1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Oh Britain, what have you done (part ∞+14)?

    The Spelman/Dromey amendment won. MPs have said they are not will to leave the EU without a deal, so they are against No Deal.

    The good news came from a combined amendment by the Tory and Labour MP.

    So no deal ruled out! Seems those Labour MPs who wouldn't vote with Cooper backed Spelman!

    The 38bn is money *we already owe*. Any idea that we would default on this debt is preposterous except in the fevered minds of our dumbest MPs.

    I see plenty of wealthy people panicking about leaving the EU, if the poor are to be the unlucky few then why do they care so much, the only time i see empathy for those at the bottom is when Brexit is on the agenda.

    But the Spelman amendment has no legal force. So it's a gesture albeit (perhaps) a significant one. My reading of today's votes is that the Conservative Party is willing to give Theresa May one last roll of the dice in her talks with the EU. If, as expected, the EU sticks to its red lines, and May comes back with nothing new, all bets are off and I would expect to see real fireworks (mainly, touch wood, a Tory implosion).

    We have to wait until May comes back with egg on her face again to find out
