Theresa May is laughing at you, because she is one step closer to eliminating your rights, as enshrined in EU law.

The House of Commons has supported a Bill to throw away democracy and let a minority Conservative government tinker with the laws that protect our rights.

The result of 326 votes to 290 against – a majority of 36 – was a huge majority in favour of the EU Withdrawal Bill for a government that, on paper, shouldn’t be able to get anything through.

We can assume that the DUP has helped, despite the question mark hanging over the Tory bribe of £1 (£1.5?) billion to the far-right Northern Irish party.

But there is also the question of Labour turncoats who supported the Bill, claiming that they were following the will of the people after the EU referendum. In fact, they are doing nothing of the sort.

If the Bill had been defeated, the government would have had to devise a new one – perhaps one that considered democracy the better way, rather than the dictatorship being pushed at us now.

This is only the Second Reading of the Bill, and it should be remembered that detailed discussions are to follow in the Committee Stage, that may see amendments being made that could change all our minds. But will they?

The list showing how MPs voted has not been published at the time of writing. When it is, I’ll try to publish it here.

I would strongly urge anybody who believes in democracy to check how your MP voted and, if they supported the Bill, contact them and demand to know why they are trying to turn the Mother of Parliaments into the Mother of Dictatorships.

And publicise their answers in the local press and on the social media.
