And so it begins. I've also heard this rumour from the chair of our local Conservative Association. 2-May makes the General Election the same day as the local town and district council elections. I think the Tory party organisations have been told to prepare and be ready.

They need an excuse to use to request a delay on Art50 from the EU.

And Theresa May has already said she would stand down from being the party leader before the next general election. So this is where she gets to walk away as well?

It does all tie in with the sudden rash of newspaper front pages from the Tory faithful press about how she'd win big if there was an election now. Along with ramping up the character assassination of Corbyn.

And all in the hope that they can get a big enough majority to feed the DUP to the wolves.

What can I say? "Big, if true!".

I am sure that the Republic of #Ireland could form a customs union with the UK, independent of its one with the EU-26. It would be great to see greater union between the two states in the British Isles, which have a lot in common with each other.

I'm absolutely speechless. It's really hard to even know where to start, it's so wrong. Quite apart from the Good Friday Agreement, what part of "Union" in "European Union" doesn't he understand? It's almost (but not quite) as offensive as when Humphreys on the R4 Today program last week challenged the Irish Europe minister that Ireland should leave the EU and “throw in their lot with this country.”.

Con, Mr Mark Prisk MP, Hertford and Stortford
Key Vote (Brady): For - Rebel: No
Other votes:
Labour amendment - Against
Spelman amendment - Against
Cooper amendment - Against
Grieve amendment - Against
Reeves amendment - Against
Brady amendment - For
SNP amendment - Against

So that's following the party line, voting to pursue the impossible deal amendment and failing to reject the impossible "Leaving with No Deal". In a process that does nothing but waste time.

Once upon a time he was a Remainer. His constituency and county were very finely balanced in the referendum. Polls suggest both are now solidly remain. He promoted and apparently agreed with the Chequers plan. He voted for and promoted the Withdrawal Agreement that was thrown out by parliament.

The one thing he seems to be good at is producing posts and essays that explain exactly why the proposal from Tory head office is the best thing ever and so he's following the party line.

Tribal politics, eh? How bad and insane does it have to get before loyal Tory MPs like this one, vote for sanity and rebel rather than just following the party whips?
