My tweet to my MP and others:

If #indicativevotes were Tory Party leadership voting rounds, only Customs Union, Labour Renegotiation and Confirmatory Referendum would still be on the table; the PM's WA would be akin to Hurd's leadership bid in 1990.

Maybe remove WA.

GreenFuture - 27 Mar 2019 22:25:03 (#5 of 9686)

TBH Id have been very impressed with the EU if they had just binned us off on Friday.

The continentals love a spectacle too.

Lawlsie - 27 Mar 2019 22:27:27 (#7 of 9686)

Well that was fun wasn't it boys and girls!

Shall we do it all again tomorrow? Or has everyone had too much ice-cream after staying too long at the fair?

I'm off to bed to listen to the Remainiacs podcast. I love a bit of Dunty swearing to get me off to sleep...

So is it Bercow’s plan to prevent May bringing the WA back for another vote unless she asks to include it amongst the other options? That would be interesting.

CaptainBlack - 27 Mar 2019 22:34:18 (#9 of 9686)

Can we just have a big game of 1970s 'It's a Knockout' with everybody doing ridiculous tasks in huge foam rubber costumes?

levelgaze - 27 Mar 2019 22:35:23 (#10 of 9686)

None of the IV results gives a shred of meat to Leavers. That's a result.

peacalmer - 27 Mar 2019 22:36:05 (#11 of 9686)

Free and anonymous votes in the next round, with preference 1, 2, 3 instead of AYE would be an interesting shift - if people know they don't have to stick to a party whip and can express a second preference without their constituents knowing, who knows what we'd see.

levelgaze - 27 Mar 2019 22:37:53 (#12 of 9686)

The twists and turns this evening have been dizzying.

JerkinMcGherkin - 27 Mar 2019 22:39:13 (#13 of 9686)

You know, I might be mistaken, but I'm beginning to think that Boris Johnson chap might be harbouring some ambition to become Prime Minister.

JerkinMcGherkin - 27 Mar 2019 22:41:39 (#14 of 9686)

And tonight's lesson, kiddies, is "Don't give the DUP a billion quid when you can get some biker down Deptford way to give you the kick in the bollocks for free instead".

ChankNolen - 27 Mar 2019 22:46:32 (#15 of 9686)

I wonder whether May will gamble and try and bring back the WA with a confirmatory vote added.

Strict Deputy Headmistress from the Lib Dems seemed to think that this would get through Parliament and of course it passes Bercow's test.

breakfast - 27 Mar 2019 22:47:51 (#16 of 9686)

This is all a big bag of rubbish.

djsuggz - 27 Mar 2019 22:48:41 (#17 of 9686)

#15

Best way forward, I think. Gets it over with.

Plus I reckon we’d stay in

foghorn - 27 Mar 2019 22:48:41 (#18 of 9686)

It´s Great British rubbish.

ChankNolen - 27 Mar 2019 22:49:21 (#19 of 9686)

I think it is striking how much spinning is now taking place on the news channels that the 'right way' to read tonight's result is a clear victory for a second referendum.

JerkinMcGherkin - 27 Mar 2019 22:50:44 (#20 of 9686)

It's the People's Rubbish. The rubbish of hearts.
