Tories have approved their EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill – after making it WORSE

Boris Johnson: Give it a few months and he’s likely to be the only person happy with his Brexit law.

It may be hard to believe but the Tories have changed their Withdrawal Agreement Bill – the Brexit Bill – yet again, right before bulldozing it through Parliament.

The Bill, as passed yesterday by 330 votes to 231 – a majority of 99 votes, all of which were Tory – has stirred up a huge amount of outrage.

But most people voted for it – right?

It enshrines in law that the transition period must end in December this year, making the possibility of a “No Deal” Brexit almost certain.

But most people voted for it – right?

It makes the possibility of Scotland splitting away from the United Kingdom more likely, as SNP MPs and MSPs have made it clear they cannot accept the Bill.

But most people voted for it – right?

Also opposing the Bill are MPs from Northern Ireland. The DUP – who propped up Theresa May’s minority Tory government for two years – abstained from yesterday’s vote because they disagree with Boris Johnson’s plan to have a customs border in the middle of the Irish Sea.

But most people voted for it – right?

According to Labour’s David, Lammy, “Thousands of jobs will be lost, young people will lose the right to live and work freely in 27 EU countries, our rights and freedoms will be eroded, and our NHS is at risk. All we will get in return is a third-rate trade deal with Donald Trump.”

But most people voted for it – right?

And Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesman Alistair Carmichael said the Tories had supported “a bill that strips away our guaranteed environmental protections, despite the fact that we are facing a climate emergency”.

But most people voted for it – right?

    No matter what is said or written now this is a Tory plan or project, they called the Referendum they fought elections on this basis as well. They have told the rest of the population you lost. Now what ever happens is their problem, I appreciate if and when it goes wrong the press will spin the Jam tomorrow story and the politicians will blame the weather or the EU. The role we should now take is holding them to task, no excuses this time.

      I have said much the same.
