TORY UK GOVERNMENT CLEARLY SEEKING ROUTES TO IGNORE THE LAW
September 10, 2019
In the farce that was last night’s parliamentary session I challenged the Tories and the Prime Minister to confirm that he would obey the law, after MPs passed a law instructing the Prime Minister to secure an extension to Article 50 to avoid the UK crashing out of the EU with No-Deal on 31st October.
Repeatedly the House has been told that the UK Government would obey the law but would also leave the EU on 31st October. These two statements are contradictory unless the Prime Minister is intent on evading the law as it stands.
It is increasingly obvious that this government is involved in backroom shenanigans to undermine democratic processes and has no interest in the rule of law, displayed for all to see as last night’s proceedings descended into chaos from this incompetent and untrustworthy government.
