There Must Not Be A General Election - so the MPs will vote for stuff they've spent months telling us that they don't believe in.

It looks like in the choice between the government collapsing (because they can't get the deal through the Commons) and signing up for something that people don't believe in, many of both the Leave and the Remain MPs from all parties are going to back the deal. In other words, all the MPs' brave words of 'principle' that we've spend months and months listening to (from both sides) are going to be dumped for one reason: prevent a General Election happening because there is the possibility that Labour might win.

Maybe I've misread the runes on this, but that's what it looks like at the moment. And these great people of principle will dress it all up as another great principle that they are 'flexible' and able to compromise 'for the sake of the British people'. 

Pass me the sick bowl.
