As it stands this surge would buy me five more beers per month in the Algarve on my converted £ pension.

Yes. An election could do that too if called in April which I think is in May's power under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act.

May’s Plan B seems to be “one more heave”. Stick to the deal. Stick to the red lines. Treat last night’s vote as a protest vote. Try to persuade MPs who’ve been ignored for two years to sign up to the deal

This crushing defeat shows that Theresa May is out of options. It’s time to give the people the final say, whether through a general election or popular vote.

Off to London to meet with and MPs ahead of no confidence vote in Commons later. We want UK to stay in EU which is why we back a . But it is becoming increasingly clear that Scotland’s wider interests will only be protected with independence.

A reminder to all that a Customs Union is not sufficient to allow frictionless trade (see Turkey). Neither is Single Market Membership (see Norway). Only Single Market Membership and a Customs Union can do that.

PM back in full Maybot mode insisting she will stick to her Brexit plan. Genuinely disturbing

It's certainly a Portuguese telecoms company. They sponsor sport getting their name on microphones.

Ken Clarke suggests rule out No Deal, extend Article 50 timetable and propose a permanent customs union and regulatory alignment. Theresa May quite dismissive - if this is reaching out to her own side reaching out to others is going to be interesting

It is not up to me, as a humble Belgian, to lecture Brits on what to do, but I think it’s time the national interest overtakes narrow party politics & cross party politics redefines the red lines imposed by hardliners in the Conservative party. We are ready for this.

In central lobby, reflecting on tonight’s momentous events after a hectic interview round. May will go down in history as the PM who lost her majority in a snap election & the went on to suffer biggest government defeat since the 19th century. And still she goes on. Incredible

They didn't vote for anything, just against EU membership. Norway covers that.

I looked Theresa May in the eyes today across the chamber and I was stunned. She was emotionless. Her government has been found in contempt of parliament and now she has lost a vote by the largest margin by any government in history. Why didn't she resign?

Just noticed Theresa May accused Corbyn of being willing to ‘abandon our allies’. What the hell does she think Brexit is?

Indeed. I cannot conceive of a previous period when this would not have led to the immediate resignation of the Prime Minister. Chamberlain actually won by 80 in the “Who lost Norway” debate 1940 but it was so below his nominal majority he resigned.
