Parliament cries tears of a nation as 'flextension' enters the Brexit lexicon

For the first time in a long time, parliament this week began to reflect the mood of the country as the House of Commons started to cry.

Rain leaking in through a hole in the roof of the House of Commons forced MPs to call off a debate because the sound of water was pouring into the press gallery, which – as symbolism goes – is hard to beat in the current stalemate around Brexit.

When inanimate objects start to reflect real emotions it's called 'pathetic fallacy,' but MPs should be more worried about their pathetic legacies if they don't come up with a way forward.
