voted by a clear majority to leave. Two years later the Prime Minister has presented a White Paper which will effectively keep us shackled to the EU ; it is Brexit in name only! I feel angry and deceived. This feeling is shared with many neighbours, family members and work colleagues. We are unanimous that we will never vote Tory again if this sell-out is implemented. Please use your influence within the party to make sure the PM honours her manifesto pledges, and the mandate of the Referendum. Leave must indeed mean Leave! Yours sincerely, https://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/ List of MPs Raedwald blog today describes the extent of May's treachery http://raedwald.blogspot.com/2018/07/europe-unit.html
