    Parliament have a full week of debates & votes.

    Thus far they have voted against May's deal, against a no deal and the government are firmly against a second referendum.

    All roads lead to... nowhere. Honestly couldn't make this up.

    Meanwhile we (socialists) all wait with baited breath to see if there's a cock up large enough to trigger a long anticipated general election. Labour are leading the (non corrupted) polls - and our Dear Jeremy Corbyn would become Prime Minister of the UK

    Meanwhile the neo-liberal establishment have been really upping their efforts to destroy the Corbyn cabinet. Following a brash and abrasive onslaught of anti-antisemitism propaganda and the formation of a break away "party", certain "centrist" labour members have now formed a group within Labour, Future Britain, to help destabilise the Labour party from within.

    Insidious mechanisms and motivations at work, no doubt about it.

    They will do anything to keep Corbyn out of power.

    Secret Freemasons groups for politicians and journalists have been operating in Westminster, it has been reported.


    According to The Guardian, the secret society has two arms established for people working on the parliamentary estate.

    The newspaper revealed that the New Welcome Lodge is for MPs, peers and parliamentary staff, while Gallery Lodge is for political journalists with access to parliament, known as the lobby.

    MPs vote to move out of crumbling Parliament for years to allow multi-billion restoration
    Freemasonry records show that both are still active.

    It is understood that the New Welcome Lodge has 30 to 40 members, around four of which are MPs, while Gallery Lodge has 45 members.

    David Staples, the chief executive of the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE), the governing body for Freemasons in England and Wales, defended the secret society.

    He said: “Contrary to populist perception, being a Freemason helps those members in roles serving society in the broader sense, including journalists, politicians, policemen and lawyers, to be better in those jobs by encouraging them to act as better people themselves.

    "Their membership is a positive for both them as individuals, and for society at large."

    A spokesman for the UGLE added: "None of the members who have joined either of these two lodges since 2000 have their occupation recorded as journalist or anything obviously linked to the newspaper industry."

    Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard.

    A very British coup against the PM


    The most important amendment going on the order paper today is the one in the names of Hilary Benn, Sir Oliver Letwin and Yvette Cooper - because it is the one that would wrest control of shaping Brexit from the prime minister and deliver this control to MPs.

    This is a coup against the PM, against the executive, so Theresa May is honour bound to oppose it, to instruct Tory MPs via a three-line whip to vote it down.

    But it was clear from what the business secretary, Greg Clark, said on my show last night, and what the Chancellor said in his Spring Statement yesterday, that important members of the Cabinet - them, plus Rudd and Gauke, for instance - support this revolt of the backbenches.

    So, the first question is whether Clark, Rudd and Gauke - plus other ministers desperate to avoid a no-deal Brexit - will have to rebel against the PM again by either abstaining on the Benn/Letwin amendment or backing it.

    Probably not, I am reliably told. Since the movers of the motion are convinced they will win, even without ministerial support, and would rather keep their supporters inside the PM's tent.

    "They are more useful to us in the government rather than out," one of the leaders of the coup told me - in language that will further enrage Brexiter Tories, who fear they are being comprehensively outmanoeuvred by unreconstructed Remainers seeking to capture the Brexit citadel and deliver what they see as Brexit in Name Only.

    There is of course deep pain for the prime minister in the confidence of Benn/Letwin/Cooper that they will triumph even without ministerial resignations, which is that she has lost control of her backbenches - and that significant numbers of Tories outside the payroll will disobey her.

    Was listening to two Poms at work yesterday who were extremely happy about Brexit as eastern European migrants wouldn't be able to move to the UK to go on the dole get more money than they get at home for doing nothing and get free health care and free dental.

    I had to leave the room before I told a manager that he didn't understand the laws of his own country.

    Freemasons? Nah, this looks like an Illuminatti or a Bilderburg plot to me :-D Most likely meeting in Area 51 where the moon landings were faked and the plot to assassinate Kennedy was planned. I just wonder if the space aliens located there are actually directing all of this?

    When the Internet first became popular (yes there were times before an Internet), I actually thought people would become better informed and use it to seek real truth. 1/2 hour on facebook dispels that idealism. What troubles me nowadays is not knowing if someone is joking or they really believe all the conspiracy theories floating around. Hell, who needs unprovable conspiracies when the obvious is bad enough?!

    Brexit will just be another historically inconsequential incidence in a succession of historically largely inconsequential incidences. Much ado about nothing.

    Which "incidence" will that be? The re-establishment of the IRA? or the UK breaking up? or the 10% drop in the economy?
