COUNTDOWN TO COUP IN COMMONS
1 TABLES MOTION
On Tuesday, Dominic Grieve tables his amendment which would force the PM to set out within three sitting days what she will do next if the meaningful vote doesn’t pass this week. His aim is to empower MPs to tell the Government what they want to happen over Brexit.
2 MEETS SPEAKER
Later that day, Mr Grieve visits Speaker John Bercow in his grace-and-favour Commons apartment.
3 VOTE CALLED
On Wednesday, Mr Bercow causes uproar by calling the amendment, despite aides telling him it goes against constitutional precedent.
