MV3 is going to pass.
This is indicative of a core weakness in our "winner-takes-all" political system - we're just not built for coalition/consensus-based politics at all. It's right down to the design of the HoC: two groups of people facing off against each other.
At this rate in a couple of decades we’ll be back to being a bunch of fuedal city states.
The libs will be up there again
Lol, this vote will crash as well.MPs are now voting on the Labour Party's frontbench amendment tabled by Jeremy Corbyn.
The result is expected shortly.
- rejects the prime minister's deal
- rejects no-deal
- seeks an extension of Article 50 to avoid no-deal on 29 March
- seeks an extension of Article 50 "to provide parliamentary time for this House to find a majority for a different approach"
If MV3 looks close but not quite close enough, I could her bluffing this to try and scare the last holdouts into voting for MV4.
More new parties won’t solve anything when the party in government continues to refuse to even consider working with the other parties in parliament to pass things.
Make it even more chaos

If May's motion goes through unamended, as now looks more likely, then her plan is still in play. A reminder of what that plan is: Tell Parliament to back her deal by March 20 or risk being stuck in the EU in a long limbo-like extension. The idea is to scare Brexiteers into backing her deal in case an extension gives rise to a second referendum, or a softening beyond recognition of Brexit.
Even then, it would be a real long shot. I doubt it would change anything at this point, except maybe gain some time for MPs to waste on stupid shit and worthless amendments.
