Tory MPs in Turmoil: Amendments to EU Retained Law Bill Spark Calls for No-Confidence Vote

Tory Party in turmoil

Conservative MPs are considering submitting letters calling for a no-confidence vote in their leader following their "betrayal" over the EU Retained Law Bill. The bill would allow thousands of pieces of EU laws and regulations to remain in the British statute book, which has angered Brexiteer Tory MPs.

The EU Retained Law Bill is a key piece of Brexit legislation that has been the subject of much debate in Parliament. The bill would see EU laws and regulations incorporated into UK law following Brexit, with amendments made by the House of Lords causing controversy.

MPs' Reactions

Tory MPs have expressed their frustration over the amendments, with some claiming that the decision to water down the bill in the Lords was made by Business and Trade Secretary Kemi Badenoch with the blessing of the Prime Minister. This has led to calls for a no-confidence vote in their leader.

Direct Quotes

One MP stated that "Kemi just kept digging a deeper hole for herself, she kept saying 'I have decided' when this is the most important thing to happen to this country in a lifetime and the Commons voted through this legislation unamended." Another MP added that "really this is so bad that we are now in no confidence vote territory."

Another MP urged colleagues to "stay calm," while a former minister argued that "nobody believes Kemi decided this on her own. It had to have come from Downing Street."

In conclusion, the controversy surrounding the EU Retained Law Bill and the amendments made in the House of Lords has caused frustration among Tory MPs, with some considering submitting letters calling for a no-confidence vote in their leader. The situation remains fluid, with tensions likely to continue to rise in the coming days and weeks.
