    UK Politics: A Third Meaningful Thread

    My MP was a remainer in one of the more pro EU parts of Kent. Now she just follows the party line, hoping to get a ministerial post back after she was sacked from Sport for getting 0/10 in a quiz with local news. Irish Republicans who want nothing to do with parliamentary UK politics, maybe?

    “It’s not my fault, it’s someone else’s” basically No rhetoric more vomit inducing than that “You believe this...” device.

    That is her strategy to deal with remainers, but her strategy to deal with the no-dealers has always been the opposite - take it to the last second and make them think it is her deal or no Brexit. That has been thrown out the window now, they have no need to vote for her deal as they will get what they want if they don’t.

    I’m going for “deliver the will of the people”, “my deal is the best that could be negotiated” and a promise of cross party talks that will never happen on my May’s address to the nation Bingo card tonight.

    French media reporting Macron has decided to turn May’s request for an extension down.

    Fuck off Millwall. Justice served for all the shit decisions pushing them this far and that assualt at the end of extra time. Shame it had to be Romeo missing a crucial penalty.

    Three straight rounds Chelsea get the easiest draw possible

    Slavia Prague knock out Sevilla 6-5 on aggregate with their winner coming from a goalmouth scramble in the last second of extra time. Such a brilliant competition. First time Sevilla have lost a tie in it since 2011. Earlier Frankfurt put in the last perfect European away performance to beat Inter 1-0. Didn’t allow the Italians a sniff and could have had two or three more themselves.

    UK Politics: Time Marches On

    The extension vote today was with the understanding there would be a ‘managed’ no deal at the end of the extension, so it was chucked in with the other no deal stuff.

    The vote was non-binding and the default position is still no deal, but it is some progress.

    In light of the first amendment the government has put a three line whip to vote against its own motion. Absolute madness.

    Losing 7-0 at City is about 1% as embarrassing as losing 4-0 at home to Fortuna Düsseldorf. 10-2 on aggregate is about par for Schalke at the minute. Slightly underwhelming England squad. Can’t believe Trippier is still in ahead of Wan-Bissaka. Maddison deserved a look in as does Ward-Prowse on current form.

    After the attack, Grealish scores the only goal of the game to win it for Villa. The Hamburg derby was a little underwhelming on the pitch by contrast. St Pauli were very poor and HSV ran away with it 4-0.

    A Birmingham ran on the pitch and punched Grealish in the Second City Derby. Admirable restraint from Grealish in leaving it to the stewards rather than reacting himself.
