Last night MPs in the House of Commons passed the Brexit Bill. The Bill will now head to the House of Lords so that peers can debate and vote on it.
Brexit has the biggest mandate in the history of British politics and this Bill was overwhelmingly passed (without amendment) in the House of Commons. House of Lords approval should and must be a formality.
I well remember the furore in 2003 when the House of Lords voted down the bill on foxhunting, leading to a massive public outcry before the law was eventually passed.
