Speaker of the House of Parliament Tells Teresa May, Stop Sending Us The Same Shit Brexit Deal

The third time will not be the charm.

The speaker of Britain's House of Commons dealt a potentially fatal blow to Prime Minister Theresa May's ailing Brexit deal on Monday, saying the government couldnít keep asking lawmakers to vote on the same deal they have already rejected twice.

The government intended to try a third time to get lawmakers to back the deal, ideally before May joins EU leaders Thursday at a Brussels summit where she is set to ask the bloc to postpone Britain's departure. May has warned opponents that a failure to approve her Brexit divorce deal would mean a long, and possibly indefinite, delay to Britain's departure from the EU.

Speaker John Bercow scuttled Mayís plan, saying that centuries-old parliamentary rules prevent "the same proposition or substantially the same proposition" from being brought back repeatedly for votes in a session of Parliament.

Apparently leaving Brexit with no deal at all now commands a plurality of support in the UK -- 44% back the no-plan plan.

Video of the speaker's statement here.

I've gotta admit, I don't know the details of the "deal" the EU is forcing on May (and which May seems to be complacently accepting), but the details sound terrible. May had previously taken the position that she would rather have no deal than a bad deal, but when the EU proposed a bad deal, she meekly said, "Okay."

This anonymous article from a UK civil servant says the "Brexit deal" is actually a backdoor effort to keep the UK in the EU forever -- but without any voting rights in that organization.

Voters may believe we need [this deal] in order to leave the EU. We do not. They could be fooled by the Prime Ministerís repeated claims that there might be "no Brexit" unless it is passed -- when of course Brexit will happen by default without it under the terms of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act. Voters might also be forgiven for believing that the Withdrawal Agreement settles our future trade relationship with the EU. Not in the slightest. Future trade talks remain just that -- in the future -- while May's "deal" keeps the UK legally shackled to a moribund EU economy which it must attempt to revive with vast sums of British taxpayers' money for an indeterminate number of years.

...

But credit where it's due: EU officials (ably abetted by their British allies) have produced a devilishly clever draft treaty which, if passed, would end Brexit and get Britain ready to board the express train to a United States of Europe.

The political takeover of the UK represented by the Withdrawal Agreement is an audacious attempt to reverse a damning popular vote of discontent with the European Project and provide fresh impetus for the federal superstate that is the EUís raison d'etre. The EU's triple lock guarantee is so constructed that never again will Brussels be troubled by an explosion of democracy in the United Kingdom. Parliament has one last chance to escape total eclipse -- and it is now, by rejecting the Withdrawal Agreement in its entirety.

Read that article's explanation of the "three locks" shackling the UK as a vassal state of Europe forever. It's hair-raising. This does indeed seem to be a viciously underhanded con by the UK establishment and May to put the UK back into the EU through the backdoor -- and as a vassal state, to boot!

But, at some point, the UK will realize that being a vassal state is even worse than their previous position and ask to be let back into the EU as a full member. But then the EU will demand more fees and also demand that the UK accept all EU laws.

This seems to be the real goal here.

The EU says it won't even continue negotiation for a couple of months -- unless the UK agrees to pay the EU one billion dollars per month of extended negotiations.
