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

The BBC is reporting ...

A series of Brexit votes have taken place in the Commons:

    On Tuesday, MPs rejected Mrs May's withdrawal agreement for a second time by 149 votes

    On Wednesday, MPs voted to reject the idea of the UK leaving the EU without a deal under any circumstances

    Then, on Thursday, the Commons voted by 413 to 202 to seek an extension to Article 50 - the legal mechanism by which the UK is due to leave the EU

However, as things stand, the law has not been changed, as Wednesday and Thursday's votes were not legally binding.

That means the UK is still set to leave on 29 March - with or without a deal.
