LORDS & SNP COULD DERAIL BREXIT BILL

Establishment still trying to water down and kill off UK’s EU exit.

The Scottish government have said they will refuse to back parts of the Brexit Bill if sweeping concessions aren’t granted to Holyrood.

The Great Repeal Bill, which will repatriate thousands of EU laws from Brussels back to the UK, was announced today in the Queen’s speech and would come into effect immediately upon our formal exit from the EU.

Within hours of the announcement, the SNP were calling for a separate vote in Scotland to determine whether or not they would grant Theresa May permission to repeal EU laws,

It was also suggested that Labour and Lib Dem peers in the House of Lords could derail Brexit by constantly sending the Bill back to the Commons with amendments which would inevitably water Brexit down.

Normally, Lords would be unable to block a government’s manifesto commitment, however, given that May failed to win a majority, some are speculating that the law doesn’t apply and Lords are free to vote as they please.

Nearly a year on, the battle for Brexit goes on…
