MP says ‘remoaners’ are sudden converts to Parliamentary sovereignty
John Baron MP will support the Government’s Brexit legislation when the House of Commons votes this evening. The Bill gives the Government the authority to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which will begin the official two-year process of leaving the EU, and was brought before Parliament after last week’s Supreme Court ruling. The Prime Minister has announced she wishes to trigger Article 50 by the end of March.
“The British people made their clear decision on 23rd June, and it is essential that Parliament carries through that decision and votes to give the Government the authority to begin the Brexit process.”
“Meanwhile, various ‘remoaners’ are making surprising arguments. SNP MPs attack the Prime Minister for taking Scotland out of the Single Market, forgetting that is what would have happened had they won the 2014 independence referendum.”
“Similarly, some Opposition MPs appear to have undergone damascene conversions to the importance of Parliamentary sovereignty, despite the fact that they lined up to parcel off large swathes of our sovereignty to the EU when they voted with Gordon Brown to approve the Lisbon Treaty in 2008.”
