    The same people that believe international tax evasion by large conglomerates is something JC Juncker arranges for them. The same people who believe corruption & dissent is the way to solve the problems humanity faces on a global scale.

    There isn't much in this. Some of the votes next week will be closer than those last night, and the gov't will make some minor process concessions, but this rebellion won't be a material one (i.e. no chance of a final vote defaulting to another renegotiation). The Tory rebels are split on this point, and there's enough support from the other parties to guarantee passage. The real fireworks won't come until the Great Repeal Bill, which is less politicised than the triggering of A50.

    Oh look facts how inconvenient...

    China - Trade - European Commission

    EU-China trade has increased dramatically in recent years. China is the EU's biggest source of imports by far, and has also become one of the EU's fastest growing export markets. The EU has also become China’s biggest source of imports. China and Europe now trade well over €1 billion a day.
    EU imports from China are dominated by industrial and consumer goods: machinery and equipment, footwear and clothing, furniture and lamps, and toys. EU exports to China are concentrated on machinery and equipment, motor vehicles, aircraft, and chemicals.

    That's when people start to realise we're probably going to keep more or less all the laws that were supposedly forced upon us? That will be interesting.

    There's a greater question here as to whether we expect politicians to now be reduced to simply taking an opinion poll and voting for what the people say, or whether we want them to start being politicians again. I did like the bloke that gave the 8 second speech; he may as well have said "we're all entirely pointless".
