Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

MPs just voted against a No Deal Brexit.  

After the vote:

Mrs May said "the options before us are the same as they always have been".

"The legal default in EU and UK law is that the UK will leave without a deal unless something else is agreed. The onus is now on every one of us in this House to find out what that is."

But we know what that is.  As she herself said, "Brexit means Brexit."

Tomorrow the House of Commons is scheduled to vote to set the speed of light to 300,000,000 meters per second and pi to 3 because 299,792,458 and 3.14159 are messy.

Pi=3 must be a gesture to the DUP. 1 Kings 7:23:
And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.

Hey, you're talking about a perfect, divine document.  You keep it up with such blasphemy, and some Trump fans will show up at YOUR church.

The UK will be going back to Imperial measurements anyway, so it is the EU Metre which will have to change it's measure to fit in. As for Pi, the UK has voted to keep a bigger slice for itself, so it doesn't matter if the overall size of the Pi shrinks...

I hope you realize that the word "inch" comes from an EU language, Latin. England will actually switch to measuring distances in barleycorns. If you prefer poppyseeds, you'll have to decide if they are ​1⁄4 or ​1⁄5 of a barleycorn.

I hadn't realized that Latin was an official EU language, or that the Roman Empire was just the EU by another name. However that does explain why the DUP think the EU is all a Papist conspiracy...

And then the EU became Germany's Third Reich by another name, or maybe the Soviet Union by another name: we, Continentals, have a really hard time following the Westminster Fantasy Universe.
