The Deal is defeated
I'm off to see the houses of Parliment on the 21st. Our (Conservative) MP Eddie Hughes who I have had some correspondence with, sent out a questionnaire with a final question asking if we would be interested in visiting The Commons. Apparently, he voted Against The Deal specifically on the Irish "Backstop".

The Withdrawal Agreement fails on returning control of laws. An Irish backstop we can't unilateral

I'm that depressed at the prospect of a Labour government I've just eaten four chocolate digestives. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Good god. All the opposition wants to do is keep going over and over again what a huge defeat it is for the government. I don't see any of them offering to work with the government now that Theresa May has finally reached out to Parliament.

And the voting begins! Watching it live from Parliment.

So these are the Amendments to be voted on before the big vote tonight.

A: Typical @UKLabour blocking the deal but having no actual plan other than more talking and faffing about.
K: Someone remind the SNP this is Britain, not just Scotland.
B. I think that's fair tbh, at least it is in the spirit of "Taking back control."
F. Pretty much the same as B imo

I'm eating carrot sticks and the senior Engineer is shoving a Big Mac in his face! There's just no justice in the UK these days. ๐Ÿ˜ข

After today, if anyone says to me "Na, I don't vote because my vote doesn't count." I shall change my opinion and agree with them because if has proved anything it's that voting in the UK is pointless.

PHPlist is back up and running. Upgraded to version 3.3.8 and now:

Ooh! Those naughty people in the Netherlands trying to get into works website. Tut, tut, tut.

Good god. People on Facebook are actually stockpiling food! Seriously? I mean seriously? I'm just speechless that people honestly think its necessary.

Hands up all those who remember the Y2K cobblers? Remember how the media spread gloom and doom? How people would die on operating tables. How cars would be crashing all over the world as traffic lights stopped working and planes would fall out of the sky! Welcome to FUD.

And I've just broke our phplist.

That'll teach me for trying the Beta updater.

I don't think I'll go on the guided tour "They took away and turned off the dosimeters...." ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ๐Ÿคฎ

Surely there's a direct bus, tram or train from Brussels airport to effectively the centre of Brussels? What's this "Walk for four minutes to Brussels Airport - Zaventem, catch the Intercity 9228 Brussel-Zuid/Midi then walk another 10 minutes to Bedford Hotel & Congress Centre"!

I wonder how much a taxi would be?

Dear LinkedIN

Why the hell would I congratulate someone for being X numbers of years at their own business?

My greatest achievement this weekend was tightening a couple of screws on the oven door that wasn't closing properly and replacing a light bulb of which I have a varied collection in the cupboard under the sink.
