To those who watch the #ABZ Brief, I will try put something out in the next few days.

Honestly, ive been having a bit of time and my heads been up to my arse, I can bearly tell my arse from my elbow.

Anyway, Let's talk about the political state of play. #AllOutPolitics
THREAD
Politically (in Westminster), we are still in the exact same place as we were this time last week, with a VONC being spoken about but STILL being the absolute WORST and most dangerous idea...
I find it interesting that now, the party who is making sure that a VONC (vote of no confidence) remains dangerous, are the Liberal Democrats.

You may ask why that is, well... Keep reading!
Under the 'Fixed Term Parliament Act', (the second worst thing @David_Cameron did). When a VONC is called, the House of Commons will have 14 days to essentially go to the queen with a new leader, which would (have to) be the leader of the opposition.
The Liberal Democrats are making this entire process dangerous because they are refusing to Help Corbyn (rightfully) take power because he is a socialist and the people who fund the Lib Dems (and who are going to profit from No-Deal) are scared Socialists will attack their greed.
Now, back on point. Once that 14 days pass, and the opposition fails to replace the PM / Government, there will then be ANOTHER confidence vote. If the second confidence vote passes, this leads to a 20 DAY GENERAL ELECTION PERIOD.
So, for those who would rather we get to the numbers.

14 + 20 = 34 Days.

Brexit is due to happen in 30!

We simply do not have the time to have a General Election.

Meanwhile, the Benn Act ...
... has used the law to instruct Government that if they do not have a deal by the 21st of October, they must get a Delay to A50.

Let me ask, What happens if on the 21st, we are in a General Election Period?

SPOILERS : No Deal! THE WORST OUTCOME...
So, to round this thread off. This is why currently, the Liberal Democrats are the ones who are literally toying with disaster, as they could suck it up and set up a temp Government with Labour to stop Brexit ...

Thanks to the yellow Tories, no-deal looks to be happening.
