The Commons Speaker has refused a government request to hold a “yes” or “no” vote on its Brexit deal.
The man who allowed three votes on the first deal, that was voted down three times by the parties wanting a second referendum, has delayed what would effectively be a fourth vote over two deals, put forward by the Governments third Prime Minister since the first referendum.
John Bercow said a motion on the deal had been brought before MPs on Saturday, and it would be “repetitive and disorderly” to debate it again.
The first deal, that was put before the second Government since the first referendum, by the second Prime Minister, since the first referendum, was rejected three times, by the opposition wanting a second referendum. This then forced the second resignation by a Prime Minister, since the first referendum, but not a second general election, but rather a second tory leadership contest, since the first referendum, instead.
The Government wanted to hold a “yes” or “no” vote – or so-called “meaningful vote” – on its deal on Saturday,
This would have been the third Prime Minister’s, since the first referendum, first opportunity, to put the Government’s second deal, before the second Government, since the first referendum. However, the Opposition elected to delay the first vote on the second deal until the legislation on the second deal, crafted by the Third Prime Minister had been first entered into law.
John Bercow, stated that insufficient change in “Substance and Circumstances” had occurred to allow a vote
So it turns out, Saturday’s debate was actually the first vote on the second deal, since the first referendum, put before the second government, which the opposition, who want a second referendum defeated the Government for the fourth time since the first referendum.
So where does this leave us?
Will the third Prime Minister, since the first referendum, continue with the Governments second deal, hoping that the Opposition will finally cave in on the fifth attempt to ‘Get Brexit Done’, or will the Third Prime Minister resign, spark a third Tory Leadership contest since the first referendum, prompting the creation of a fourth Tory Prime Minister since the first referendum, or a first emergency Prime Minister since the first referendum, who will probably want a second referendum?
On second thoughts……
