Brexit White Paper Basically Reveals The Reason For Leaving The EU Isn’t True

Post by Guest on Thu Feb 02, 2017 6:10 pm

Parliament has been sovereign the entire time we’ve been in the EU but it “hasn’t always felt like that,” according to the Government’s plan for restoring parliamentary sovereignty through BrexitArguments for leaving the EU - from immigration to regulation - rested on the idea that EU membership eroded parliament’s sovereignty.

The day after MPs voted overwhelmingly to trigger Brexit, the Government published its much-anticipated 77-page White Paper on how we will leave the EU that bizarrely says: “Whilst parliament has remained sovereign throughout our membership of the EU, it has not always felt like that.” Labour MP Jess Phillips said it “made parliament sound like a stroppy teen” and Financial Times leader writer Sebastian Payne called it “the most idiotic bit” of the paper.

Lawyer and legal journalist David Allen Green noted the sentence and said of the Government: “Bless the little snowflakes.”

He added: “Parliamentary Sovereignty doesn’t care about your feelings.”

He questioned how Britain could leave the EU within two years of triggering Article 50, as Theresa May has pledged, when “it cannot produce a half-decent White Paper after six months”.
