The House of Commons publishes its Daily Order Papers with a summary agenda. On Monday 28th January 2019 the House Business includes “Section 13 Of The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018
The Prime Minister
“That this House, in accordance with the provisions of section 13(6)(a) and 13(11)(b)(i) and 13(13)(b) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, has considered the Written Statement titled “Statement under Section 13(4) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018” and made on 21 January 2019, and the Written Statement titled “Statement under Section 13(11)(a) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018”and made on 24 January”.
There are a series of amendments. Rosie Cooper MP has signed an amendment (i) by Caroline Spelman MP “and rejects the United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a Withdrawal Agreement and a Framework for the Future Relationship”.
Rosie Cooper voted to trigger Article 50. Now it has become apparent from her support of the amendment she may have decided it’s a bad idea to Leave. Perhaps we ought to be told what she really thinks. She won’t need reminding that her constituency voted by 35,323 to 28,546 on a turnout of 74% to leave the EU.
In passing I noticed a reference to “40 Brexit Troublemakers”. Readers might identify the usual crowd. Some are simply rebels, some represent their constituency vote. Others have political dogma. And some are deadbeat political pygmies who left, or are leaving, this once great country in the state it’s in today.
