The British public need to take back control from the MPs. Not one honest MP left in Westminster. The days when MPs cared about the public have gone. Show me a MP who say they do and I will show you a lying low life bottom feeder.

No one will get a majority vote for whatever deal there is. Because you voted leave and didn't vote for what deal it would come by....

How many Conservatives get asked their opinion?

How many from Labour? And which Labour MPs?

Impartiality...

I've never seen such bullshit in all my life. Take away the country's biggest bargaining chip (no deal) and refuse ANY other deal that delivers what the country voted for in an attempt to circumvent the people's will because THEY know best. CIVIL WARS HAVE STARTED OVER LESS!!!! FOOLS!

May's tactic riding towards the cliff hasn’t played out for the last two years. The Speaker is speeding up the process and brings it on a line. He is doing the right thing. Citizens want a decision, this way or the other. One side always will be disappointed, that how democracy’s works.
The rest of Europe don’t even laugh about it anymore.
My advice...., get out anyway it takes, see how it works out. If yes, ok if not you always can join the club again. But…., finally...., by all mercy..., take a final decision and don’t abuse the parliamentarian system to avoid the inevitable .

A no deal brexit is no less likely today than it was yesterday. It's the legal default. It doesn't matter how many MP's dont want it, the only way they can stop it is to agree to something they do want in it's place. There is the problem because there is absolutely no majority for anything else, including stopping brexit, a 2nd referendum, Norway etc...
