Theresa May facing crunch vote on her Brexit deal

MPs are preparing to vote on whether to back Theresa May’s deal for leaving the European Union.

The so-called “meaningful vote” will take place later as five days of debate on Brexit come to an end.

Mrs May has called for politicians to back her deal or risk “letting the British people down”.

But with many of her own MPs expected to join opposition parties to vote against the deal, it is widely expected to be defeated.

I have lost the plot here. Apparently it will be awful for May to lose this vote but then they’ll have another vote or maybe not and this shambling circus will continue to bore us to death to eternity. It all seems a charade designed to make those who voted for Brexit give up in disgust or die off whatever comes first.
