COM­MUTERS GET DOWN TO BA­SICS

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

voted to leave the EU.

Mrs May said the vote in the House of Com­mons was the “big­gest and most im­por­tant de­ci­sion that any MP of our gen­er­a­tion will be asked to make”.

The Prime Min­is­ter said fail­ing to de­liver on the ref­er­en­dum would be “a cat­a­strophic and un­for­giv­able breach of trust in our democ­racy’’.

MPs on all sides of the de­bate were fu­ri­ously ne­go­ti­at­ing for sup­port for their pre­ferred out­come.

Brex­i­teers con­tin­ued to push for a “no-deal’’ de­par­ture — which would see Bri­tain crash out of the EU at mid­night on March 29 with no agree­ments with Brus­sels. HUN­DREDS of peo­ple have stripped off their trousers to take a half-naked trip on the Lon­don Un­der­ground.

Crowds met out­side the Na­tional Gallery in the city’s Trafal­gar Square for the 10th an­nual No Trousers Tube Ride be­fore head­ing un­der­ground where they boarded trains on dif­fer­ent Tube lines across the cap­i­tal.

More than 100 peo­ple piled on to the Pic­cadilly Line, where they strug­gled to re­move their trousers due to the large crowds.

Reg­u­lar Sun­day pas­sen­gers were left be­wil­dered as men and women sat in their brightly-coloured un­der­wear talk­ing or read­ing, or tak­ing pic­tures of each other.

After chang­ing to the Jubi- lee Line at Green Park, the group got off at Ca­nary Wharf to do some aer­o­bics on the plat­form be­fore jump­ing on an­other train.

The event is part of the world­wide No Pants Sub­way Ride, which be­gan in New York in 2002 and has since spread to over 60 cities around the globe in­clud­ing Tokyo, Jerusalem and Moscow.
