Did MPs collude with the European Union over the Surrender Act (also known as the Benn Act)?
According to media reports, the Government has launched an urgent investigation into alleged links between some MPs and foreign governments.
Allegedly, Remain Members of Parliament had help drafting the Surrender Bill (also known as the Benn Bill).
Furthermore, it’s also alleged that Remain MPs have plans for a SECOND Surrender Act.
The Remainers in Parliament are expecting Boris Johnson to refuse to ask the EU for another extension.
Therefore, they want a second Surrender Act of Parliament to allow the Commons Speaker John Bercow to ask the EU for yet another humiliating extension.
Former Chancellor Philip Hammond and ex-Attorney General Dominic Grieve are alleged to have received advice from the European Commission.
The Surrender Act
The Benn Act (known as the Surrender Act) undermines the Government’s negotiating position.
The Surrender Act orders the Prime Minister to write a letter to the EU asking for a delay to Brexit if he can’t get a deal.
The Act even tells Johnson the words he must write!
Boris Johnson said he would refuse to write that letter.
However, a second Surrender Act would give Remainer John Bercow the authority to write the letter instead.
A Number 10 Downing Street source said:
“The Government is working on extensive investigations into Dominic Grieve, Oliver Letwin and Hilary Benn [who tabled the Surrender Bill] and their involvement with foreign powers and the funding of their activities. “
“Governments have proper rules for drafting legislation, but nobody knows what organisations are pulling these strings.”
“We will demand the disclosure of all details of their personal communications with other states. The drafting of primary legislation in collusion with foreign powers must be fully investigated.”
Mr Hammond and Dominic Grieve strenuously deny the allegations.
We shall never surrender our sovereignty to the European Union.
If these allegations are true then these MPs should face a recall petition by their constituents.
According to ex-Prime Minister John Major:
“Words such as saboteur, traitor, enemy, surrender, betrayal should have no place in… our wider society.”
Mr Major believes that using such words is inflammatory!
I say ‘humbug!”
The Surrender Act (aka Benn Act) is an odious piece of legislation.
Furthermore, in World War 2, enemy collaborators were saboteurs and traitors.
They paid a heavy price for the betrayal of their country!
