Would your proposed third vote but run legally or like the first one?

I've heard nothing untoward about 1975.

Ok but the part about our government showing what a shambles they are will play on people’s minds. Voters placed their faith in the government to negotiate a deal that was good for the country. That faith will have gone.

Did they place their faith in a negotiation? That’s my point, where was negotiation on the ballot paper? Negotiate what?

 

It was a binary question on what was not a binary choice. How **** spectacularly stupid was that!

All of the polls before the original vote said the same IIRC

The ones straight after didn't for a year

EDIT: Hence the SHy remainers. This time it would be the shy leavers

We simply need to repatriate a load of pensioners from Spain.  They'll be glad to help out with a little light outdoor work.

This is not altogether surprising but it should be very worrying especially for those who think that a second referendum about any deal might be put to an electorate better informed than last time.

Exactly why I'm not confident Remain would win a 2nd ref, but also why I'm not confident No Deal wouldn't win either.

Has Bercow said he's allowing the meaningful vote today or not?

Ruling to be given later.

House doesn't sit until 2:30pm and I think there are Defence questions first so ruling expected at half three from what I've seen.
