MPs back Johnsons EU withdrawal bill
We are one step closer to Brexit. That’s what the Prime Minister told the Commons today after his withdrawal bill was passed by a large majority.
It still has some hurdles to clear – but it now looks certain the UK will leave the European Union on the 31st of January.
The bill is not exactly as it was before – most notably a clause on workers rights has been removed – and one has been added which would make it illegal for the transition period to extend beyond 2020
