From the people who so proudly brought you “Our Sovereign Parliament”, we now have “Parliament doesn’t need to know anything”.
The Government is yet again trying to play fast and loose with principle, never mind with the rules. It has received legal advice and is refusing to disclose that legal advice, despite being instructed to do so by Parliament.
They have also published an impact analysis that includes the now discredited and abandoned Chequers deal, but does not evaluate the impact of the deal Theresa May has agreed with the EU.
The Home Office a.k.a. Sajid Javid also admits that the “Immigration Paper” he said was to be published in July might not now be published until AFTER the vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal on 11th December.
Not for the first time, Theresa May and her cohorts in Whitehall are showing themselves to be far worse than their fictional devils in Brussels.
They try to hide the Brexit negotiations, the effects of these negotiations, and the legal arguments they intend to use when brought to book in court.
They keep things as far as possible from oversight, whether it’s facts and figures, or even whether they have done the due diligence on their self-serving course of action.
They are deliberately hiding the true comparison between an aspirational, undefined future relationship with the EU and the factual (and actual) benefits that the UK’s membership of the EU provides.
The cherry on the cake is that they refuse to obey their bosses, our democratically elected representatives in Parliament, unless they are put in an arm lock.
We went to the courts to compel Theresa May to respect Parliament in 2016.
Will Theresa May have to be forced into respecting Parliament once again?
The intellectual cowardice of a Prime Minster who says that asking the people what they think is denying their will is stunning, and shows the depths to which Theresa May has sunk in order to protect herself.
We value your support. Just keeping track of the campaigns and challenges that have objectives that match our own takes time and effort, much of what we do costs money that we can only afford to spend with the financial support of people like you.
Many people have contributed not once but multiple times and we know that there are practical limits on what people can do. Whether you can make a contribution (click on the image above) or not please spread the word among your contacts and on the social media.
Our aim is to help people see what’s going on, understand what they are, or aren’t, being told, and decide what is the best outcome for the UK: an outcome in the national interest, protecting fundamental citizenship rights and ensuring Parliament and not the executive is sovereign.
There is still a long way to go and there are no guarantees about what the outcome will be. The only thing that is certain is that if we stop trying we will lose.
To help protect our fundamental rights, and support Parliament in safeguarding them, please support us so we can maintain our campaign and make your voice heard.
Please share this article as widely as you can, thank you very much for your support.
