THIS MUST BE STOPPED!!
THE WHOLE POINT OF LEAVING THE EU WAS TO GIVE PARLIAMENT THE POWER TO DISCUSS AND DECIDE BRITISH LAW, NOT FOR A CABAL OF PRIVILEGED TORY SCUM TO RAM THEIR GREEDY TWISTED IDEOLOGY DOWN OUR THROATS!
Theresa May is poised to make an unprecedented attempt to fix the parliamentary system, allowing her to grab sweeping powers ahead of Brexit, The Independent can reveal.
A late-night Commons vote to secure the Conservatives the muscle to use so-called “Henry VIII powers” to make new laws – behind the backs of MPs – will be staged next week.
...It will allow the Tories to pack a crucial Commons committee with their own MPs, in defiance of Parliament’s rules, in order to carry out the power grab.
To win the vote, the Conservatives will need the backing of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), under the much-criticised “cash-for-votes” deal that props up Ms May in power.
...The bid to seize control of the Committee of Selection comes despite unequivocal advice from parliamentary officials that the Tories must not do so, after losing their Commons majority at the election.
...Among key rights at stake are protections for British workers and consumers, environmental standards and whether powers will be devolved across the UK, or hoarded by ministers.
