For whatever reason my app (Podcast Addict) doesn't bring this up on a search. Is it only on certain platforms.

Back on subject.
Farage has been scooting round Europe and has managed to get his right wing friends to agree to block any request for an extension to article 50.
If true this means revoking it and staying in or crashing out on the 29th are the only alternatives to the witches brew that the witch has agreed to.

Meanwhile May is going to try for a third time to get her deal through?

If that's the best plan she has, then wow.

I use Acast which seems to be the defacto podcast app theses days.

I also listen to Cakewatch (@guitarmoog and @ottocrat) they know their stuff but a bit rambly and occasionally The New European podcast but Remainiacs is the big boi (and probably the most entertaining).

Pretty unbelievable isn't it? Andy Wigmore visiting far right in Italy trying to do the same thing.

Actually, EU may not even grant a short extension if it doesn't include a serious resolution anyway. They want shot of us now. Long extension or revoke A50 may be all they accept.

Still threatening the right-wingers with "my deal" or no brexit. If you don't get the result you want, keep going until you do. Where have I heard that before?

When the vote to reject no deal brexit passed many ERGers said it didn't matter because IT'S ONLY ADVISORY *punches hole through brick wall*

Cool, let's cancel brexit completely because the referendum was also only advisory.

Had it not been there were sufficient breaches of electoral law to have it declared invalid.

What is it that David Allen Green says

"Any referendum can be either democratic or irreversible, but not both."

Not really, I'd stop listening to Carole Cadwallr as her work has had to have far too many retractions made on it.  Guido has a reasonable explanation on why he was in Italy, I don't care if it's true or not as I'm quite relaxed seeing as every man and his dog was able to speak to the EU negotiating team to try and stop Brexit.

Especially when the EU have said they won't accept any A50 extension unless there's a General Election or a second referendum - neither of which is likely.  Even though there is an amendment on the both, Labour have already said they won't whip on the second referendum and even the People's Vote group aren't putting their weight behind it today (similar to last time, their excuse is this isn't the right time).

To be fair, they just using exactly the same terminology that's been thrown at them for two years so you can't expect an advisory referendum that the government of the day said would definitely be implemented regardless of the decision to be overturned and then expect an explicitly advisory motion to be accepted by those same people.

I'm pretty sure Priti Patel, amongst others, provided evidence of breaches by the various co-ordinate Remain group to the Electoral Commission to be investigated but they refused to even consider it.

So no...

So yes

Guardian article

The fact the second ref vote didn't go through is because even the bulk of those wanting it didn't vote for it.
Parliamentary tactics. Which I don't think even a lot of them understand.

You may well be right.  I know those outside Parliament won't forget they didn't vote for something they've been pushing but on the other hand they all voted to invoke Article 50 and have been fighting against it ever since...
