Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
A method of stopping a no-deal is if a suitable amendment is made to MV3. One sure way of stopping that approach is to put in a series of different amendments where the 'arcane methods' of Parliament mean that, in many cases, if an earlier amendment is passed, there is no vote on yours. It looks very likely as a result of the meeting with May that all the opposition parties excluding Labour could put in a jointly agreed amendment.
But it looks as if Labour would not support it. They want to have their own Brexit version, which the opposition would not support.
For all May's madness, it could end up being Labour that gets us into a no-deal.
