  • Great that we suspended standing orders. Now to pass the motion unamended: a chance to put the destination (staying in the EU) before the vehicle (a referendum). Time to step away from the failed policy that is all too easily parodied as cutting a deal to remain in the single market then campaigning against out own deal.

    I see the leadership got their way – with a vote against being a party that would commit to reversing the Art 50 notice.

    Looks to me like a party led by lambs rather than lions
