The House of Lords has passed the Brexit bill, paving the way for the government to trigger Article 50 so the UK can leave the EU

Peers backed down over the issues of EU residency rights and a meaningful vote on the final Brexit deal after their objections were overturned by MPs.

The bill is expected to receive Royal Assent and become law on Tuesday.

The BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg said this would leave Theresa May free to push the button on withdrawal talks.

The prime minister could theoretically invoke Article 50, which formally starts the Brexit process, as early as Tuesday.

    Cool. This week could be an anti-globalist two-fer if Geert wins.

    • That would be nice

    • I so wish Geert wins. Great guy, ready to ban Islam and reverse Muslim immigration and get out of the nasty EU, and willing to say so. Of course, even if he comes out first, he would still need alliance with other parties to actually wield power, because Dutch politics has so many parties running.
      A Geert win would also improve Le Pen’s chances. If Le Pen also won, it would spell the death of the EU.

    Off topic, but the same John Tory that supports the jew-hating Imam and mosque in Toronto had the nerve to support the islamophobia M-103 because of rampant racism towards muslims but now showed up at the rally to denounce that Bomb Threats to jewish schools and the over anti-semitism.

    ** Jews are eight times more likely to be the victims of hate crimes than those in other groups, according to Statistic Canada.
    “We have to inspire our young people to stand up and take responsibility,” Wolnerman said.

    Mayor John Tory said while there are only a small number of people spreading hate, the rally represented hope.
    “The most important thing for us is to stand up and say ‘No.’ Stand in solidarity against Anti-Semitism,” Tory said. *******

    So the jews have the most attacks on them and mainly by Muslims, yet John Tory trivializes it as ” a few ” haters but islamophobia and nation wide .
    Did this dolt not watch the Mosque video where the Imam call for slaughter the jews as the Muslims that grunted to agree?????
    He knows how the followers of islam are predisposed to terrorism and it’s safer to insult Jews than to tell the truth about the 10th century knuckle dragging Imams and their flocks that call for the take over of canada for the Caliphate .

    Stop the immigration from islamic hell holes and send Trudeau’s pakistani MP and her M-103 back to the hell-hole swamp she crawled out of to come here and try to bring Sharia here .
    She walks erect and has a vertical forehead which has fooled people.

      John Tory is nothing if not the epitome of political correctness.

    Once the Netherlands and France also exit, UK can form a new Free Trade bloc with them, without the mass immigration sidebar. Then the more benighted EU members will be falling all over themselves for a true free trade agreement with the three outsiders.

      A new Free Trade bloc? Out of the frying pan and into the fire – Why? Bi-lateral agreements please. Multi-lateral agreements are like multi-culturalism, they don’t work because they dilute the sovereignty of the nation state.

        Yep.
        The more people at the table, the less likely that the needs of a given person at the table is to be addressed.
        Math is hard.

  • Good on you, UK. May the EU disappear. It has brought nothing but woes, being the vehicle of leftist domination and Islamic infiltration.

    As a matter of interest, is your image with the Union Flag/Jack flying upside down deliberate?

    The correct way is to have the broad diagonal stripe in the top LH quarter, not the thin stripe (we also have a Flag Code). Flying the flag upside down has for a long time been a signal of distress. The Union Flag is all set to reclaim its own place outside the United States of Europe.

    There will be no Brexit.
    Something will interfere, like a war in the Baltic states, and the “Now is not the time for division” rhetoric will begin.
