UK: Date unveiled for Theresa May’s meaningful vote on Brexit

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

The can can’t be kicked down the road much longer. Government sources have revealed that Theresa May is planning for the meaningful vote on her Brexit deal to go ahead on Tuesday 15th January, just six days before the deadline. This week, we’ll also be offered new assurances that Mrs. May must have achieved during her multiple nagging phone calls to Angela Merkel and others over the Christmas period.

May’s primary tactic for winning MPs over is to scare them into thinking No Deal is on the cards, but if today’s news is anything to go by, it looks like it won’t work for a large proportion of parliament. Two hundred MPs have signed a letter to the government urging them to take No Deal off the table. The politicians come from essentially all opposition parties – Labour, SNP, Lib Dem, Plaid Cymru – as well as the government’s own party.

In their letter, MPs wrote:

“As a cross-party group of MPs, business leaders and representatives, we are united in our determination that the UK must not crash out of the EU without a deal.”

Nothing new, of course – it’s just a reassertion of where these 200 MPs stand. But, they’re technically still a minority. All it takes is for Mrs. May to win over the DUP and defectors in her party and she can pass this deal. She probably believes she can.

There’s more to this than just a letter, though. Another cross-party group will take direct action in parliament, with Labour’s Yvette Cooper and Tory Nicky Morgan planning on proposing an amendment to the Finance Bill which would stop the Treasury from implemented measures designed to facilitate No Deal. That means Parliament could effectively shut down the government in a similar way to the shut down in the United States right now. If No Deal happens, politicians might make it impossible for the country to function.

It’s funny that the same politicians who warn a No Deal Brexit would result in catastrophe are actually the ones who would facilitate that catastrophe. I’ve been saying this for some time now – these people are the architects of this entire problem. Brexit isn’t the problem, the people doing the negotiations and standing in the way of progress are.

And what a crushing, crushing disappointment it must be to true Brits who voted for May, hoping they were voting for another Maggie Thatcher!… What a colossal betrayal…

My last comment applies to Canada also but includes all of the Liberal Party.

Looks like the EU will implode before May will move on Brexit……………

I sure hope you are right Robert. I have just finished watching ‘Red’ Sky News and have come to the conclusion that half of the MP’s from all political parties in the UK are are in fact, NWO Marxist, flying a false flag.

Oh, the tangled web we weave, when we do plan, but to deceive. (something like that)

The self interest groups on all sides of the political spectrum are causing all the trouble. They are to busy making lots of money, with little or no competition. They forget that it is the taxpayers who have to fork out millions of pounds sterling to the EU to allow them to do this, they are the ones who will suffer.

Point of interest. The British car, ‘Jaguar’ is made in Germany.

Reminds me of that old military evergreen, ‘F..k you Jack, I’m OK’…..Lots of dirty tricks by Remoaners.
