Quoting Taylor Swift, teaching me a new word (fratricide), ancient Bacardi ads, it's Marina in top form again:

Fascinating (and I think very plausible) read about what might have happened if the result of the EU referendum had been the other way around. In a way we would be in a fairly similar situation now, a deeply divided country with a destroyed political culture. Showing that the real culprit for the mess we're in isn't Theresa May (although she contributed heavily) but David Cameron, who instigated the referendum in the first place for party political reasons, to unite his divided country. And failed abysmally. Quite possibly destroying his party (I think there's a good chance the Tories will split up) and breaking up the UK (I think if they get their referendum there's a good chance Scotland will leave the UK. Northern Ireland being reunited with the Republic of Ireland I think is also possible).

House of Commons speaker John Bercow refuses third vote on Brexit Deal


(I guess that he is sick of all the dis-orda in the House, which is the reason why he had to cut it all out. Frankly, I am thankful for this decision - they were in no way ready to ever find a meaningful and final decision if they weren't told to stop. The constructive face in this mess had long ended, it was a dying carcass that didn't want to accept its demise.)
Downing Street was blindsided by the announcement and unable to give a response at its regular afternoon briefing for journalists. “The speaker did not forewarn us of the content of his statement or the fact that he was making one,” May’s spokeswoman said.

“The Leader of the House is playing with her electronic device, and so is the deputy chief whip. I didn’t include him in the category of very senior people in the House but that’s a debatable proposition I readily grant.”
