    She finds it embarrassing so she is trying to hide it. She will probably be found in contempt of Parliament but I don't know if that really means anything.

    I understand the immediate consequences are political costs -- Mays gov is already in a bad position, and this comes in right before an important decision/debate on Brexit, where she'd need all the support she can get, so this does rather undermine her further (below it's said to be more a distraction, not a disaster, tho).

    Beyond that I found this:

    Commons Speaker John Bercow said late on Monday there was an "arguable case" that a contempt of Parliament had been committed.

    However, the government then tabled an amendment to have the issue referred to MPs on the Privileges Committee to investigate whether its response fulfils all its obligations, taking into account any relevant past cases.

    BBC political correspondent Iain Watson said any defeat over the legal advice would be likely to come as "an unwelcome distraction rather than a disaster" for the prime minister.

    "While ultimately a parliamentary committee could decide to reprimand or suspend ministers, it's highly likely no sanction would be applied before next week's crucial vote on the Brexit deal," he said.

    How does May justify not revealing the full legal analysis of the Brexit deal to Parliament? Now that the Speaker says the government probably broke the law by not revealing the full analysis, are there any consequences?

    It actually was true prior to the reforms in 2008, fool.

    There's even a Euromyth about EU regulation of pizza sizes - a subject we all know is very close to your heart!

    I can't believe you've been sucked in by the Euromyths - you really are a totally brain-dead piece of ****!!!

    Yeah, I checked. They basically got shamed into changing the banana law in 2008 but it still makes a good example because it really was something the dumb asses did.
