"I thought he's played an absolute blind to there because it by doing it to you probably don't need to do this. But once the notary world, I'm digging by doing it to the business motion. It was attached to any debate any sort of member. There was coming out of a big on any motion that was coming out of section thirteen or the withdrew. And I just meant any part of the debate on her trying to leave go amendments attached to it was like super version of Henry Benz amendment. It's really really clever stuff. He's a smart one grief. However today, you don't wanna bit tits up. Never taught like I do. I'm so sorry. Insecure very badly paid employment and journalism. And. Wrong. And the reason for that was this weird constitutional theory that popped up this morning and then by the afternoon lawyers for the house of Commons. We're saying that it was true. And it was to say that there's actually a kind of a Rinku in the way that things a framed to sort of time ticking time bombs that you have to look at the first one is if she gets a deal, and it's down by the Commons this twenty one days, and then a minister has to come up and go there's no deal when I'm putting the statement here. And then there would be amendments quitting degrees. The other one the other part of that the other ticking time bomb was what if she didn't get a deal in Europe? And after that you had into the twenty first of January for a minister to come to go, look, there's no deal. And then you'd have the grieve amendments, however, neither of those things of current you happened. She has got to deal with the Europeans. But there is currently no vote that's going to come. She's refusing to say when it would even be and some lawyers that that means that there is now no reason that any minister has to come to make any statement. It's to the house of Commons, and therefore there's nothing to amend, and therefore there's no obvious parliamentary mechanism to stop them doing no deal before much. Now. I don't think that's true and must be another way of doing it opened its points out this sort of hovered around the Commons chamber today. And may didn't seem to believe it was true or had not understood what it was. She was being asked or had not been properly briefed on it, all she's separate legal advice. You know, that'd be a good part. So at the moment, it's not clear what the mechanism is last week. We knew what people's vote can do to make sure that we can solve this week. It's not entirely clear, and that's one of the reasons that today really can say property shifted me up the stuff that was going through in the comments today. I think we're in a much worse position today than we were at this time last week sorry, Tuesday, dos. We we as in remains a whereas in the remains and do so the British public. You can pick one of those. And europe. Pretty sucked and some people recognize it. Do you think that the Tories would let may fire another lection nothing will remove it seems nothing were removed for she will just stay and stay and stay. I mean, could you could you see flying another election or if one was four she would just have to go. No, she can't fight another an action because she. Lost of pretty in the last one. And I don't think anything has changed in the public's attitude towards may since then except to accept the perception that she's probably the least bad of a bad bunch, and that doesn't help when you fighting against an opposition. So. I think someone I think someone else would have to take is this to be bre Dutch -ly, she's my hotel currently..
