    The date 29 March 2019 at 11pm, Brexit Day, has now been locked down in law.

    More importantly, MPs rejected the so-called “meaningful vote” Lords Amendment that would stop Britain leaving the EU without a deal and would have allowed Parliament to force the government’s negotiating hand.

    Britain’s Brexit minister David Davis said on Tuesday there would be no reversal of the decision to leave the European Union whatever the outcome of divorce talks, Reuters reported.

    “Whatever we do, we’re not going to reverse that [decision to leave the EU],” David told BBC radio. “A meaningful vote is not the ability to reverse the decision of the referendum.”

    The actual vote on Amendment 110 means the so-called Sifting Committee will not be able to scrutinise the Cabinet’s Brexit directives.

    Steven Woolfe MEP, said there was a class war going on in the UK and across Europe. “A class war is being waged across the UK and Europe. A class war that pitched the snobby sect of the upper classes against the working and unemployed masses. A snobby sect that thinks the lower classes are too thick, too dumb, too stupid for voting for populists and Brexit.

    “A snobbish sect that pitched the rich against the poor, the university educated against those that didn’t go to university. A snobbish sector that bribed and cajoled academics to support the EU, that bribed lobbyist think tanks and corporations with EU funding and subsidies.

    “A snobbish sect that today will unleash their cronies cohorts of politicians in the UK parliament to overthrow the Brexit bill.

    “Well I hope those cronies MPs and MEPs enjoy their 50 pieces of Euro silver as they dump on the face of democracy and seek to deny Brexit.”
