Hilary Benn: Why is he apparently the only MP demanding clarity on BoJob’s political declaration?

While MPs have decided to take the extraordinary measure of sitting on a Saturday to decide whether to support Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal, it seems no-one wants to talk about a document that is just as dangerous: Boris Johnson’s political declaration, setting out the future relationship the Tory government wants to have with the EU.

Fortunately, Labour’s Hilary Benn has tweeted about it:

As I type this, Theresa May – formerly the worst prime minister in the history of the UK – is saying there should not be a new referendum just because people don’t like the result of the first. That is misleading.

The intention of any new referendum would be to ensure that the people of the UK are getting what they want.

The information trickling like molasses from Downing Street suggests strongly that we are not.

Is that why Boris Johnson wants to deny us the democracy that would provide clarity on this?
