Commons Speaker John Bercow has dramatically shot down Theresa May’s hopes of simply boring parliament into submission via ‘Meaningful Votes’ 3 and 4 on her abysmal Brexit deal.
Bercow has ruled that May cannot bring the motion back to Parliament – unless it changes ‘substantially’.
May’s desperate manoeuvres – said to include further ‘bungs’ to the DUP – may all prove for nothing, unless she can bring some significant change to the content of the deal and motion compared to the one that lost last week by 149 votes.
The chances of a new general election just went through the roof.
