I stayed up til after 1am last night listening to the House of Lords debate the No-to-No-Deal-Brexit bill.
(The last time I did this it was when the Lords were debating equal marriage.)
There was a group of less than a hundred peers who were trying to prevent the bill passing – effectively, a filibuster. Endless references to “Lord True’s manuscript amendment G-9-c-x-zzzzz.”
Something over two hundred peers stayed from 3pm til after 1am consistently voting down the amendments proposed by the Brexiter peers. I was impressed by their tenacity and endurance.
