PM must stop playing fast and loose with rule of law

Responding to the statement by the European Commission confirming that, if adopted as it stands, the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill would “put at risk the ongoing future relationship negotiations”, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Christine Jardine said:

No one can really be surprised that the measures the UK Government have brought forward have put the likelihood of a trade deal in jeopardy.

This proposal undermines trust and the UK’s standing on the world stage. The Government must now act swiftly to erase anything that violates international law or that could undermine the Good Friday Agreement.

For the sake of the future of our country the Government must stop playing fast and loose with the rule of law.

  • This is what happens when an ideological policy is pursued at the expense of everything else. It’s a bit like falling in love with and pursuing someone who it is obvious to everyone else you have no chance of having a relationship with. I don’t think our PM listens to anyone except his own thoughts.
