Oh yeah, I’d forgotten about her.

She’s not been in charge since a year ago last summer.

One point often lost in the great Seaborne scandal:

How did a company with no ships, no background in shipping & only £66 & a website in assets even become aware of the secretive bidding process in the 1st place?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Their terms and conditions - that form part of a legal contract with users and customers - were copied from a pizza delivery company website. You can throw as much doubt at this as you like, but this is transparent government corruption and you don't care about it.

I thought biggy loved pizza-related conspiracies as well.

evens: "There's corruption but it's nothing to do with Brexit"
15/4 (on):   "There's corruption but it doesn't matter"

It’s farcical. The whole sudden panic no deal Brexit planning is only meant to scare MPs into voting for May’s awful deal.

And it won’t work.

David Davis was saying he thinks May will delay the vote again, though I don’t agree. That’s one step too far even for her.

The other story going around is that May’s going to keep taking the deal back to the commons until they give in and vote the bloody thing through.

That's staggering incompetence yes, and if there's nepotism involved I wouldn't be surprised. But if you're trying to convince me this is anything but a trivial sideline to the fundamental issues at stake here then no, I'm not interested. If I didn't think you (the msm and remainers generally) were desperately trying to amplify literally anything you could find that supports your pathological hatred of Brexit and wish to overturn the referendum result anyway you can, I might take you and this more seriously.

But in 100 pages, of circular bickering, at least one person has been convinced to think in a slightly different way :)

Is that the MSM that have been really quite quiet on this massive fucking scandal? Pathetic.

I saw it on all the outlets I still bother with. And obviously the FBPE lot were squealing about it relentlessly on twitter, having suddenly become experts in shipping. And it's not really a massive scandal compared to the fundemental question of how our political system is run is it, its a controversy over a minor ferry service.

Anyway back to May, if she does try to delay again I think parliament will intervene. Everyone knows what she's up to now and I doubt even her own supporters are happy about it.

Hmm, yes it's been given quite a lot of coverage by the BBC for example.

How can Parliament intervene? I mean, literally, what is the mechanism for doing that?

Yeah it got all of  minute on the After Luther News tonight. I expect Andrew O'Niell will be all over it too.

I wouldn't know what the FBPE are excited about. Can't see why anyone wouldn't be bothered by this though, Well, I can.

I'm concerned about the plight of Eurozone countries like Greece, Italy and Spain - that's why I favour making them more dependent on the Eurozone and requesting that their citizens fuck off.

It was the first story on the news at ten on the day it broke and the restaurant terms and condition thing has been leading story on the hourly BBC news today.

I don't know if Corbyn could force a vote on stopping the delay again, which I think was what Bercow wanted the first time. But failing that, he could call a no confidence motion I guess.

There’s no mechanism per se. If the cabinet turned around with one voice it might make a difference.

I think just before it got delayed the first time it was said a minister could move it to a vote and maybe that might be what happens here.

Though, in theory, if Tory MPs wouldn’t support a no confidence vote she could sit there all year.

There aren’t two, let alone 10, Tory MPs who’d risk a Corbyn government. Every last one of them would vote against no-confidence. There’s no route to a second referendum, even if Corbyn considered it a policy priority.

A50 extension or no-deal. I wonder whether Parliament would sanction an extension though.

Will you be familiarising yourself with the workings of Parliament once it is newly sovereign?

I assume you're referring to this story.  I think it, like the insanity over Seaborne Ferries, is some hastily cobbled together guff to put the fear of god and hard Brexit up any MP toying with the idea of not voting for May's Deal. 

May should be trebucheted into the heart of the sun for playing chicken with something as serious as this.  Absolute stone cold cuntery.
