EU Withdrawal Bill – the quislings, the gutless and the sneaky

Guido has the list of MPs who betrayed the country in the wee hours:


Naturally they include Lucas and her Greens, LibDums and all Labour, bar seven. No kudos to Flint for sitting on the fence trying to have a bit each way – gutless and no friend of this country.

Sarah Champion voted against democracy yet again, after having temporarily been forced into doing the right thing over Rotherham. Spineless, self-serving vacillator.

However, as with all those hiding under rocks, the bad Tories also have a raft of little nibbling amendments to gnaw away and water it down, up to party conferences. And don’t forget the Lords traitors still to come.

For those who’ve been on the Planet Zog or are not British, it:

. overturns the ECA 1972
. withdraws from ECJ jurisdiction
. converts existing EU law to UK
. puts it into a Retained EU Law so it can be repealed, reworded or just kept by Parliament.
. covers other admin

One reader made a good, if vehement point about Flint and anyone else who abstained:

ANYONE who abstained from voting, should NEVER be allowed to vote on ANY matter, at ANY time in the future. THEY were elected to cast a vote – it is NOT a choice – abstention is dereliction of duty, and MUST be punishable.

Meanwhile, SCOTUS has overturned Ninth Circuit’s restrictions on Trump’s temporary travel constraint on citizens of certain countries.

    Interesting who’s worse – Flint or Champion. Champion who was forced into redeeming herself on Rotherham, went quisling again, voting against. But at least she voted, which is her job. Flint gutlessly abstained on the most important vote in 40 years, failing to be any use in parliament at all for her constituency.

    They will never give up, the EU will have their moles in place long after Brexit , imagine the KGB with an even bigger fan base than they had in the labour party throughout the cold war.

    How strange for Labour to vote that way because they all said with one voice, and again and again that they “respect” the result of the referendum.
    But then we have been saddled with their hypocrisy on Brexit ever since Independence Day of June 2016

    Nevertheless, the most important parliamentary vote in modern history has passed in accordance with the will of the people. Off to the pub to celebrate. We can piss in the traitors’ beer later when we have a full bladder.

    MPs are elected to represent their electorate. MPs should have voted as their constituents did.

    However, any MP who didn’t vote as their constituency did should be sacked. They’re blatantly not doing their job.

      Errol, whilst I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiment, it is unfortunately not the way it works. The MP represents their party in the constituency and from time to time write letter to various government ministries on behalf of their constituents. Essentially they do their party’s bidding (via the whip if need be). You are operating under an illusion that MP’s represent their constituents – they don’t.

      Moreover whilst Labour say that they “respect” the result, they actually do nothing of the sort, and what is more look down their nose, sneer, smear and denigrate those, like me who did vote to leave.

      OOL is right – they are gutless, sneaky quislings.
