    Lords approve the Bill unamended (in a couple of minutes at least ). Job done, Royal assent tomorrow morning, I expect.

    It's every man for himself now, fook the poor.
    Perhaps The posh boys Farage, Pffelel Johnson and Rees Mogg can start a charity "Workhouses for the Brexit Poor".

    Talking to parents at my sons prep school yesterday, I think the Beleavers underestimate the wrath of the Remainers, purely because the latter do not rant.
    But there was a a definite desire for revenge and punishment.

    Jacob Rees Mogg has strong working class support. He even brings his nanny out canvassing.

    I was watching some of the Commons debate yesterday. People making interesting points on both sides, but you sensed they knew full well that it was entirely redundant. All that impassioned debate and the reality is Theresa May would order her MPs to support the government's position and that would be that. Which is pretty much what happened.

    That's what we mean by a "sovereign parliament". One that does whatever the government wants.

    Well, usually the government is run by the party that have the majority, and those of that party not in the government want to be in, so they'll usually go along with it. 'Twas ever thus.

    It's usually run by elected PM - May isn't elected and got no mandate for dictatorial decisions like that - all who voted like she said are complicit now

    As a foreigner who has made the UK their home you should learn about UK politics.

    May is elected.

    Party leaders are chosen by party members including MPs to be the leader.

    The party with the most MPs forms the government.

    Hence May is as much elected as Camoron.
