MPs have backed a bill to block a no-deal Brexit, which could trigger Boris Johnson to seek a general election.
And it’s more bad news for beleaguered PM Boris Johnson as Tory MEPs in Strasbourg, are also voting for an additional Brexit Delay
Opposition MPs and Tory rebels ensured the bill passed its first stage by 329 votes to 300
“The time has come for progressive Conservatives to stand up for themselves”, stated Tory MEP Colin Insignificant, “Extending Article 50 is the sensible thing to do, in order to fully address the backstop issue, take no-deal off the table and enable MEPs to have full access to duty free champagne for annual the Christmas run”
MEPs get paid approximately €8700/month
“Many MEPs are disappointed at the Prime Ministers approach”, added Tory MEP Colin Invisible, “Plus the fact I could invest €25,000 in a lucrative off-shore tax free product, if we support the opposition position and extend Article 50 beyond Christmas”
The proposed delay to Brexit will extend the exit deadline to 31st January 2020
“The Christmas markets here are just delightful”, enthused Tory MEP Lady Colina Forbes-Nepotism, “and with the Pound collapsing against the Euro, one is ‘quids in’. It’ll be cuckoo clocks and glühwein all round in the Forbes-Nepotism household this yule”, the previously anonymous politician elated, before heading off to a cocktail soiree with previously alleged members of The News of The World Staff.
Christkindelsmärik is a Christmas market held annually in Strasbourg
“The Fairy Lights, the seasonal aromas, the sonic delights of sleigh bells, but enough of Michael Gove’s Summer Balls. Why would anyone want to stop privileged, selected individuals from enjoying one last European Christmas Market”, Tory MEP Sir Nigel Public-School pleaded, “Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to stick the whole family inheritance into a Crispin Odey backed hedge fund”.
