What's been amended on the bill to make them want to pass it now?

Nothing. It's expected that the commons will almost immediately send it back on Monday without the amendments again and the Lords will just wave it through this time around.

Odd, what's suddenly made everyone so confident that the Lords will just pass it. Do they really give up that easily?

I wouldn't be at all surprised if May has threatened them behind closed doors to do something like flood the Lords with pro-Brexit Tory peers and then work to abolish the HoL entirely if they dare to defy her on this again.

I was reading an article in The Times today about us triggering article 50 on Tuesday and they seemed to say the PM needed to send a letter.
Can we claim we sent the letter but it got lost in the post and as we only have one letter Brexit is now cancelled?

Perhaps they should employ Yodel to be the courier.

On a serious note it just seems odd that such an important process is started with a letter and I wonder if we'll ever see it as it must rank as one of the most important letters in history.

I was chatting with some friends yesterday and three of them were Leave voters. One of them brought up that he is regretting voting leave now as "prices are going up, Apple products especially!". :lol: He's not the most politically astute person but it amazes me that somebody would vote knowing nothing about it and then say that they regret it because their new iPhone cost most than they were expecting. :fp:

The other two are still sticking by their decision, one of them was the person I have mentioned before who voted leave because "I fancied a change". :slol:

They rejected calls for the government to protect the status of EU nationals within three months of the start of Brexit talks by 335 votes to 287.

Is there anyway of finding out why each individual mp has voted on these brexit bills. It's quite interesting that there's always 200 plus mps voting against the government but both the tory and labour parties officially support brexit so i wonder what the breakdown is of their party membership.

Even as a leave voter I find it incredible that MPs would vote to NOT have a meaningful say on the final deal. That's just pathetic and makes this entire parliamentary process a complete waste of time.

Yeah i find it odd. Prior to the vote i always assumed that parliament would automatically have a vote on it anyway so i was very surprised that they didn't. In no way ever did i believe that the referendum was binding in anyway like some people did.

It just seems this whole parliamentary process is now a complete waste of time and money. I don't see why the MPs bothered to debate any of it and then decide they don't want a vote on the final deal. It just doesn't make sense at all.
