May WINS showdown and will try to force her deal through a THIRD time next week

MPs vote to DELAY Brexit: May WINS showdown and will try to force her deal through a THIRD time next week before asking EU to extend Article 50 - and it'll be six weeks if her plan passes or up to two years if it's blocked

Speaker John Bercow has selected four amendments to Theresa May's motion on delaying Brexit tonight

MPs have voted to reject a second referendum after the Labour Party and People's Vote deserted the move

The most significant amendment is to stage 'indicative' votes on what kind of Brexit Parliament would back

The votes are all part of a crucial build up to the EU Council next week when May will ask for a delay to Brexit

Donald Tusk will urge EU leaders to agree a 'long extension' to Article 50 to give Britain time to 'rethink'

With all this distraction, it's surprising that the Spaniards don't invade Gibraltar and the Irish don't invade Ulster.

1. The Falkland Islands are sleeping with one eye open

What a mess over there.

People who think America is exceptional in its circus of politics clearly has never lived abroad. England is often a total shitshow. An entertaining one, to be certain. When I lived there, I loved questions to the Prime Minister time. Seriously entertaining.

3. PM's question time is wonderful. The President should go to the House each week for question time.

Although it would require a lot of retraining of US Representatives to get them to actually ask questions instead of using their time to bloviate.

The Speaker of the House of Commons seems to be a role missing in the US. It is rather more focused on procedure, keeping order, and reducing extraneous nonsense than is the Speaker of the House. Can't imagine Pelosi doing Bercow's job.

4. Yeah, I like that they have a referee of sorts

Our politicians are always looking for campaign snippets.

Australia is also great fun. My ex lives there, and a few years ago I was seriously considering moving to Perth for us, so I started paying attention to their parliament. Also highly entertaining.
