"British Prime Minister Theresa May announced Wednesday on Downing Street that — after a marathon five-hour meeting — her Cabinet has agreed to back a draft Brexit agreement between U.K. and EU negotiators.

What to watch: May will provide details on the agreement before the House of Commons on Thursday, calling it "a decision which is in the best interests of our entire United Kingdom." But while she has managed to get her Cabinet on board, it will be more difficult to convince the entirety of the House of Commons, including "hard Brexiteers" in her own Conservative Party who are threatening the possibility of a no confidence vote against May over the deal, according to the BBC's Laura Kuenssberg."

And our government is outdoing Trump for headlines today. Quick, everyone quit!

Leadership battle next week as May is knifed by her own party. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.

I hate that it makes me feel a little better, knowing you guys are a sh*tshow, too.

I really wonder what will happen with Ireland.

Well that's one of the big practical problems, isn't it? The border between Ireland/NI?

I think Northern Ireland also voted massively against Brexit, iirc.

The border regions did for sure. But I don't think it was as unanimous as Scotland overall.

Northern Ireland went 55% for remaining in the EU, Scotland 62%. The worst part is that the party nominally in charge of Northern Ireland are rabid Brexiteers and completely ignore the vote of the people they should be governing.

In Scotland, support for remaining in the EU now stands at about 69%.

Yeah, there's going to be another Scottish independence referendum before too long.

Broken Record.

Broken record. Sorry but your wet dream is ignoring the obvious, the UK’s relationship with the ROI is preventing any arrangement whereby either country is outside a customs union. Therefore the UK’s Hans are tied. Any politician who can come up with a solution has to be some kind of political genius far beyond your imagination so nothing you can conceive is ever going to happen. May go not preside over any departure from the EU that much is certain. Andre Rudd rejoining the cabinet shows that any potential leaders in the party view a cabinet post at this time as toxic. No one with a future will want to join a cabinet that might not last a week.

I don't think parliament will endorse her "deal". This will lead to a general election in which neither major party will stand on a Brexit ticket leading to another resurgance of UKIP. Maybe the Conservative right will try to run a Boris/UKIP campaign in the vain hope of another single issue victory but this has been the slow death of the contemporary Conservative Party. If Parliamentery Democracy takes precedence over this narrow popular vote then the far right could waste years bitching about it meaninglessly. It' just what they need... a wasted cause.

OK, now it's been officially confirmed by Europe's top court: UK unilaterally could stop Brexit.

And Theresa May will delay the vote on her deal tomorrow in the face of overwhelming defeat.


Running Scared

Conservative Party initiates a vote of no confidence in Theresa May.

The threshold of 48 letters of no confidence has triggered an automatic ballot on Theresa May’s ability to lead the Conservative party. 22 of these were received since her decision to delay the vote on her Brexit deal. Should the majority of MP’s support the motion it will initiate a leadership contest in which she will not be able to stand. Should a significant minority vote against her she could choose to resign but if she survives the challenge she cannot face another vote for 12 months.

Sooo, this plan went down in flames today, to say the very least.

Too many people following their own agenda.

What does this mean for the future of McDonalds in Britain?
