Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
So the amendment has just been passed saying Parliament will have control of the agenda on Wednesday. Depending on the mechanisms chosen to try to find a common way forward could be indecisive and just add to the confusion, but it might come up with something. But whether it does or not, I think the precident that the executive must in some circumstances be subservient to Parliament is a very good thing indeed. If there is a majority for the ruling party it has negligible effect but when either party is a minority it stops it behaving as if it had a majority. That seems right to me.
