Femi.

Just remember... All this Brexit chaos, ministers resigning, a government in contempt of Parliament, a PM clinging to power at the expense of the country, referendum campaigns under criminal investigation, constant lies....

Re: Brexit consequences

"The ‘meaningful vote’ debate: still riddled with pretence, incoherence and fantasy." Perceptive post from Chris Grey, Professor of Organization Studies at Royal Holloway, University of London, and previously a Professor at Cambridge University and Warwick University.

It is hard to keep up with what is going on in The Commons. A recent tweet from David Allen Green. If the Crown ignores the will of Parliament we will now have, at long last, the first genuine constitutional crisis of Brexit. So far Executive/Legislature/Judiciary have resolved respective difference...
