It stems from a post I saw a bit over a day ago...
It was suggested by the person who wrote it that IF Parliament had a vote to #RemainInTheEU, they could,
even at this ridiculously late stage, get the PM to write to the EU, revoking May's Article 50 notification, and that this would result in the end of the #Brexit insanity forthwith. Status very much quo, or ante, or something.
A #Brexit question for you. If our unelected PM uses trickery and delaying tactics after losing a vote of no confidence in him, does he succeed in forcing the UK out of the EU?
I think it would be much better if the EU extended things until we can sort
out who is actually in power here.
• The majority of the people in the UK do not want to leave, we want to #RemainInTheEU.
• There has not been a constitutionally valid decision by our Parliament to leave.
• Article 50 was activated by May alone, with no authority.

Well now, we've had meaningless votes, and we've had indicative votes, and we have still not made anything sensible happen.
Here's a thing to try next. You'll need to tag YOUR MP in on it, even if they are the most useless creature that ever sat in the @HouseofCommons.
There's a vote they still have NOT had.
It's the free vote on whether to take the advice of the utterly corrupt advisory referendum, and leave, or be sensible and #RemainInTheEU
MPs have NOT voted on that. That decision has NOT been made.

Right now, there are lots of MPs saying they want to #StopBrexit, but don't think there's a way do do it using existing Parliamentary procedures.
I will let you into a secret, MPs. Every single one of the existing Parliamentary procedures was made up at some point...
And guess what? You can do that as well. Stop being terrified of the ugly woman with the gigantic necklaces, for a start.
Now, organise yourselves by talking to each other. All of you need to go to the Commons chamber, stand there, refuse to carry out whatever business the...

The reason we are in this mess...
Most MPs are useless party drones, collecting their pay and expenses, and voting the way they are told to.
When the #Brexit advisory referendum result was announced, the correct next step should have been a Parliamentary debate on whether...
...the UK should leave, or #RemainInTheEU. That, as far too few MPs will admit, is their job. They should make decisions on our behalf.
The majority of them know we should not leave the EU, because they know how much harm it will do to everyone but a few very rich people.

People keep saying we should have a vote on the #Brexit "final deal".
I don't think we should wait. Why not?
1/ We already know there is NO version of #Brexit that wouldn't do us all (apart from the very rich) real damage. If we #RemainInTheEU, we can get on with
repairing the damage that #Brexit has already done, which is considerable, and carry on with improving things for all Europeans.
2/ I suspect May's plan is to run us out of time, so we crash out with no deal, and hence no time to vote on it. All her delaying tactics have been

Here's a thought or two for all you sensible #FBPE people...
Perhaps we should not place so much emphasis on demanding a vote on the "final deal".
In the first place, there's a quite high probability that May will either prove to be incapable of getting that far, and she might
not even intend to. It's quite possible she intends to delay until we crash out of the EU with no deal at all.
Secondly, we have a clear case, with good, solid evidence, that the very narrow "win" in the advisory referendum was totally invalid. Given that the win was dishonest,

About 40 years ago, a mate of mine got a job with @IBM. Come and join us, it's great, says he. I didn't get a job with them. Maybe it was the shoulder - length hair, or something, but for quite some time now, I have been very glad not to have worked for such a horrible company.
I'm currently watching somebody who has been making money for the vile @IBM for several years, and is currently busy helping one of their biggest customers to cope with the steady stream of failures they are paying @IBM for. Supposedly, the person is now "redundant", an obvious
