May hasnít been inept.

She has never, never has a hand to play here. Her country wish to leave. What interest would the EU have in smoothing this over, and handing out sweeteners?

What a second referendum would allow the UK to do is decide whether itís worth continuing with the process, now we are all better informed.

May has been completely useless, utterly inept and totally incompetent. Called a GE she didn't need to, which got her into this mess in the first place. Invoked Article 50 without thinking through the consequences of it. Tried to kowtow to the hard Brexiteers/ERG and suit everyone instead of telling them to get stuffed. Made a fool of herself running around European capitals trying to get some form of concessions which weren't ever going to be forthcoming. Announced tonight she intended to reach across the house and seek consensus on what would get agreement, 2 years too late. She is one of the most hopeless, clueless politicians I've ever seen and that's saying something.

How come Eileen's doing the News on 9 tonight? Sharon throw another hissy?

"Arlene Foster, the DUP leader, has welcomed the result of tonightís vote. In a statment she said:

By rejecting the withdrawal agreement, parliament has acted in the best interests of the entire United Kingdom.

The House of Commons has sent an unmistakable message to the prime minister and the European Union that this deal is rejected.

Mrs May will now be able to demonstrate to the Brusselsí negotiators that changes are required if any deal is to command the support of parliament ...

Reassurances whether in the form of letters or warm words, will not be enough. The prime minister must now go back to the European Union and seek fundamental change to the withdrawal agreement."

You tell 'em Arlene. The EU is no match for your lot of match-hardened punters.

May will try to blackmail through a deal yet.

i) She'll try to get the backstop dropped. This could go down to the last week with the full weight of British imperial arrogance brought to bear on the Irish government. Leo Varadkar and Simon Coveney could well become public enemies number one and two in the British press come March. Anti-Irish feeeling in Britain could get extremely nasty.

ii) Meanwhile, Corbyn has one chance left to shift ground to favouring a second referendum, and that's when his no confidence vote fails. If he doesn't shift then, Labour will start imploding. May might well feel that she's more likely to persuade Labour MPs, especially anti-Corbyn MPs, to back a deal, backstop or no backstop, than Tory MPs.

Having seen the scale of tonight's defeat Brussels could rightfully say May is a busted flush and refuse to give her any more leeway. In which case she's absolutely definitely finished. It then comes down to a game of bluff as to who first says we don't want 'No Deal'. House of commons would have taken control before it comes to that anyway I think. Extension of Article 50 almost a certainty now I'd say.

Wonder will Jeremy be giving a ring to the DUP during the night? Ian Jr. might find himself vacationing in the Seychelles again.

Heard from our lot that it's in Tuam.
Hope they're right and not just wishful thinking.

not sure why any one would want to go to Tuam. the stand side is a dup and should probably not ne open the roof is rusting away abd the seat seem to be made for national schools kids
other than that very enjoyable game with Michal daily looking like hes going to Fulfill his potential as he really turned he game in a very Short period.
From a mayo point of View Reape plunket and Mcdonagh look ready to take teir places whenever call on . I think Diskin could do with another year but has massive potential but need to build his strength on the ball .  howmany of the players yesterday will play come summer maybe 5 of the statters for mayo , so would not worry over result.
and I didn't hear any booing

Hey, come on, we don't practise sectarian segregation in Tuam. Against 'ethnic minorities' maybe......

Brexit is dead. May is expected to lose the vote by 200 and Parliament will not allow
No deal to happen. Neither will the EU. The Tories are fucked

So are Labour under Corbyn, who doesn't appear to stand for anything, unless DUP-like it's contrary to the Tories.

Don't ever, ever underestimate the electorate's ability to do something stupid. I've long argued for a meritocracy whereby only educated, literate, gainfully-employed, properly sentient beings are allowed to vote.  ;D ;D

Pogba didn't take long removing his post there . . . safe to say he's happy enough!

What did it say? Wasn't quick enough to see it.

She's botched everything she's touched during her whole tenure as PM. There was a poll of sorts last week where she came second only to Cameron as worst PM ever. I actually think she's worse; Cameron took a stupid gamble and lost but wasn't all bad. May is just thoroughly and utterly useless.

The EU council must despair of May at this stage. What part of 'No' does she not understand? Running about Europe, getting rebuffed repeatedly. It's humiliating for her and Britain in general.

Tories about to knife Tessie? 48 letters in apparently.

Err..when I said 'knife' I kinda meant using one of them plastic knives that they give you at a takeaway, the sort that shatter whenever you hit a tougher bit of chicken or cod. Looks as if the Tory 'hard right' are going to get a good routing in this. PPs has Tessie at 2/7 to survive.

Watched the game on RTE 2. The constant updates from the PSG v RSB were annoying to say the least. Nobody cared! It was always going to be a shoot out between Liverpool and Napoli! Ronnie Whelan jumped the gun more than a few times giving out about the Referee, when replays showed the Ref was spot on.

Anyway Roll on the weekend.

Ronnie made a tit of hisself a couple of times alright, while Ger C was just shocking on commentary.

Don't think golf is his first sport, or even fifth, from what I heard.
