The House of Commons approves Lords Amendment 5 to the #EUWithdrawal5Bill by 390 votes to 81. This concludes debate on Lords amendments to the #EUWithdrawal5Bill. The Bill now awaits Royal Assent.

Backbench MPs have passed historic legislation to delay article 50, forcing the government to set out its timetable for the length of the Brexit delay in order to prevent the UK exiting the EU with no deal.

Those will be the barometer of the mood of the country. UKIP will be going balls out to win as many of those seats as possible and I don't think we can rely on the electorate to vote sensibly.

In Dublin today, Nancy Pelosi said this: “Let me me clear, if the Brexit deal undermines the Good Friday Accord there will be no chance of the US - UK Trade Agreement”

Explosive report by Ch4 News!
Brexit group covered up its targeting of right-wing extremists

Brexit-backer Arron Banks repeatedly denied that Leave.EU appealed to National Front supporters – in a bid to get the BBC to drop an investigation.

Andy Wigmore, Leave.EU’s Head of Communications, even appealed to the head of BBC Westminster, Robbie Gibb, in a further attempt to prevent the story from being run.

Mr Gibb is now Theresa May’s head of communications.

I read a piece the other day about even Hard Brexiter Tories now backing a second referendum out of fear before whatever deal May and Corbyn might hammer out.

Just ten days to go before the Euro elections for 73 MEP seats.

I’ve long been thinking that the UK should leave rather sooner than later. But 34% for that no-good lying demagogue whose only reasons for doing anything in politics are the attention and the money? That settles it. I don’t care how, I don’t care how much it costs the EU, I don’t care if my own non-refundable travel plans go to the dogs: the UK needs to get the fuck out. At this point, there is no sense in further negotiations.
