So, those MPs who wish to oppose a Bill sometimes propose a "reasoned amendment" explaining why they oppose it. It is an amendment to the motion "that the Bill be read a second time" rather than the Bill itself.

Brilliant rant by Mitch Benn (no, miner, no relation) on Twitter this evening.

Preacher might faint at some of the language.

Whether the Article 50 process is reversible is currently the subject of litigation, currently before the Irish courts, with the intention that it should be ultimately considered by the CJEU.


i am not at all clear how it could properly be raised in an Irish court. Courts generally and sensibly decline to answer pure hypotheticals.
