Amendments to routine financial bills vital to continued Government funding have been tabled by Dominic Grieve and Margaret Beckett in an attempt to stop the Government leaving the EU with no deal on 31st October 2019. The idea being that unless the Government comply with the non binding amendments, funding will be stopped for vital services which could bring the country to a standstill. Not sure how that will play with the electorate, but, it will not stop a determined Prime Minister running down the clock to UK’s new “exit day”. The law is clear, that the UK leaves the EU on 31st October 2019 with or without a deal in place, and parliamentarians cannot stop that happening no matter how hard they make it for a new PM and Cabinet. We’re talking about Members of Parliament attempting to create anarchy, in order to prevent, “catastrophe” should the UK leave to trade on WTO terms. I’m sure this ploy by Grieve will help him gain the confidence of his association when they come to select a candidate to put forward at the next election.
