Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Two lies completed in one day. I'll take us out do or die by Halloween. Pass the programme notion or I'll pull the deal. These on top of the fact that he isn't dead in a ditch and that we are promised a customs border in the Irish Sea in spite of the fact that no Tory government could contemplate such a thing. So does anyone believe him when he assures us that workers' rights may be safely left to Parliament (presumably with him at the helm is what he's thinking), or that there's no chance of no-deal at the end of 2020?

You may be right about the second reading passing, DMcG. But had it failed, brexit might have been scuppered. I don't think there's much chance of major amendments such as a confirmatory vote or customs union succeeding. In either case he'll just pull the deal anyway. It's disappointing that there were enough Labour rebels to get the second reading through.
