Remoaner MPs ‘to BLOCK Great Repeal Bill’ in bid to frustrate Brexit after election shock : Express

REMOANERS are confident they will be able to vote down the flagship Brexit legislation because the Government is now so weak.

After a disastrous General Election in which Theresa May lost her parliamentary majority, anti-Brexit MPs believe they will be able to defeat the crucial law once it is brought to the Commons.

Dubbed the ‘Great Repeal Bill’, the legislation will transfer decades of European Union rulings and judgements on to the UK statute book so they can be changed or scrapped at a later date.

Mrs May has described it as an “essential step” on Britain’s departure from the EU.

The Prime Minister called Thursday’s snap election in part because her previous slim majority in Parliament would make the bill difficult to pass.

But now the Tories have lost their majority and must now rely on Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionists to prop the Government up, diehard Remainers in Parliament are increasingly certain they can stop the law in its tracks.
