Let's hope Johnston has been on the phone tonight to inform the U.K ambassador to China to pop out and put the pre positioned letter in the 2nd class mail box to the EU before 11pm UK time thus complying with the Benn act.

or even the Falklands, that will need to wait for the weekly aircraft run.

"Must have got lost in the post Guv, honest!"

Perhaps the Ambassador to China could deliver it personally by slow boat of course.

?????The Act requires the PM him or herself to write the letter. Whoever this Johnston is,he/she is not eligible. It could, of course, be that you are not fully aware of the actual identity of your beloved Leader and you have been following a false trail! Wishimg to leave would make that quite possible. of course.

Is ‘Wishimg’ Johnson’s deputy? Can he or she write the letter?

what is the point of Boris Johnson

He is under investigation for sexual misconduct
He lied to the Queen
He tried to crush parliamentary democracy in our country
Every Brexit vote he has called he has lost
He is crude and disrespectful in Parliamentary debates
he is extremely fragile and unstable under pressure (Nuclear deterrent anyone-thank god the yanks can pul the plug on that when they want to)
Almost every word he says is a lie
He wasnt elected
He leads a party with no majority
He sabotaged a colleagues plans and drove her out of office
He then presents her deal as his even though it is somewhat worse for Britain and completely abcks down to the Eu on N Ireland

Does this really sound like a Prime Minister-

Hmmm I dunno... If only there was some mechanism by which we could ask the population if they WANTED him to be Prime Minister, especially after 3y of your “facts” above being screamed into everyone’s home in the land he’d be out on his ear. Slam dunk I’d have thought.

How are his approval ratings doing??

Are you indicating that it is democratically elected 27 EU heads of states fault that the UK repeatedly applies for an extension and that they comply with these requests ?

What happens if Boris Johnson sends the letter asking for an extension ... but does not sign it?

So two letters sent, one requesting an extension and unsigned and one saying no extension wanted and signed, good on him, a covering note too, the unsigned one was a fax copy and email?. I for one agree that you cannot ever legally make / force someone to sign a document, otherwise you could force people to sign confessions, wills etc.the Nazi's did that to steal people's property, he also stated in the letter from what I gather that the request in the first was filled out making the point it was from Parliament, that makes concern in the EU as the leaders work independent from their relevant parliaments.

and as for the demo outside, was there 17 plus million? Nope, so totally irrelevant.

Letters delivered to the EU.

At what point do we start searching the ditches for dead, pompous, idiotic, mendacious, oath breaking, ex prime ministers?

It is reported on our news the first was unsigned the second asking for no extension was signed.

The more they drag this on the more they alienate themselves from the people who put them there, Corbyn is only interested in power, he was denouncing it before he even knew what was in the agreement. As for the SNP, did you see the walkout.? Shades of what they did in 2018.

Thanks NutLoose for the factual update. Much appreciated.

So what happens now? Sunday off to go to Church or for a traditional Roast Dinner, or to take time off to watch the sport .... and then what? Surely this is unconstitutional behaviour? And what about the marchers (of all persuasions) in London today? Are they taking tomorrow off too?

Have XR gone home too?

People are confused why the government pulled the bill this afternoon, especially when it was pointed out that, because of previous rulings by the Speaker, it cannot now be presented in the same format in the same sitting.

Thus does, of course, give the government a valid, legal, excuse to prorogue parliament on Thursday for 5 days in order to start a new session next week and present MPs with the option of voting for it, or no deal, with just 24 hours until the deadline.

Just saying. No pressure on them on Monday or Tuesday.......

Because Johnson is working to bring about a departure in accordance with the wishes of the electorate, Corbyn isn't.

and that is what rankled on the Newsnight Special where that useless reporter would not allow the MP to respond to her question and in which she repeatedly blamed Johnston for the failure to have the vote today when the amendment prevented it, and she prevented him from explaining that.
