The abuse travels at the speed of light, so it could be said to hurtle.

So the Lords have passed the amendment. A serious possibility/probability is that the EU in any event is incapable if reaching agreement, and even ore so the possibility that we reach no agreement with them.
Like a paper bag with a soggy bottom, we just fall out. There is no agreement - and nothing to refer back to Parliament. What do the amenders imagine happening?

The HoL just hammered another nail into their own coffin.

Exactly.

They really are being incredibly stupid as what is supposed to be a revision chamber acting responsibly and in accordance with the wishes of the Voters. 366 out-of-touch self-serving fools intent on promoting their own inadequate, inflated egos. It's quite disgraceful conduct.

But government minister Lord Bridges said once Article 50 had been triggered, the process of leaving the EU was irrevocable and the amendment was totally unclear on what would happen if the UK and the EU were not able to agree a formal deal on the terms of exit.

Whether Article 50 is irrevocable in law or practice is unclear.

The European Parliament will have a vote on the deal, but apparently it us undemocratic to ask for our Parliament to do the same. Taking back control my arse.

Then why did everybody involved in the recent case at Admn and the Supreme Court take this as a given? Were they all just playing silly buggers?
