I'm interested in meaningful discussion

I have been active in government affairs for more than a decade; I hold a Bachelor’s degree in History and Political Science. I am particularly interested in foreign affairs and global leaders’ motivations, I have spent a lot of time studying the links and relationships between past and current leaders to better understand this.

Brexit amendments - What Now?

By host - richard-cruden
Theresa May has said she was surprised that the Commons Speaker, John Bercow, had allowed MPs to vote on Dominic Grieve’s Brexit amendment on Wednesday, and called on him to explain himself before parliament.

The amendment compels the government to say within three sitting days what it will do if, as expected, May’s Brexit deal is voted down next Tuesday – giving her a deadline of Monday 21 January to make a statement on the government’s intentions.
This discussion is set to be extendable. After it expires, the content will remain, but all guests will be removed. After that if any guests decide to join it, more days will be added to the discussion

The prime minister said there should be “consistent interpretation” of the rules as she waded into the row about Bercow’s decision to allow Grieve to submit an amendment on a government motion that was intended not to be altered.

Speaking at a press conference alongside the Japanese prime minister, Shinzō Abe, May said: “Obviously the Speaker made a decision on a particular amendment; I was surprised at that decision.”

Shouldn't we have had these discussions before the referendum on how we should exit or how it affects our lives? Government should have started discussions with the parliament before it went to negotiation table with EU.

Funny how an election promise becomes the unraveling of a nation...

It's a great divisive tactic if you have a crappy platform to run on. You don't need a good policy platform when you can just get groups of people choking each other out and not looking at the bigger picture. Chaos is a great tool to climb the ladder of power.

Who would have expect the English to become the thickest of all Europeans? Once an innovative pioneer in technology and industrialisation....Today, a Hollywood like pastiche of a modern striving democracy who economical base rest on its 50 years as a member of the European Union. Yet, she holds an attitude of a leading inspiring mother of Europe.

That was my thinking as well Celina, that would've been the more sensible thing to do
