What happens today: Two major votes
# Vote 1 – The WAB – Government expected to win…
# Vote 2 – ‘The Program Motion, PM” – here it is 50/50 if government will get support.
If #1+#2 pass the Commons moves to a 3rd reading where MP’s gets to attach amendments: Two such are expected: A Custom Union and 'Final Say' vote from Labour.
Saxo Bank view:
We stick by 50% chance of pass by October 31st, but there is now two other scenario’s likely: A General Election and further extension, plus of course a small but still realistic chance of hard Brexit if Downing Street insist on disrespecting Parliament.
