I think regardless of which side of the Brexit fence you guys sit on, due your constitution being unwritten and therefore relying on precedent, there’s been some very dangerous precedents set in the last 12 months or so. The speaker has expanded the powers of the position massively by allowing and disallowing May’s deal in the ways he did amongst other actions. In future this could really hurt your country on other issues depending on any future speaker’s intentions or their influence by the government.

If Bojo the clown doesn’t ask for an extension and gets away with it, this basically voids any future parliamentary vote against any future PM
