David Davis says parliament vote can not reverse Brexit

David Davis says parliament vote can not reverse Brexit

Conservative lawmaker Phillip Lee resigned as a justice minister Tuesday so he could speak out against the policy on Brexit.

Pro-Brexit members of the government want to be able to play the "no deal" card, but the House of Commons, where pro-EU voices are stronger, would nearly certainly reject the idea.

The proposals, which are expected to form the basis of a new amendment in the Lords, would mean that in the event of parliament rejecting the government's final Brexit deal, ministers would have seven days to set out a fresh approach.

"We will wait and see the details of this concession and will hold ministers to account to ensure it lives up to the promises they have made to parliament". May told Tory MPs late on June 11. The Daily Express thundered: "Ignore the will of the people at your peril".

"Remainer MPs have a simple choice: trust the people of Great Britain. or trigger a shameful betrayal". After losing her party's majority in parliament at an ill-judged election a year ago, she now relies on the support of a small Northern Irish party and the distance between victory and defeat is narrow.

MPs will on Wednesday debate a series of other amendments to the bill, which if passed, would seek to force May to change course and negotiate to stay inside a customs union and the single market after Brexit.

She told BBC Radio 4's World At One that "at least half a dozen" junior ministers had been "very uncomfortable for some time" at the Government's direction on Brexit. Conservative MPs keen to retain the changes. May was fatally damaged by defeat, it could open the way for a hardline Brexiteer to take over the party and thereby the premiership.

The government won the first set of votes Tuesday, but looked set to face defeat on the issue of whether Parliament should have a "meaningful vote" on the Brexit deal.

The result followed a day of high drama as a justice minister in May's government resigned in order to back the amendment. "I can not support the government's decision to oppose this amendment because doing so breaches such fundamental principles of human rights and parliamentary sovereignty", he said.

Earlier, most of the original 11 rebels on the meaningful vote amendment had indicated that they would stand firm.

"We will now work with the government to get acceptable amendments tabled in the Lords to address this".

'The objective of the EU Withdrawal Bill is simple - it is putting EU legislation into law to ensure a smooth and orderly transition as we leave, ' she is expected to tell them. "The end of March 2019, we leave the E.U. Full stop".

Labour and Conservative MPs are bitterly split over Prime Minister Theresa May's desire to keep Britain in the European Economic Area.
