A parliamentary point of order No2:

Corbyn speaking to the CBI this afternoon assured the audience that no deal will never be approved by Parliament.

If the PM's deal is voted down and no other deal on offer, how can be be so confident that no deal cannot be adopted by default? What can Parliament do to stop this happening that I'm not aware of?

Nothing (another selection of words here) to do with Parliament. Whatever they vote for, or don't.

By putting Article 50 to the EU, we leave on the 29th. If no agreement is reached, then we have no agreement.

That's what I thought, but it's not just Labour saying that.

So this morning The Guardian covering the Spanish threat to throw a spanner in the works over Gibraltar. Writing...

"However, the issue could end up torpedoing the entire withdrawal agreement. If this happens then MPs will be faced with two choices – no deal or a People’s Vote. There is no majority in the House of Commons for no deal. If the whole Brexit project crashes because of a piece of land that the UK took control of hundreds of years ago it would be the ultimate irony."

Yet again a reference to the simple "By putting Article 50 to the EU, we leave on the 29th. If no agreement is reached, then we have no agreement." to the question.

Corbyn has mentioned this, as have the LibDems and May. This doesn't sound as simple as claimed to me. Anyone know of any deeper hidden procedure that supports these claims?

This morning on the radio Amber Rudd gave reference to this, the PM also again in PMQ, but then in answer to the direct question said we would leave on that date.

I think that we must prepare to do an Airlift to Gibraltar, much in the same way as we helped Berlin

They have a sea port.

Meanwhile they're still talking about the ambiguity of the meaning of 'no Brexit at all' on all the news channels.

If it was a blag statement it would have been exposed by now, it's almost as if there is a taboo on discussing it beyond a veiled threat...

QB, to paraphrase Mrs May 'no Brexit at all' isn't 'no Brexit at all'.
