The illustrious Daily Mail...

.. has this morning stated on it's paper copy front page that...

"MPs overwhelmingly backed Brexit last night with a historic vote in the Commons. By a margin of 461 to 89 they supported a motion to start the process of leaving the EU by the end of March".

Now, I don't know about you, but to me that reads that it's all done and dusted, and the Express is saying similar.

For the record, what actually happened was that Theresa May won the overwhelming backing of MPs for her timetable to start Brexit talks in March 2017, but only after first agreeing to publish a plan setting out her objectives and promising MPs a vote on the final “divorce deal”.

Labour agreed to back the prime minister’s timetable for Brexit but insisted Mrs May should first publish a detailed negotiating strategy. Some pro-EU Conservative MPs said a white paper, a thorough policy document, should be produced in the new year.

 
This is a slightly different proposition from the Daily Mail's take. Mrs Maybe has always been reluctant to publish the details of what she proposes, which means that if she persists to the dissatisfaction of the majority of MPs, then the vote will go against the triggering of Article 50. 
 
So, DM, you can try to fool some of the people all of the time, but some of us actually know what the score is!

Re: The illustrious Daily Mail...

That's a lot of SNP!

Yesterday's Supreme Court hearing apparently heard some "significant" arguments from both the SDLP and the SNP. There's a long way to go methinks!

Re: The illustrious Daily Mail...

And by the same token the BBC ran with the report that "Brexit could not go ahead" lifting in isolation and out of context a part presentation to those judges.

Even the BBC twists the news...... and that's no defence of Express by the way.

Yes I noticed that as well. Those who are writing the copy for the BBC seem rarely to fully grasp what they are writing about.

Re: The illustrious Daily Mail...

Well @rongtw, I could just about forgive my own Plaid Cymru MP for siding with Labour in order to keep Carwyn Jones as first Minister here in Wales, but not over his opposition Brexit.

Fingers crossed for a Monster Raving Loony Party candidate in 2020 Thumbs Up

Re: The illustrious Daily Mail...

And a number of Labour MP's voted against the bill despite a majority of those who voted for them supporting britexit.

Guess they will be in for a few negative comments when knocking on doors for support at the next general election.
