    My name's an homage to the grammatically incorrect Wat Tyler, who led the Peasant's Revolt a mere 640-odd years ago. The avatar is the Monty Python crew having a bit of a moan about Pedants like myself. My pedantry is keen, but unskilled I'm afraid.
    My principal hobby is rugby, from which I retired (hurt) just over a decade ago; though I still follow the game, and support both the grass roots level, and Bath in the English top flight. I seem to be a much better supporter than I ever was as a player. I'm a fan of historical fiction and comedy, with Terry Pratchett and Bernard Cornwell as my favourite authors.

    I don't bake, knit, crochet, spin etc but I try to carry my weight about the house by being a keen, but unskilled (hmmm, that phrase seems to sum me up really) at gardening and DIY. I am, however engaged to Ali who does all of the that; though she rarely bakes - that's more for self-preservation of the waistline than anything else. She also has a tendency to steal my account log-ins for any discussion forum I use (most likely, if you see me posting in Dr Who, that'll be her); though I will make sure she doesn't use any of my mod-privileges.

    Beyond that.... I'm a chiropractor, and I work alongside Ali (massage therapist) as just the 2 of us in a small town that seems to spend half it's time under water since we moved here. We have 2 cats, 1 dog and 0 offspring are confirmed generation X-ers; and one of those lame-arse couples who got engaged a decade ago, but still haven't gotten around to actually getting married. My humour is generally inappropriate, but I enjoy bickering as well; so all's well that ends well.

    Yup. Not helped by our PM pouring oil on the flames, and then press branding people as traitors for doing their best to uphold our democracy

    4M up, ticking along at 50k per hour this Saturday morning 94% from UK constituencies, before the Leave Liars talk about bots. Is today's rally going to increase or decrease the rate?

    She killed any chance of passing her WA on Wednesday night when she threw her temper tantrum (again, it was almost word for word the same temper tantrum she's thrown during PMQs about 6 hours previously)

    Well, no - the first one is renegotiating the WA with closer ties and less obstinacy. The second, is a WA in a form that already exists - We'll go to EFTA whilst conducting the next decade of talks. There would also be the option of an off-the-shelf future relationship; which would only require a long enough extension to pass the necesary legislation, and not requiring further talks. Yes, the 3rd would require a much longer extension, and would be remaining in the EU whilst we try try to ditch May's mess and create a new WA.

    That's a different thing to "turnout" though. That's about the margin of victory. For changing the consitution of most countries there will be someonething along the lines of "you need 50%+1 of the elctorate" or "more than 60% of the vote" or something along those lines; not 50%+1 of those who actually vote. ETA: Beaten to it by HOI

    Wait - what? I;ve seen the precise opposite, but don't recall seeing any argument that the referendum turnout was low - given that 72.2% turnout was higher than any other British election for 20 years; and pretty close to the average turnout over the previous century (72.9%)

    Just on the bolded - that's not really true (IMO). If we come back with a proposal to withdraw May's red lines, remove May, and start again from scratch - there's a good chance it will be accepted. If we come back with a proposal that we actually want EFTA membership etc - that will almost certaily be accepted. If we come back with a proposal that parliament is deadlocked; so we're going back to the people, and need more time - that will almost certainly be accepted.

    Which would count as a rejection; giving us the April 12th date

    So that's April 12th IF the WA is defeated again; May 22nd IF it passes. Assuming Theresa agrees. Whilst there's another attempt for parliament to take itself over and have indicative votes (with EFTA+ appearing thr favourite). Is that right? Oh, and 2M is up

    Closing in on 2M, should happen before midnight, depending on further crashes and late night slow down. ETA, going glossy quickly at the moment, may be in about 15 minutes!

    Pretty much this. Since she came back with the deal she lost any benefit of the doubt I was giving her.

    Sounds like there's quite a bit of hostility towards May in Brussels today - from politicos, not protestors
