    And now three Tories (Heidi Allen, Sarah Wollaston and Anna Soubry) have quit the Conservative Party to sit with/alongside (still establishing which) the Independent Group as has another Labour MP.

    John Bercow has blown up May's plan to resubmit a previously defeated Brexit deal because it, um, doesn't follow the rules against resubmitting decided motions. The parliament could dissent from his ruling or sack him if it had the numbers to do so but presumably doesn't.

    What a mess.

    Even if May wins that vote, she still has to win the vote on her actual motion. So it appears that the Brexit 'endgame' will be an adjournment - possibly forever ...
