Hilarious folk who are busy trying to undo a democratic vote who have previously used ancient little used methods to hijack parliament complaining when someone else who is carrying out the Democratic result does it, then calls it undemocratic :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just who actually runs the country you unrepresentative, un-elected tit?
Robert Kerslake, the former head of the civil service, said Whitehall would have to think carefully about whether to put ministers’ instructions into effect. “We are reaching the point where the civil service must consider putting its stewardship of the country ahead of service to the government of the day,” he said.

Yesterday evening it emerged anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller has already issued legal proceedings to challenge prorogation.
Whom exactly elected you Miller? Go ahead prove to all you and your husbands clients you know just how to waste their investments.

And so, he wants to table a motion for a general election, fine get the bill through first in order to take no-deal off the table.

The unelected possibly coming to the aid of the democratic:


In the House of Lords today there is an attempt by some Lords to pass a motion to manage the anti-no-deal bill’s passage much more quickly on Thursday and Friday than they can normally do. But what government peers are trying to do is talk out this motion. A massive 86 amendments have been tabled by government peers and in the Lords if a peer wants to talk about their amendment they can. If you think of about 40 minutes for the process for each amendment then you are looking at a lot of hours."

The whole Brexit thing is making Parliament and the bodies that run Britain look like a right bunch of buffoons. We might be world leaders at changing guards and dressing up in pantomime frocks and wigs and stuff, but in actual politics and law enforcement we resemble a country as focused and dangerous as a Parish bring and buy sale, only not as lethal . Too many cooks in the kitchen and most with not a clue how to boil an egg. I've avoided politics almost all my life because nothing about has changed much in it. The "opposition" is forever making the loudest noise whatever the topic.
The wisest and the best of men, nay, the wisest and best of their actions, may be rendered ridiculous by a person whose first object in life is a joke...Darcy. Pride and Prejudice.

It’s simple really tango - on one hand you’ve got someone acting undemocratically to uphold democracy, while on the other people acting democratically to overrule democracy.

This in a nutshell. The whole issue is a mess. The House of Lords, House of Commons, Speaker, all parties and every last fecking MP should be ashamed of themselves.

We are the laughingstock of the entire world and politics in this country has been unrepairably damaged.

It’s fascinating though. I’m enjoying thinking about the tactics employed by each side. It’s also very funny seeing Johnson dangling there with a minority government, all bluster, yet unable to actually do anything.
