House of Lords Rejects Fillibuster Which Would Have Prevented the No-Brexit Bill; House Expected to Pass the Bill and End Brexit

Okay, technically, that headline isn't true -- the bill is supposed to stop a no-deal Brexit.

But that means that they'll never exit the EU, because the EU refuses to offer them anything but a punitive deal which the entirety of Parliament has rejected four times now (I think) by huge margins.

So:

if the EU will not offer a deal that the British politicians want to be seen agreeing to (they actually do want to agree to it; they think of the British people as serfs and don't mind if the EU serfifies them further),

and the only way out is through no-deal,

but this bill is designed to make a no-deal Brexit illegal,


That means that Brexit is cancelled.

Or it will be, if the House of Lords acts as expected and passes this travesty.

Who cares how the people voted? The only people who matter are the corporate/media classes. The rest of you exist to be farmed by them for taxes.

We should know by tomorrow (morning, I think -- 10 am GMT) if they decided to repeal democracy.

Well ... they are "subjects" who like to have their government spying on them at every single street corner and alleyway.

Personally, I don't care if they stay in the EU or leave. It makes no difference to me. What I want to see is some justice brought on the Brits who engaged in the coup to try and stop and then overthrow Trump. I'd like to see Steele and whoever else over there was involves (and there are many since most of the Brits loved Barky) start dropping like flies in teh street and just disappearing from sight (never to be heard from again). That's what I really care about. They can stay in the EU or leave ... who gives a shit?

15 Most popular baby name in Britain 2017 was... Mohammed.
But because it's spelled 68 different ways, they rank it at *#10* and all the other spellings in the place wherever they rank. In fact, not only is it the #1 name, it's ahead of "Oliver" by 1,000 namings... 7,300 to 6,300.

33 The EU - and the British ruling class system that is strangling the effort to exit the EU - are the default ruling system that man has known since he crawled out the cave. Call it feudalism, serfdom, socialism, monarchy, aristocracy, communism - pick the name you prefer, they're all the same. A foot stamping on a human face, forever.

The one rare outlier - American exceptionalism- is being ground under as we speak.

The sad reality is that in the end, evil wins. And it wins because it is active, on the offense, all the time, while good is generally passive and reactive and just wants to be left alone.

Also, he's a super-super-hero. Conan can kill, say, six good fighters in a fight; in the first book (last in the chronology) Elric literally killed 100+ non-human/possibly immortal beings in a long fight.

90 One thing that will definitely happen is that when the next election happens, which must happen by May 5, 2022, the Tories will no longer run the government.

The question is whether it will be BRexit party or Labour.

This stunt to force remain down the throats of the people who voted for independence is not going to help Labour win that election. This is going to remain a festering boil on the ass of British politics until it is resolved by either abject submission of the voters to the EU, or the complete dismantling of the existing government.

I want to think there is still some spine left in the UK, but I don't see much evidence in anyone other than their voters.

Labour has said they wouldn't agree to a general election unless this bill was given royal assent, i.e. passed into law.

House of Commons already voted for the bill. House of Lords are going to hold a vote on it. Assuming it passes into law, yes Boris loses the hard Brexit / no-deal Brexit option -- BUT, now there can be a general election, which I assume will be a pseudo referendum on Brexit.

So there's still a slim chance for Brexit.

His lips were thin, his eyes were slits, his fingers were thin, his hair was thin, and the scalpel he held was thin too, almost invisible, save when it flashed in the light from the fire which erupted from a pit on the far side of the cavern. The artist was named Doctor Jest and the art he practiced was a performing art rather than a creative one: the art of drawing secrets from those who kept them. Doctor Jest was the Chief Interrogator of Melnibone."

Well, either it will or it won't .

A bunch of Tories crossed the aisle to side with the Liberal Democrats, kind of a centrist (UK style) alternative to Labor, which are just about full on Islamic commies, judging by Jeremy Corbyn.

I guess that Boris should roll the dice and find out.

What's the point if the people may have changed their collective minds?

I read that passage when I was a kid, my only youthful effort to read Elric, and put it down because i thought it was sadistic and morbid.

But Elric isn't actually sadistic. He is just born of a very sadistic and decadent race/species.

You might try reading the Elric stories in the order in which Moorcock wrote them, rather than arranged chronologically from Elric's perspective. That would allow you to skip the first book for some time. I think the first story written is the first one in the third book arranged chronologically.

Not much was said about it in the Fake News because they were taken aback as they though Crenshaw was total conservative.

198 A national strike should be in order but it won't happen. Why? Not just apathy, although there is much of that, but legitimate fear. Brits know full well that they would suffer horribly, and perhaps be killed, if such a strike were to look potentially successful. We "won" the Cold War only to live in a totalitarian system. What's the difference between London and Hong Kong? Nothing if the rulers feel threatened.

If anyone wants to understand the sudden push for gun control look no further than the UK. The ruling class here has started to acknowledge there will be violence if they send their thugs door to door to seize guns. I'm not so certain people even will resist, but either way, the ruling class doesn't care.


This is the most prosperous time in human history and the Darker Ages approach. Hard to square those two things.

229 The House of Lords thing is a little weird. They probably could have filibustered the bill until Parliament was prorogued on Sept. 9. Not sure the calculation behind the stand down order.

I suppose it's because most the UK is a bit ashamed about the House of Lords still existing, so Boris "winning" via House of Lords maneuvers would be bad politics. Plus, still there's still some chance for a pre-Halloween general election. Boris gets a majority in that, then he can repeal this surrender bill.

They have to be reined in, educated, and shown the true power of a fully functioning Brussels. The Betters know better. That will teach those silly wankers that Sovereignty and Democracy were just silly words that some unwoke White Males wrote down (no doubt in an opium-addled haze) on some papers at some time in the past.

272 Bans aren't announced anymore. They just "happen".

Get this - I have a back-channel to a couple COBs. There is no "official document" in circulation regarding banning.

It's just a COB, or COBs, doing their own personal project.

Posted by: The White Devil at September 05, 2019 09:34 PM (AzTx0)

When you try to comment at a banned IP (not a Pixy-Banned one) the site will tell you that you're banned and your post will never appear.

I'm speaking from experience as I was formally banned for about a week a couple years ago and whenever I tried to comment an error screen would pop up informing me that I had been banned and that I should contact Ace or Pixy if I believed the ban was wrongful.

You are never wrong to assume that Joe is wrong, either in his facts or in his interpretation, so I went and looked. Man the pound has been falling against the Dollar since 2007, and against the Euro since 2000.

The pound has issues.

372 Parliament cannot ban no-deal Brexit, because that is the EU's default position. Parliament required Boris to seek a three-month extension, and to agree to whatever extension EU asks for if they provide a different date.So yes it would be a cancelling of Brexit.
However, the filibuster was going well, and Boris asked them to stop. He is up to something. There is something called royal assent which Boris can deny, and keep the bill from passing.
He can also just refuse to do as Parliament says.

374 Ace,
According to Mish Shedlock and a legal opinion by the London School of Economics, Boris pulled a fast one on the Remainers, because the latest bill - the Burt Benn bill will trigger a Constitutional procedure in which the government-meaning PM Boris Johnson -must approve the bill- which he won't of course.

According to this analysis Boris got what he wanted:
A. He will likely get a clean Brexit
B. He has forced out the Remainers out of Tory party so he can form a clean alliance with the Brexit Party
C. He will likely force an election where the opposition will have to defend the Burt Benn bill which doesn't allow Britain to negotiate with the EU- an untenable position.

This is not the end of the world, but a victory in the end for Brexit and Boris Johnson. He faked out the Remaiiners into pushing this bad bill which they now must defend.

376 This bill is symbolic at most. The Queen may veto it; but even if she signs it, it will be followed by an election, the Tories and/or Brexit party will win, and then they repeal the bill in time for a Halloween Brexit.

Posted by: jdgalt at September 05, 2019 10:09 PM (3SFo/)

377 That procedure is called the Queen's consent. The government - meaning Boris must give his consent for the bill to become law.

Posted by: Mitch H. at September 05, 2019 10:56 PM (JpPA+)

383 I'm a little late on this but I think the bill actually requires the government to seek an extension to negotiate a deal. The EU can always tell the U.K. to take s long walk off a short pier, assuming the EU has simply gotten sick of the UK's shit.

And I do recall several European leaders making noises some months back that they couldn't and wouldn't extend Brexit indefinitely. Article 50 has been invoked and they'll need to either piss or get off the pot.

392 There are still some options I believe, some of where were defined by Unsk (#374). Boris has boldly claimed we would no deal brexit on Halloween do or die, thats a bold claim and he so far hasn't appeared rattled.

The Optimist in me says this is all just cover fire keeping the opposition busy thinking they are blocking Boris' every move while he has already moved his pieces into place and they are untouchable.

Boris has cornered Corbyn who after 2 years of demanding an election has turned and run from one. In the event of an election, the common sense thing to do is

* Partner with The Brexit Party for the areas where they would never vote Tory, but they are strong Leave areas.
* The Brexit party won't run candidates in areas where there is a Leave Tory running
* The few ex-Labour MPs that are pro-Leave can run in pro-Leave areas that are strong Labour.

As for the death of the UK compared to the US, as someone who has spent 15 years in the US, we are both in very similar positions. A crazy left wing elite with a complicit media and

Many folk are conservative and most of those that claim they are not may identify as Democrat or Labour, but think conservative, but most of those people have families to feed and jobs to do while the remaining moonbat left are funded by the tax payer, unions and wealthy donors to go out and stir things up.

However, like the US has Trump, we have Boris, someone who finally has made moves to drain the swamp. While it is a long road, there is some optimism that the Tory party could get cleaned up.

Similarly, the US has a government that seems more interested in catering to illegals and special interests than the people, we have a government that is more interested in handing unchecked power to the EU. These minority opinions are just that.

Don't underestimate how many people this has pissed off. I see angry posts on Facebook from people that rarely talk politics, and I myself, having never protested in my life and looking for events to go and show these assholes how pissed off the people are.
