Didn’t get the memo: Caroline Flint.

As I write this, time is ticking down to the symbolic first vote on Brexit-related legislation – and it seems some MPs and media commentators are trying to stir up dissent among the Labour ranks.

Caroline Flint, a Labour backbencher, has said she will vote with the government on the bill, which aims to remove democracy from any EU-related lawmaking and make it possible for Tory ministers to change or scrap those laws as they please, using secondary legislation.

Perhaps Ms Flint – oh, and Frank Field, apparently – didn’t get the memo. Here’s a handy, Labour-made video to remind them:

Stop the EU Withdrawal Bill

The Tories are using Brexit to quietly grab power in Parliament. How? With an EU Withdrawal Bill that will give undemocratic powers to Tory minsters. Don’t let the Tories weaken our democracy. Share the facts ↓

Other MPs are lining up to say they’ll vote against this despicable bid to turn the loss of the Tory majority at the general election into a Conservative dictatorship. Here are just a few of their comments:

Any Labour MP who is considering siding with the Tories on this, using the flimsy pretext that it is the only way to support the referendum decision to leave the EU, should reconsider – as should any Conservative, SNP, Liberal Democrat or other MP who values democracy above dictatorship.

They have minutes left to decide.
