The commons debate

Post by chaggle » Thu Dec 06, 2018 1:29 pm

Anybody else watching?

I'm impressed with the way it's being conducted - nothing like the bear-pit of PMQs

I'm finding it all very interesting.

Of course it all means nothing until the vote - will all this talking change any minds? Is that the point of it?
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con

Or just trying to state their position on this most vital of topics.

As someone once responded to a question about why parliamentary debates were going on for so long: "Everything has been said, but not everyone has yet said it".

I can't be bothered to watch. I saw my MP (Sarah Jones, Labour) and her contribution was very sensible and well made (she's not voting for this mess). But I doubt she said anything different to dozens of other Labour MPs.

If a single MP changes their mind over the days of debate it will be because of some external factor, not a brilliant point made in the chamber.
