Welcome to your new rulers: UK Commissioners Gove, Johnson and Cummings
The government is using Brexit legislation to hand itself huge new Henry VIII powers to rule over large parts of this country's affairs by decree. Be absolutely clear. The Tories are now set on destroying our parliamentary democracy.
"Henry VIII” powers [are] statutory instruments...allowing ministers to change the law by decree...which Parliament has 90 minutes to debate [and] if MPs don’t spot it is already law...bills are littered with these powers –40 in the agriculture bill alone"
”Henry VIII” powers 'These are orders allowing ministers to change the law by decree – either putting down an order which Parliament has 90 minutes to debate or a negative order -that if MPs don’t spot it- is already law unless Parliament can overturn it'
