RE: UK Referendum on EU Membership (Brexit) Thread
The result of the court case is just a minor technicality in the grand scheme of things. I am very confident that the motion will pass in parliament, as only the SNP, Lib Dems and the Greens will vote against it. That is only 65 MPs out of 650 total, so even if some Conservative and Labour MPs rebel against the party line, it should still pass reasonably comfortably.

The way it should have been done if it had to go through the parliamentary route would be to count the vote per constituency, and then the MP for that constituency votes in line with how their constituents voted.

Relax guys. It will be passed. Both major parties are committed to triggering Article 50. I expect them to now pass it within a week or two.

Heh, never thought they'd actually go through with it, I figured they would just virtue-signal stall until nothing happens.

Woohooooo!

And Paul Nutall (UKIP leader) will be in that chamber come the end of the month after he wins the Stoke by-election.

Sorry for being out of the loop - so this means 100%, no ifs no buts - exit? What about the colossal fine that those lovely EU coryphaeus' want to impose on the UK for the Brexit, is that also true?

Any fine is peanuts compared to what the UK pays into the EU. They are fucked without the UK hence the massive resistance.

If another country like France goes independent then it is curtains for sure.

They will bring lawsuits for Ireland and Scotland because they want to be ruled by autocrats in brussels and the English do not.

These traitors will squabble about how they are sovereign nations and Parliament is sovereign but they want to be governed by unelected officials. Nobody in the media has yet thrown them that line except Farrage.

Congratulations to UK for completing the second step of Operation Liberation.

Failure to comply with popular vote would have resulted in a much bigger loss, on the long run, for the UK establishment.

I do not know much about british politcs, but UKIP seems like a one man army. It seems to me Extremely dependent on Nigel. He needs to step up his game and outright teach his party on how to create their own image. How to be informed, how to debate and how to speak to masses.
UKIP needs to hammer Labour hard, not necessarily to get their votes, but to steal them from Tories, trying to force some kind of coalition in the future. Corbyn is a mess whose balls got removed by Theresa May.

That's possibly one of the most ironic things I've ever seen.

The Brexit Bill was passed in the Commons today, it now goes to the House of Lords.

The SNP MPs were told off for whistling the EU anthem Ode to Joy during the proceedings.

It sounds like Ireland and Scotland have been reading E.U. history books about the magnanimity of the English towards their peoples. Absurd.

The SWP is bringing some absolute madness at the moment, though I'm afraid I don't keep up with Scottish politics quite so much.... ugh. Glad the general direction things are going in, wish May would get some better media training though.
