So they have now voted to ask for an extension to Brexit. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-47576813

It is unsure how long Mrs May will ask for, or for how long the EU27 will be willing to give (if anything)

Apparently she is likely to try and bring her "Meaningful vote" back to the commons sometime next week and before she asks for the extension.
Third time lucky.

MPs vote against second Brexit referendum by majority of 249

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/li ... itics-live
This was, however, a pretty irrelevant early result since most "second Brexit referendum" supporters (such as the People's Vote campaign and the Labour party) didn't back this particular amendment. They're holding their cards for later when the impact will be more effective.

Incidentally, this is quite an interesting read:

Commons Speaker John Bercow has thrown the UK's Brexit plans into further confusion by ruling out another vote unless MPs are given a new motion.

Whoops.....

Oh dear - democracy in action - you can't just ask the same question again and again until you get the answer you want.

I'm sure much oil is being burned to see what minimal changes can be made to get over this hurdle....

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me

That's more or less what big developers or fracking companies do when they don't get planning permission at the first attempt ( but that would be a topic of it's own )

Although it is unclear whether she was going to ask again anyway, as has been stated that she would not unless she was sure enough minds had been changed and the DUP were key to that. It does not look as though they are playing ball, yet.

Perhaps a bigger bribe would help focus their minds?

Northern Ireland might have economic problems but they are largely brought on themselves. Many areas of the country have severe economic problems which are not their fault.

But it is NI which gets the bungs to keep the DUP sweet and onside. But the DUP know so well how to play hard ball and they never bllink

It may not be appearing much on the UK news regulars but France has a great deal of internal problems at the moment: https://www.france24.com/en/20190317-fr ... 2463152530

Not sure what riots in Paris have to do with Brexit, is it clearer for anyone else?
