as I understand it, parliament get to vote on releasing funds for preparing for a hard brexit?

So say the UK heads for a no deal Brixit March 29th, and some random day before then, parliament votes to not prepare for it? really? is that ever likely to happen? don't answer that, those idiots probably would.

As for May presenting her plan B, she should simply say ther deal was plan B, plan A was to win the referendum :)

I got the same, of course

All kicked into touch. But at least the MPs can say that they have been debated as the rules stipulate

To be fair, MPs must be thoroughly sick of all these petitions where they know that their debate is no more than a pretence.

I'm sick of the petitions for their very pretence too.

Daughter works in parliament. Apparently it is commonly known that these petitions are taken no notice of and are laughed about.

They might take notice if 20 million signed one though.

Nah, they think they are untouchable and beyond reproach or even democracy 

For now.

I’ve got a feeling that the government aren’t going to keep getting away with ignoring the electorate and attempting to suppress debate about uk issues.

Hopefully. But the ballot box is where real differences will be made. Vote them out and vote in those who will carry out the will of the people

I signed one a couple of years ago but it never updated/confirmed I was added. Thinking the project was a sincere effort to improve democracy I wrote an email to the admin pointing out the shortfall and got an exquisitely passive disdainful reply about two months later, so seems it is not so sincere

I’m guessing it’s like elections. Offers the illusion of democracy.

Pre-prepared media setup is plain to see as they scrape the barrel.

Nobody is interested and nobody cares about a crap Tory MP where 78.3% of her constituents turned out where 20% more of them voted to leave rather than remain.

Her agenda is unconstitutional and an insult to her constituents who she obviously despises 35754 of them.

It's worserer than that!

Quote

When the seat was recreated in 1983, Sir Jim Lester of the Conservative Party represented it until the seat was gained in 1997 by Nick Palmer of the Labour Party, but the Conservative candidate Anna Soubry narrowly gained it in 2010 by 389 votes. She retained the seat with an increased majority in 2015; which was reduced again to 863 votes in 2017.

Her legitimacy stands on 863 people out of 40+ million.

If I were her, I'd shut the fuck up. ;)

Where are the house of Lords in all of this?

Do they think the house of Commons is doing such a good job of fucking it up their skills in this arena are not currently required?
