11th April Brexit Update

Since my previous update, there have been several votes in Parliament. I did not support extending Article 50 beyond the 22nd of May which is the date where European Elections would need to be held, but Parliament voted to allow this and last night the European Council agreed to a formal extension of Article 50 to the 31st of October 2019. 

Further votes this week were on amendments from the House of Lords to the Yvette Cooper Bill and while I strongly disagreed with this Bill and the rushed way it was taken through Parliament, I supported the amendments as they were design to improve this hastily constructed and poorly worded Emergency Bill.
