The BBC has a short memory as it reports this today….parliament to get a vote on Brexit…and if rejects it there will be ‘no deal’…..apparently this is a big concession and surprise…..Kuenssberg spinning away madly for the EU?
Parliament to get binding vote on final Brexit deal
Parliament is to be given a take-it-or leave-it vote on the final Brexit deal before the UK leaves the EU.
Brexit Secretary David Davis said the terms of the UK’s exit, such as money, citizen rights and any transition must become law via a new Act of Parliament.
While any deal would “only hold” if MPs approved it, he said it would not alter the fact the UK was leaving the EU.
Labour welcomed a “climbdown” but some MPs warned of a “sham” if ministers could not be asked to renegotiate.
The BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg said the announcement was significant because it represented a big concession to potential Tory rebels and Labour MPs at a highly important moment in the Brexit process.
Hmmmmm…thought I remembered this…..from February this year….
British parliament will get vote on final Brexit deal
LONDON — Both houses of the British parliament will get a vote on the Brexit deal that Theresa May strikes with the European Union, the government said Tuesday.
Brexit minister David Jones told the House of Commons he expects this to happen “before the European Parliament debates and votes on the final agreement.”
Asked to clarify what happens if MPs and members of the House of Lords decide they don’t like the deal, Jones said “the vote will be either to accept the deal. Or there will be no deal.”
Former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg said: “It is not good enough for the government to offer parliament a hard Brexit or an even harder Brexit.”
