BREXIT So what happens next?

Monday 29 July, just 94 days left before the BREXIT deadline. Parliament went into recess for the summer last week, with proceedings drawn to a close with Boris’ bulldozing of a bewildered Labour front bench, in his inaugural address to the House as PM.

Friday 22 March and so much has happened in the last week! The speaker blocked meaningful vote 3 on the May deal, invoking a precedent set in 1604. Mrs May went on live television to the British people and blamed MPs in the House for not making a decision. Yesterday was the EU Summit in… Read More
