Last quote by Patience Wheatcroft

I want to know what the terms of our EU exit will be before I vote for it. And I believe the people, not just parliament, have the right to a say. Despite the prime minister’s threats of dire retribution should peers attempt to amend her Brexit bill, the House of Lords this week demonstrated a determination to do its job. Wednesday’s vote requiring the government to guarantee the rights of EU citizens prompted the second highest vote ever in the upper house. Ironically, the record remains with the 1993 debate over the Maastricht treaty to enlarge the European bloc.feedback
