    Brexit.......Now there's got to be an Act Of Parliament to leave !

    Perhaps people should read what Vernon Coleman has to say.......
    Was Britain Taken Into The EU Illegally ?

    That wouldn't be a bad idea Bruv.

    I really am so fed up with the bloody delaying tactics and no doubt a certain amount of corruption that is going on at the moment. So much hassle. All I want is a bit of peace in the autumn of my years, but all I get is worry and increasing fear for the future.

    I just want to be more cheerful, like I used to be. To laugh at life, to feel more laid back. I used to be so laid back that I nearly fell over backwards ! Ah well I can only try, can only take no notice of the bad things that are happening in the world. I feel I've done my bit for society, the environment and human rights, so I have no conscience pricking if from now on I do absolutely nowt but look out for number one and my family.

    The best way to accomplish that goal is simply to stop reading/listening to the bloody News.
    Fretting over the crap that you can do nothing about is a waste of whatever valuable time we have left on this freaking rock.
    I, for one, had decided I am going to avoid TV and Radio News, and open my paper to the funny pages.

    The debate in the House will be interesting but the result is a foregone conclusion - Article 50 will be triggered in March. Nobody doubts that.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Indeed it was. My comment relates to Gill's "I really am so fed up with the bloody delaying tactics" of which there have been, so far, none at all. Beyond March it would be impossible to delay anything anyway, the countdown is in practice irreversible at that stage, but there have been no delays at all so far. Merely legal clarifications on the necessary process which haven't added so much as a day to the exit period. Allow me to predict: Brexit Day will be 1st April 2019.

    The negotiating period after Article 50 has been triggered, for the sake of clarity, is anything to a maximum of two years "unless the European Council, in agreement with the Member State concerned, unanimously decides to extend this period".

    I think I'm tired, spot. Too tired to really study all this politicing, so I'm not surprised I get stuff a bit wrong. As I said, I just want to experience a more peaceful environment. Perhaps, as Lars has said, I should take no notice of TV/Radio News, but the trouble is that I don't like to have the feeling of not being aware of potential problems, particularly local ones. I'll just have to cherry pick. Maybe I should just watch/listen to, the local stuff eh?

    This it from the Guardian website.
    Article 50 bill gets its Commons first reading

    The article 50 bill, or the European Union(notice of withdrawal) bill, to give it its formal title, has just had its first Commons reading.

    There is no debate at first reading. Instead, following the usual practice, the deputy Speaker, Eleanor Laing, announced: “Presentation of bill - Mr Secretary David Davis.” Davis, who was on the front bench, rose, and a clerk read out the title of the bill. Laing then said: “Second reading, what day?” A government whip shouted “tomorrow”, which is what they always say, even though the second reading is not tomorrow, but Tuesday next week. (I can’t remember why it happens like that; it’s one of the many barmy eccentricities of parliament.”

    This means the bill can now be published.

    It is very very important that Parliament be made responsible for voting to Leave. If that didn't happen, Parliament would become irrelevant and the Government (ANY Government) could do whatever it likes without any controls on it. They could decide never to have another election and could not be stopped, for example. It's actually more important than brexit or remain - whatever the result, we are still in a democracy but if Parliament ceases to be sovereign, then we are not really a democracy any more.

    Lone voice: "I'm not."
