But not SCOTUS proof. Arguably, in the US SCOTUS is "sovereign" ... which corresponds more directly to parely mint in the UK. In the UK the courts cannot overturn parley mints laws ... parley mint can change its mind ... and SCOTUS can change its mind. In the US, Congress can "over turn" a SCOTUS ruling by passing a new law ... but SCOTUS can over turn the new law ... given an appropriate case upon which to rule. So perhaps SCOTUS and Congress are both "almost but not quite sovereign" from a de-jure perspective ... on the other hand ... the executive branch ... is almost but not quite sovereign from a defacto perspective, since Congress has delegated so much "rule making" (a.k.a. law making) power to the agencies ... and practically speaking, cannot take it back.

Well, well.

I doubt that if McConnell would have out a vote to end the shutdown, and the result would have been most likely a veto-proof majority, that the SCotUS would have done anything. ;)

How about you, what do you think?

There are just three possibilities.

Some preparations indeed. :roll:

But no worries, everything is just right.

Yo educate the Brits, and others. ;)



Still confused. I am. :roll:

Freedom of movement == access to the single market.

I am for freedom. :mrgreen:

I have never needed a passport to travel or live and work in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland (and Faroe Islands).

I kind of like the idea. ;)

... Brexit should be delayed if Parliament does not approve a deal in the coming days, three cabinet ministers have warned publicly for the first time.

Ahead of crucial votes in the Commons, Greg Clark, Amber Rudd and David Gauke told the Daily Mail they would be prepared to defy Theresa May and vote for a delay.

Downing Street said the trio's views on no deal were "scarcely a secret".

Conservative Brexiteer Andrew Bridgen called on them to resign.

"They are rejecting government policy and they are threatening to vote against government policy next week," the MP told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

"In that case, they should do the honourable thing and resign from the government immediately."

Number 10 said in a statement: "The PM is working hard to ensure we get a deal with the EU that allows us to deliver on the result of the referendum.

"That is where the cabinet's energy should be focused." ...


Oh boy ... maybe no body told the MPs .. but BE has already been delayed THREE YEARS ...

Anyone who knows anything about negotiating knows you cannot negotiate if you cannot walk away. And by this point, there is only one option ... walk first ... talk later ...

Can May dump the cabinet and get a new one ??

Talk about hypocrisy: Andrew Bridgen voted against May's deal. Perhaps he and his ilk should leave the Tories. Seems that the May and the Parliament are hostages of the ERG. And Corbyn's antics does not help at all.

I predict more desertion from the Tories and Labour. :roll:

Sounds like Cor-butt is coming out as a remainer ... he says its time for another vote to see if the people can get it right this time :D

==

Poor brits ... I guess we are better off having split away after all ... even when they VOTE ... the dukes and such ignore them ... I guess the surprise is that we are surprised ...
