Speaking last week may said “We have 12 objectives that amount to one big goal – a new, positive and constructive partnership between Britain and the European Union. And as we negotiate that partnership, we will be driven by some simple principles: we will provide as much certainty and clarity as we can at every stage. And we will take this opportunity to make Britain stronger, to make Britain fairer, and to build a more Global Britain too.”
Essentially putting Britain first for British people.
Now the Government will issue a bill on the issue tommorow allowing the government power to begin Brexit talks. David Davis, secretary for Brexit has indicited the bill maybe put forward to Parliament within days. The bill which will be issued for first reading tommorow, is expected to face opposition from the Lib Dems, Labour and SNP; who will all seek for amendments to the bill to seek their own objectives from Brexit and may vote against the bill.
However Tory MP Dominic Raab spoke in a bid to encourage Parliament to unite and deliver the wishes of the British majority who voted to leave Europe: “Let’s have an end to the wrecking tactics. Every democrat in Parliament should now support this legislation, so we can get on and deliver on the will of the British people, and secure the best possible deal for the whole country.”
