Brexit: EU repeal bill wins first Commons vote

The government's bid to extract the UK from EU law in time for Brexit has passed its first parliamentary test.

MPs backed the EU Withdrawal Bill by 326 votes to 290 despite critics warning that it represented a "power grab" by ministers.

More than 100 MPs had their say during the two-day second reading debate, including Labour's MP for Coventry North West, Geoffrey Robinson, who was heavily critical of the bill.

Clearly the bill is full of faults, defects and inadequacies that have got to be put right. The government says to trust us - we'll put them right - and we will bring back and you will see at the end of the process we'll have a bill that will meet the needs of, and guarantee the support of the House. I say no to that."

It's very difficult to predict in the circumstances like the present. I was puzzled, of course I was, but I was puzzled by the Brexit vote. I was amazed by the Trump vote, and other things have amazed me recently.
