Brexit: MPs back Boris Johnson's bill

Source: BBC News

MPs have backed Prime Minister Boris Johnson's plan for the UK to leave the EU on 31 January.

They voted 358 to 234 in favour of the EU (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill, which now goes on to further scrutiny in the House of Commons and House of Lords.

The bill would also ban an extension of the transition period - during which the UK is out of the EU but follows many of its rules - past 2020.

drumpf is doing it so PUtin put him, then keeps him in power to grift, steal and hurt whoever he wants as long as he helps Russia and does everything PUtin tells him. Is Boris involved with the same #1 oligarch in the world and does he serve the same purpose? It seems like a big yes to me, but not really 100% sure about him and Brexit, other than Russia approves.

... to see which can be a failed state first.

Turning silk purses back into sows' ears... utter madness.
