27 votes… but what difference does it make? March 26, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

So, last night saw yet more resignations from the Tories ministerial cohort, three in total – all soft Brexiteers/anti-hard Brexit, due to them voting in favour of the Letwin amendment which nominally brings some control back to MPs, an amendment which passed seeing the government lose by 27 votes (329 to 302). The Guardian suggested the margin was greater than expected. And yet, and yet, it’s all cosmetic, isn’t it? All this in Westminster seems like the most elaborate form of displacement activity one could imagine. I’m sure it helps some MPs sleep at night, but given the UK is but short weeks away from a crash-out Brexit what on earth does it achieve?

It is a tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

“Things are so bad that no one in cabinet even knows if there is a government plan it might be convenient to forget….
just because she couldn’t govern, she didn’t want anyone else to have a go. So, though she might be willing to entertain the idea of parliament wasting some of the few remaining days it had left on indicative votes, she had no intention of paying any attention to them. Taking back control had all along been an exercise in no one having any control at all….
For her final death spiral, she declared that she would be taking no deal off the table while still leaving it firmly on it….
No one wants her to stay as prime minister, but no one can agree on who should replace her…Something had happened, but no one could quite work out what”
