Labour pulled the Government back to the House of Commons today to answer series questions over what they intend to do next week with the third meaningful vote and the Statutory Instrument – the measure needed to change our departure date from the EU.
I pointed out to the Minister, that outside of Westminster their are people trying to plan their lives and organise their businesses but can’t because of the utter confusion at the heart of government.
The response was not reassuring at all. The Minister talked of ‘hopes’ and ‘intends’ but could give us a date. That’s all we wanted and that is all people want across the country.
The contempt being shown to Parliament and the people is negligence in the highest order. The next seven days are going to be the most important in modern UK history and it is time our Government acted in the national interest and not in its own.
