There is some sanity left in British politics after all.

 

---

 

MPs have inflicted another Brexit defeat on the government in Parliament by backing measures designed to thwart preparations for a no-deal exit.

 

They backed an amendment to the Finance Bill, which would limit spending on no-deal preparations unless authorised by Parliament, by 303 to 296 votes.

 

Jeremy Corbyn urged Theresa May to now rule out no deal "once and for all".

 

Twenty Conservative MPs rebelled against the government, including former cabinet ministers Michael Fallon, Justine Greening, Dominic Grieve, Ken Clarke and Oliver Letwin.

Probably the most sensible thing they have done in the past two years, and possibly the three years before that

Let's face it, there's no way we will leave without a deal, so if May's deal doesn't go through then what?

Yes, remainers will stop at nothing in their attempt to destroy democracy.

What has leaving, with a deal, got to do with destroying democracy? Sensational!

Not to mention a fundamental misunderstanding of the meaning of democracy!
