Former UK Prime Minister and remainer who failed Britain in EU negotiations previous to Boris Johnson have come out strong against Internal Market Bill. Mrs May labelled this Bill that’s being pushed through Parliament as “reckless” and was only placed to “appear tough” in front of the EU.
Theresa May told the House: “I believe that the Government’s willingness unilaterally to abandon an international agreement it has signed will lead to some questioning about the willingness of the Government to fully uphold the measures in the Belfast Good Friday Agreement. “That, in turn, will lead to some communities having less willingness to trust the United Kingdom Government.
“That could have a consequence on the willingness of people in Northern Ireland to remain part of the United Kingdom. “It is far from acting to enforce the integrity of the United Kingdom.” Continued saying: “In pursuit of trying to appear to be tough to the European Union, I think the Government is putting the integrity of the United Kingdom at risk.
“These reasons alone I think should be sufficient for the Government to abandon these clauses. “But perhaps the most compelling reason is my third, and it is this Government’s wish to break international law, and taking powers to do so. “As the Law Society and the Bar Council have said, these provisions enable UK minister to derogate from the obligations of the United Kingdom under international law in broad and comprehensive terms, and prohibit public bodies from compliance with such obligations.”
Theresa May said she was concerned about this Bill saying: “They represent a direct challenge to the rule of law, which includes the country’s obligations under public international law. “I cannot emphasise enough how concerned I am that a Conservative Government is willing to go back on its word, to break an international agreement signed in good faith and to break international law.”
It seems that Theresa May negotiated for the EU in Parliament when she was PM, and she’s doing the same now with these scathing statements. Why do these Pro EU remainers hold the EU high above the security and stability of our United Kingdom.? The Bill passed it first-round vote last week with a majority of 77, Johnson has also done a deal with some Tory rebels, but as with anything, nothing is certain that these rebels will vote in support with Boris Johnson’s Bill even after a new amendment being implemented in the Internal Market Bill
