British Ministers are expected to try to overturn an embarrassing defeat in the House of Lords on the Governments Brexit Bill when the legislation returns to the House of Commons.
Peers in the upper chamber defied Prime Minister Theresa May in favour of an opposition amendment, guaranteeing the rights of EU nationals living in the UK after Brexit.
The Government said the defeat was disappointing but made clear they are determined to reverse it in the lower chamber.
Shadow Brexit minister Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town warned against EU nationals being used as bargaining chips in negotiations to quit the EU.
She said: These people need to know now not in two years time or even 12 months time. They simply cant put their lives on hold. I now want to say to the Government: you cant do negotiations with peoples futures. Theyre too precious to be used as bargaining chips.
There is a growing consensus that this issue must be resolved before Article 50 is triggered, and the Prime Minister is becoming increasingly isolated.
But, some pro-Brexit MPs were angry with the peers, arguing they were frustrating the will of the elected House of Commons over the Brexit Bill.
The Globalist Elites in the House of Lords will not go quietly. Nonetheless, the People’s Will can not be denied.
They may delay but cannot deny.
The Brits have their own DEEP STATE.....
Well, maybe they should have kept it hereditary and not opened it to fat cats!
They’ll end up nullifying Brexit and declaring Britain a part of the EU Caliphate. Watch.
