No 10 accuses Labour of putting party interests ahead of national interest

Downing Street has released this statement about the result. A spokesman said:

Jeremy Corbyn yet again put partisan considerations ahead of the national interest – and yet again, by voting against the government’s motion, he is in effect voting to make no deal more likely.

While we didn’t secure the support of the Commons this evening, the prime minister continues to believe, and the debate itself indicated, that far from objecting to securing changes to the backstop that will allow us to leave with a deal, there was a concern from some Conservative colleagues about taking no deal off the table at this stage.

The motion on 29 January remains the only one the House of Commons has passed expressing what it does want – and that is legally binding changes to address concerns about the backstop. The government will continue to pursue this with the EU to ensure we leave on time on 29 March.

Getting an indicated 48.5 to 50 mpg on rural hilly roads on a 20 mile each way regular commute .... with a bit of careful driving & reaching flatter roads I'm sure 55 should be within easy reach  8)

I watched an interview with Liam Fox who said that most of the trade deals were ready to be signed but could not be signed until we left the EU. May just be BS, but it does make sense and it would be very awkward, not to say damaging, to his reputation and future career if it was BS.
It's Liam Fox so it's guaranteed BS, they won't be ready to sign - just ready to start negotiations lasting x number of years with clauses that won't be liked by UK & anything with China has just his a big set back thanks to unfortunate threatening words of Gavin Williamson MP towards China

Reports coming out today that Theresa May is going to prevent no deal happening whatever happens so the already dead prospect of WTO could well just have been a empty threat on UK by UK after all?

WTO option as hoped for by Tories has as most will know already been blocked by WTO members

Guy. Thanks for your input. The only engine size offered for the 2016 model is the 1.5. I thought that was only available in the UK from 2018.
The 2010 models show 1339 cc engines with both 100 and 101 hp and recommend different oils. According to Autocar all the 1339 cc engines were 100 bhp.
Looking for my particular model it seems to show every engine made (including a 1600 cc that I have never come across before) throughout the world.
Your vehicle finder may be fine if the viewer knows exactly what they are looking for. If not they could end up being confused and ordering the wrong items.

There will not be any large scale movement of business to EU because it has its own massive problems that dwarf Brexit.  It is a hostile place to do financial business and its regulations have affected the operations of London based financial institutions.

The Euro is on life support and although it suits German export businesses because it is valued lower than a currency specific to Germany would be, its value is kept artificially low by southern European economies, but the currency is still too highly valued for their economies.  It is these massive imbalances that will finally finish off the Euro, and it makes Eurozone a risky place for investors.

More than likely

Damage what reputation? Fox isn't fit to hold a ministerial role.
