Any remoaners taking up a free ride to Smokey Auld Laandaan for the anti-brexit blub waah fest? It's courtesy of our Champagne Campaigner and Colossal Club Matriarch 'Deals no Deals' remainer, who's personally funding the (hopefully eco-friendly) charabancs.....I also wonder if crates o' socialist stout will be supplied for the oiks trip daaarn?...... Toot Toot!....

Hope she don't miss the game against the cheerful Cherries?.....

I'll be there. It won't change anything but it will highlight that not everyone is stupid enough to fall for this crap.

Funny mentioning Ben Elton as he once described himself as a Clem Atlee Supporter. Well that's alright with me. The man responsible for the Welfare State has to be admired. And now people want to dismantle or privatise it.

Update

Tories 288

288

The rest

362

guess what ?

and that's assuming none of the ERG vote against whatever Bertie has cobbled together in the way of a deal

This looks like an absurd post to me, going to be an awful lot tighter than that in the real world.

oh dear, the numptoes are out in force

for lairy canary, the figure is not 23 short frt the Tories, as

Tories 288

the rest 352 ( who will vote)

64 so it needs 33 NOT as you state 23

aha, will be the bleat, that was the figures from the BBC site

I was too dim to check the basic maths

Maybe you should read the BBC article properly before you have the breathtaking arrogance to question Kuenssberg's figures? The article makes no mention of Johnson being 23 short.

It actually says that there are 23 ex-Tories and that Johnson needs their support along with all the 287 Tories. It then goes on to say 

That is still not quite enough, though, so the PM will also need the backing of some Labour MPs and ex-Labour independents. In March, when MPs voted on Theresa May's deal for the third time, five Labour MPs backed it, plus two ex-Labour independents.

 

Were those Labour MP figures to be repeated Johnson would then reach 317 votes - i.e. three short.

Why you need to have some simple arithmetic on a BBC website explained to you God only knows.

287 + 23 + 7 = 317.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-politics-50096668/crunching-the-numbers-on-key-brexit-vote 

This explains the article in little pictures if you're still struggling

Well don't attempt to climb on top of any tube train carriages when you get to London. The result might be a bit embarrassing but you'd get your 15 minutes of fame.

You RWNJs always struggle with nuance. Just because I agree with someone's stance doesn't mean I automatically agree with their actions. I thought this part of the protest was dumb and targeted the wrong people and thing. 

Hope that helps.

The good thing in for me is that no matter what the outcome of the vote on Saturday Boris has won. If he wins great, but if he loses then Labour now have no excuse for a general election, so bring it on. 👍

What Bill said was " he needs about 30 " looks like for all your nitpicking he was right about that.

Conservative 288 w/o any DUP = 288 

Total 650, less 7 Sin Fien and 1 Speaker  = 642

642 - 288  = 354

288 - 354 = Government "majority" of negative 66 

Where does he get 34 more votes, or 33 plus an abstention from, there are only 21 ex-Tories ...

 

If 21 Ex Tories and the 5 Labour and 2 ex Labour who voted for May's agreement vote for him that is 28. 

So he still needs 6, or 5 plus an abstention. .... maybe he will need the DUP after all... what will he offer?

If so 

If 21 Ex Tories and 9 Labour and 2 ex Labour who voted for May's agreement vote for him that is 32. 

So he still needs 2, or 1 plus an abstention. .... it will be close but then so was the referendum result.

The fact that you want to make your own mind up without looking at any of the facts comes as no surprise to anybody on here Swindon......................

It seems a shame that you have to follow someone else with their view, rather than make your own mind up !
