Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
It seems all are now confirming the Benn wrecking bill has now become law. It was nodded through the commons(not even counted), encouraged through the Lords at top speed and now given Royal Assent. One must ask the question why?
I suspect the bill has a fatal flaw contained within that will invalidate it. I could be wrong but we shall see. There may well be a case to answer in the Courts concerning Bercow dismissing the need for Queen's consent, and how it may impact the Queen's Perogative and thereby does need queen's consent. Such decisions are normally within the remit of the speaker, HOWEVER........... I see choppy waters ahead.
All will come clear in the fullness of time no doubt.
