I reckon all that Portuguese sun must have gone to his head.

Perhaps that's why he's "Red" Eric.

No - that's still playing-out now - they'll have been royally f***ed over if the elites manage to crush brexit and disenfranchise their vote.

It wasn’t legally binding but evidently even Mrs May didn’t want to be in charge of the first government to be found in contempt of Parliament. She threw Geoffrey Cox right under the bus - poor chap was nearly in tears in the Commons today. Not impressed.

How so? In a rare and stupid experiment with direct democracy the electorate voted for lies and they've been given lies - so all's well.
Brexit reminds me of the brain surgeon's report ...... the operation was a success but the patient died.
Now, after today's thrashings, the would-be authoritarians have been told to "go away" and the UK returns to being the representative democracy it always was - Parliament taking back control.....

Dominic Grieve thinks not :
Grieve said: “MPs are tonight starting the process of taking back control. No longer must the will of parliament – reflecting the will of the people – be diminished. Parliament must now take back control and then give the final decision back to the public because, in the end, only the people can sort this out.”
Theresa May staggers on after three Brexit defeats in single day

Or do you stick with Theresa's deal?
