    Johnson gets his first division victory before going back to the standard practice of losing.

    I would be so much more happier if you lot had gone already. No matter the problems it might bring, just END IT AND FUCKING GO.

    Then it would be just YOUR shitshow and OUR shitshow we need to think about.

    So now the UK waits for the EU to decide to give a small extension?

    well congratulations to the UK parliament to decide on something for the first time.
    I guess that warrants a slowclap? Good job UK!

    We would first have to deal with the aftermath of an uncontrolled no deal shitshow, which would be the mother of all shitshows. Clearly nobody wants that so we are riding the lesser shitshow instead.

    How though? That's the bit no one can agree on.

    Only a three week extension?

    You’re all thinking: another extension. I am thinking: another three weeks listening to Farage

    Ah well Boris can take his bill off pause in 2 weeks time and parliament gets even less time to amend it. Result.

    Donald Tusk seems to be up for accepting the UK's request for an extension, presumably this is until Jan 31st as set out BJ's non-signed letter

    'Following PM @BorisJohnson’s decision to pause the process of ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement, and in order to avoid a no-deal #Brexit, I will recommend the EU27 accept the UK request for an extension. For this I will propose a written procedure.'

    Certainly how I took it. It was practically dripping with sarcasm.

    Just hang in there. You've got ten years of free trade negotiations coming after this is dealt with.

    Honey, this will not be done in this decade. Unlikely it will be done in the next one.

    Oh yes short of revoking article 50 completely this is not going to be done for a decade or more. The initial brexit acceptance would just be the start of the long process of putting everything back into place that is needed so if people are sick of this brexit stuff then they are in for a surprise.

    This pic seems to say it all:

    Acquittal doesn't mean exoneration

    Nope, just to cheer you up a little even if Johnson gets deal through we could be having exactly the same the conversation at the end of the transition period! Great, innit!

    At this pace the EU might have an FTA with North Korea sooner than with the UK

    There are lots of ifs in this story. Chief among them is whether he even wants the deal through.

    Could we finally be getting an election???
    Would it be for the best?

    Johnson is desperate for a deal.

    Something has to change and I think that comment is a little unfair - I think the same criticism could be levelled at the voters in many countries.

    Any the government has been forced to update it's Brexit advertising.

    Fair, the same would go for any country.
    Now the public will have to to choose between a vaguely sound 500 pages piece of legislation, and no deal.
    One side will try to argue how reasonnable the 500 pages nobody could really fathom are. Article by article.
    The other side will just spew " let's get on with it".
    In your experience, who wins?
