I like most of my fellow citizens have given up trying to work out what stupid games are being played in the Palace of Westminster. Today we are supposed to have a meaningful vote. Why this is more meaningful than the last one is anyone’s guess? Last night we had the Prime MInister rushing to Strasbourg to…well I’m not sure what was achieved.
So if this meaningful vote fails then tomorrow we are going to have another meaningful vote on whether the House of Commons is willing to allow Great Britain leave the European Union without a withdrawal agreement. Failing that there is a third vote scheduled for the day after tomorrow to see if the House of Commons wants to ask for an extension. I haven’t the first clue if this vote will be taken if the House of Commons votes to leave without a deal – which by the way is the current legal position.
So just over 2 weeks to go and we still don’t have the first clue what is happening. Neither does the EU which seems to be quite sanguine about everything. If I was in their position I wouldn’t be because anything could happen and in truth the EU fears this whole process as much as the British Government does. But seeing as truth seems to have been the one thing absent from the whole Brexit process I vote for Unicorns. No wait this is…a meaningful vote?
