Theresa May has ‘postponed’ the ‘meaningful vote’ in Parliament on her duff Brexit deal. Does she mean ‘cancelled’?

Lying again: Theresa May was adamant that she would go ahead with the “meaningful vote” on her dire Brexit agreement – but now she has postponed (perhaps cancelled) it.

She said the vote on her Brexit agreement was definitely going to happen on Tuesday (December 11) – and government aides backed her up on it.

So of course, Theresa May is postponing it.

She has a history of denying allegations until she’s blue in the face and then acting in accordance with them – consider the run-up to the general election of 2017.

The question is: Will she ever put the “meaningful vote” back on the Parliamentary schedule – or will she risk being found in contempt of Parliament again?

And what does this mean for democracy? She would dearly love to avoid putting the deal up for Parliamentary approval as Parliament very clearly opposes it in the strongest terms. Without the vote, she could just push it through, no matter how bad it is for the country, and damn the consequences.

Are we living in a democracy? Or are we slaving under Dictator May?

    Would it be too cynical to think that the reason she has done this today, rather than tomorrow, is to divert attention away from Labour’s Urgent Question about the Tories use of public funds for a clandestine smear campaign against Jeremy.

  2. Growing Flame

    I want a General Election, too. So I don’t mind Labour spokespeople sticking the boot into May and the Tory Party and emphasising the government’s chaos and deceit.

    But, in the end, isn’t blaming “the politicians” a real cop-out? Time and again, we see Leavers being interviewed on the BBC and they all bleat about “the politicians ” and how they should “just sort it out” without a clue themselves about the difficulties of trying to get a “good” deal when NO deal will be better than actually being in the EU.(And reforming it from within, I hope). It seems that hard-line Leavers still think it’s just a matter of leaving, like leaving a Golf Club when you aren’t happy with restrictions on your game.

    They don’t seem to notice that the problems come when trying to actually implement Brexit. When trying to compromise between :—–

    1) a very narrow vote to Leave and….
    2) avoiding all the damage that vote will produce.

    I have no sympathy for May and her Party, tearing themselves apart trying to reconcile two irreconcilable positions.
    But I despair of the Leavers who don’t seem to take responsibility for their own decisions. It’s too easy to vote for chaos then throw their hands in the air when it all goes to pot around them. It’s never their fault!
