Political Bollocks

So the Labour delegates have decided to endorse Corbyn's fence sitting tactic on Brexit. How exactly is that going to please either the remain or leave Labour voters?

4 day working week for the same pay, yep, this really is time warp politics.

What did we do to deserve the 3 main parties to be so utterly useless? Is it them paying us back for ignoring them and voting to leave the EU?

We voted for the barstewards. On top of that, the parties preferred to choose candidates who were afraid of offending anybody (especially the media) so the characters almost entirely disappeared from public life. It’s hard to imagine Churchill or even Tony Benn being acceptable as parliamentary candidates these days.

The party system is to blame. Self-selecting, self-promoting, self-funding, self-interested. All of them.

I'd wager that, if voting shocks continue in the vein they currently are and Jeremy Corbyn makes it into number ten, within eighteen months he'll be forcibly removed. Him and his shadowy, hideous cabal of Marxists.

The best thing that can happen to politics at the moment is for the Labour party and the Tories to split, and for both centre-leaning groups to form a centrist coalition, pull in the clearly ill-at ease with their LibDem surroundings exiles and kick the hard left and hard right over the posts.

They could do a hell of a lot of damage in eighteen months.
It's that progressive crash which will trigger it. Union resurgence, pay demands, inflation taking off, lay offs and stagnation, borrowing to stave off debt (they've had history for it) and a depletion of the armed forces and police.

It will the them, or massive civil unrest with the AF and police ranged against the people, which will trigger his removal.

Johnson also is looking at an ignoble exit if he's not very careful.

After a brief interlude Parliament will shortly resume its mysterious & mischievous ways and work tirelessly to bugger up the latest algorithim:

Well, there we are, the Supreme Court has ruled on the prorogation. It’s a ruling against the Executive, and, in particular, against the Prime Minister. Whether that means he’ll resign is an open question. It’s clearly the honourable thing to do, particularly as he has lost every important vote in the House of Commons since becoming PM and therefore cannot be said to command a majority.

Second, it opens the door to a vote of confidence in the government in the House of Commons. If the government loses that, there is a period of 14 days during which attempts can be made to form a new government, and, if that fails, there will have to be a general election under the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act. It’s not too clear what the likely result of such an election would be.

Third, the timetabling means that if there were to be a general election, it might well not be able to take place (according to the timetable in Schedule 1 to the Representation of the People Act 1983) until after 31 October, and, in those circumstances, I think it’s inevitable that the Brexit date would have to be postponed.

We are living in interesting times!

Most of our MP's are running scared of a general election at present citing they don't want one until the election date is after Halloween which by my reckoning is about now.
The MP's pissed with power are going to mess us all about for some time yet even though they could be rid of the Johnson government within days.
Whether they like it or not Parliament will eventually have to go to the people. The people are not happy on either side of the Brexit argument, they just want a conclusion so those MPs who have jumped ship and those who have gone against their party policy as stated at the last General election can look forward to retirement or the Job Centre.

From Katya Adler beeb EU reporter.
-
But the EU is aware that the route to a new extension is neither straightforward nor guaranteed.

Parliament may have passed a law instructing the government to request a new extension if a Brexit deal isn't reached by mid-October. But if Boris Johnson refuses - as he insists would be the case - then EU leaders would normally listen to him, their peer, as head of Her Majesty's government.

EU sources point at Spain (and the Catalan issue) as to why leaders alone - not parliaments - represent member countries at the EU table.

But as so often when it comes to Brexit, this situation is messy.

Is this what Boris has up his sleeve ?.
