    You appear to be assuming a certain level of competence in estate agents ;)

    Yeah. This concerned me too. Especially as 'damp specialists' tend to constantly misdiagnose damp as rising when it isn't because rising is more profitable.

    Are you sure this isn't adding disproportionately to the bill?

    stockpiles tinfoil

    Bacofoil was bought by a German firm in 2015 but it's still made in the UK according to their website so I don't think this is necessary.

    It's not meant to! @Howard asked me what would be a sensible way forward.

    If there are other potential options they could be added to the ballot, but there aren't, are there?

    If they can't come up with a decent solution they should take it back to the people. Choice of hard brexit, May's deal or cancel the whole thing. The politicians have made it very clear they think May's deal is crap and a hard brexit is terrible.

    Personally if that happened and hard brexit or May's deal won it wouldn't be my choice and I'd be unhappy with the result, but at least there would be clarity around what 'the will of the people' is so I'd have to accept it.

    Yes exactly. But I think quite a lot of Tories would vote no confidence in TM at the moment. At least enough.

    How do MPs force the long extension if the government doesn't want to entertain the idea?

    They can't - May has secured a shorter extension from the EU than she wanted. She wanted June, they gave her May. We can't force the EU to give us longer, but naturally if there was a vote to remain they'd accept that straight away.

    I agree with Andy's analysis, May's even lost her chief whip's confidence and he's being openly critical. That's about as bad as it gets for any PM (or should be).

    I think the MV3 will have to happen first, but a no confidence vote next week is a real possibility. May got 63% on December 12th - a lot has changed since then and it's hard to see how she could survive one. Then the Commons could take control and come up with something sensible by April 12th.

    The extensions have been added.

    Bercow may still decide that’s not enough change but he’s had his moment

    I'm pretty sure the extensions will be enough. He said something along the lines of if you bring it back with an actual change I'll let it pass but not if it's exactly the same.

    But the numbers still don't add up unless MPs lose their nerve.

    Marine blue/limestone (i.e. blue/white) is my favourite colour of Land Rover.

    I'd like a series III please.
