"My amendment doesn't block Brexit, it buys us more time", so says Yvette Cooper in her local rag.  Cooper is clearly concerned about how her actions are going to be perceived by her constituents, given that a whopping 70% of them voted to leave the EU.  Her lengthy article warns against 'no deal' and claims her attempt to extend Article 50 beyond March is merely aimed at thwarting no deal and not Brexit itself.

Pull the other one Yvette!

It's funny that all the MPs looking to support your amendment are Remainers.  We're not stupid.  We know full well you are looking for more time in order to thwart Brexit, not no deal.  The longer you and your colleagues eke this thing out the more time you'll have to espouse the supposed merits of a so-called 'People's Vote', and we know that 'Remain' must be included in that!

Cooper begins one of her paragraphs "To be honest".  Sorry, but we remember your expenses claims from your time in government.  There is nothing noble or honest about you.
