Thank God for that.

That's too late sad, we need a vote before article 50, not in 2 years time

This means nothing.

All it means is with a gun to its head in a situation of 'either agree to this or have no deal'

Do not buy it. Its purely playing to the crowd rather than giving parliament any meaningful contribution to Brexit.

Yep, Red is right.

Parliament is not being told it can agree whatever deal May gets or cancel article 50/seek more time to negotiate a different deal. This is what it should insist on.

Parliament is instead being told it can take May's deal with whatever trade concessions she has managed to win, or risk full Hard Brexit under WTO rules with no trade deals even in the pipeline. This is no real choice.

Half baked and not good enough.

We need a vote in Parliament before article 50 is triggered, when we still have a chance to influence the negotiations, not once they are all over and our only choice is take whatever the deal is or leave with nothing.

....it would probably never be triggered

Greenish do you know something we don't? (Hopeful)

I've got money on it not being triggered well £20

My hope would be for article 50 not to be triggered, but is it a forlorn hope?

Hard brexit has been touted and is a worrying prospect.
