I just had a moment of panic on Twitter. Coming back to an unusually high number of notifications I discovered the reason was because John Rentoul had replied to one of my tweets and he was agreeing with me. Fortunately, on investigation, I realised the comment he agreed with was simply a technical statement of fact and I haven't embarrassed myself in front of Rentoul followers (I hope!).

I was basically saying there won't be a vote on "no deal". We would just leave automatically without one. There can only be a vote/decision on accepting a deal or on postponing/revoking article 50.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I love this ;-)

Iconically, the Tory who took Cameron's old seat has resigned his front bench position to vote against May's Brexit plan.

Well more accurately, they did their bit.

At the end of the day though, HRC lost it more than Trump or his proxies winning it.

My American nephew was visiting us recently, I checked with him that they all voted for HRC although I was 99.999..% sure they would. He said 'even Mom voted, she never voted before, even though she doesn't like HRC'.

I said, nobody likes HRC, wasn't that exactly the problem. :roll:

I doubt if even Trump knows. But it makes for a good soundbite.

The "one leadership challenge a year" rule - is that a calendar year, or a rolling year? Does anyone here know, please?

I've just watched footage of Donald Trump and Melancholia Trump arrive in Helsinki. Stairs were involved - but no hand-holding. Discuss.





Edited - typo (Heksinki?)
