    Every government should have a Bercow running its proceedings.

    And with that parliament stands adjourned until Monday at 2:30.

    Good question which maybe should have been addressed earlier: How will MPs know that BoJo has complied with the Benn Act and sent the letter by 11:00pm tonight (midnight Sunday in Brussels)? I guess they'll have to keep an eye on Barnier and Juncker's twitter feed.

    Re: Brexit 2: Happy Halloween

    Out of curiosity, other than the problem of the Irish border, what would be the other hypothetical implications of Brussels telling them to go pound sand on another extension, resulting in the no-deal "hard" Brexit on 10/31?

    This seems to spell it out.

    Donald Tusk just tweeted that he is still waiting for the letter. It's 9:04 in Brussels...

    61 minutes to go. Have the police checked the ditches around London?

    The DUP now support a second referendum. A motion will be tabled this week. BoJo's Brexit vs Remain Speculation is this now has majority support and will pass.

    If true I hope the queen sends a couple of officers around to No 10 to escort BoJo to the Tower because he broke the law.

    However, I trust the EU leaders will know which letter to read and which to toss in the bin. Especially when a second referendum is in the offering and the UK will be revoking Article 50 soon.

    I noticed that. Raab is still saying BoJo's plan will pass parliament. You're not supposed to get high off your own supply.
