The vote to cancel No Deal changes nothing. It’s not binding. All it has done is revealed those MPs who have betrayed us. A nice little list of people who will be shortly be discovering some additional uses for piano wire.*
Here is the traitor’s list:
Grantham and Stamford
Truro and Falmouth
Hitchin and Harpenden
North East Bedfordshire
South West Hertfordshire
Finchley and Golders Green
Hastings and Rye
North East Hertfordshire
South West Devon
Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale
Plus a load of Labour and TIG scum.
As I said the other day, the ERG need to pull the plug and bring the government down if there’s a threat of a delay. And this might just happen:
Tom Newton Dunn says ERG could back Labour in a no confidence vote next week, if PM pushed to a long delay #newsnight

But the short delay is also risky, as the government will use that to try and get the wretched Withdrawal Agreement through a third time, and perhaps the frightened little bunnies will vote for it that time.
*Metaphorically speaking, if you’re the police reading this.
