Prorogation.

The latest method mentioned to attempt to overrule parliament to facilitate Brexit by 31st  October, with or without a deal.

Under this procedure the UK Parliament can be suspended by the incoming Prime Minister ( take you pick from 11 contenders ), to a date post 31st October allowing for a " No Deal " Brexit  .

Should be interesting if this is attempted !

Maybe we can whittle the list of contenders down by eliminating the drug users and serial adulterers.

Mind you, only 124.000 conservative members get to choose the prime minister who does the dirty on Parliament.

Hardly democratic ;-)

Job Description of the President of the Galaxy: Douglas Adams 

"… one of the major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them. To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary; anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem."

"Proro", as political commentators have abbreviated it to, was ruled out by the Speaker of the Commons as quickly as Dominic Raab, one of the original "contenders" suggested it.  And because his words amused me no end at the time and still do, I thought I'd include John Bercow's comments here:

"That (proro) is simply not going to happen.  It is just so blindingly obvious that it almost doesn’t need to be stated, but apparently it does and therefore I have done,” he told MPs." 🤣

I know it seems a long time ago now, but voting to rule out a "no deal" Brexit was the only "meaningful vote" which Parliament supported.  So suspending Parliament now to force a no deal Brexit seems highly unlikely.

Still, what's that saying about a week being a long time in politics?  I think "week" should be replaced with "day "...... 😉

Esther McVey says if she was to become PM.the measure is within her Toolbox.

I foresee a Sledgehammer and a nut at the top of her toolbox hidden under the stairs at No.10.

Convenientl for her to use one to crack the other .

Love the last quote Villas, quite appropriate for the next PM, they seem to think there is another "deal" to be done with the EU when they have already stated that negotiations are over.
