BORIS Johnson has defended his controversial new Brexit bill as he faces a huge MP rebellion during tonight’s vote.
He led tonight’s debate over the controversial bill by urging MPs to support the Internal Market Bill and “preserve” free trade between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
His plea came hours after David Cameron became the THIRD Conservative former PM to condemn Boris Johnson’s plan to redraft the Brexit divorce bill, saying he had ‘misgivings’ about the bid.
Mr Johnson faces rebellion over plans to change the Brexit treaty, which former Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has also slammed.
Mr Cox said: “Breaking of the law leads ultimately to very long-term and permanent damage to this country’s reputation and it is also a question of honour.”
