As has been said before. Parliament represents the referendum result with remarkable accuracy, no clear direction or majority one way or the other. Hence the current impasse.
Of course, your average brextremist will vehemently disagree.
I really hope that the next UK PM to be a die hard brexiter. Negotiations will be so easy .... There won't be any, the EU holds the cards in deals with the EU.

Lots of amusing banter here, but nobody has asked the really important question: Is it scone (as in cone) or scone (as in gone)? :spin: Scone as in gone is the correct pronunciation.

Reading through the code and ettiquite for the American flag, two things jump out at me: The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored so that it might be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.

The answer is a mix of all the above: Airbus didn't want to include any during the design phase due to increased weigh and maintenance cost. The FAA objected and insisted it had a pair so Airbus obliged. The pair are on the inboard engines, as they are closer to the centre line and therefore cause l...Jump to post

Nope, the aircraft being pushed restricts it. It takes 9 men (3 on each main gear, 2 on nose wheel, plus dispatcher/walker) to push a Sukhoi Superjet, 12 for a CRJ (6 per wing).
Anything larger, forget it. Too heavy and too few places to push safely.

I guess we should agree to disagree, but the one verifiable fact is the UK has an uncodified UK constitution and as such UK parliamentary sovereignty has been recognised to have unlimited legislative power, although the vote at referendum was non-binding it still needed parliament approval to be ac...Jump to post
Book yourself onto a "fear of flying" course. Most major airlines run them, a lot of major airports do too.

Still can't grasp what an advisory vote is ay? I'd say Parliament is doing a rather spectacular job of representing the result of the referendum.

You got that wrong. If the UK does not sign a deal and does not revoke Article 50, no deal it is. British parliament can only vote against the the no deal by voting for something else that can be agreed on by both parties. Nothing to do with the default provisions now. Parliament have committed to ...Jump to post
The choices are: No deal exit - Voted down by Parliament so won't be happening, by default or otherwise.
