        • The UK has long prided itself on its unwritten constitution - and it's finding out the hard way one of the disadvantages of an unwritten constitution.

          I like the part where parliament is claiming to be preserving democracy after three years of not doing what the people told them to!

            The EU referendum of 2016 was not legally binding but the government of the day promised to implement the result. The referendum was a bad idea at the start because the people were already represented by their Members of Parliament. The Cons did it to pacify their evil back benchers. The government failed to deliver Brexit and are now hanging by a thread. A new government might be elected on the promise that Article 50 is revoked, and we stay in the EU!

              All you need to know is that Parliament is giving the British ‘Trump’ a good kicking.

              Meanwhile, realTrump is targeting sick and dying children for deportation. GOP are quite relaxed about all that fascist manoeuvring.

                  Again, because they don't care about what the people voted on. Brexit won. They need to deal with it and represent their constituents.

                        I probably haven't heard the incredibly perverted version you've heard, no.

                          That sounds like a system ripe for abuse.

                            I quite agree the referendum was a bad plan (never ask questions if you can't deal with the answer) but politically, they are stuck with it.

                            I doubt the new government will be remainer - at least one commenter (seems to be remainer) thinks Johnson is actually maneuvering for an election. Risky, but it makes sense.

                            Dunno, I'm just here for the popcorn.

                              Buried in the Time article:

                              Source: Time

                              The agency estimates it receives about 1,000 deferred action requests per year that are related neither to the military nor to DACA. Most of them cite medical or financial hardships, the agency said.

                              Going forward, applicants will be able to seek deportation deferrals from a different agency, Immigration Customs and Enforcement, according to the spokeswoman.

                                Well, at least it’s a “version”. Better than the mushroom treatment you get. There’s a lot going on and I can’t be telling you everything. Whatever it is you listen to, I think you need to give it up.
