Daily Telegraph accused of 'blatant bullying' of Tory Brexit 'mutineers'

Antonio Tajani has turned to tax to plug the Brexit budget black hole

Criticism of the bill was initially focused on its provisions to give powers to ministers to amend the European Union law as it is moved across.

Anna Soubry, one of the leading rebels, initially hit out at the "blatant bullying" by the newspaper of those who intend to defy the government.

But critics warn the European Union withdrawal bill - also known as the repeal bill - represents a power-grab by ministers, while others see the legislation as a chance to shape the prime minister's Brexit policy.

The government were "boxing themselves into a corner" in using the bill to specify the exact date and time of Brexit - 23:00 GMT on 29 March 2019 - he said, because the United Kingdom would be "hamstrung" if the negotiations needed to be extended at the last minute.

Students react to Texas church shooting
The flaps on the sides of a tent that's serving as the worship site had to be lifted so hundreds more outside could see and hear. They were killed earlier this month when David Patrick Kelley entered the church last week and opened fire on the congregation.

"I regret any media attempts to divide our party".

The government faces potential defeat on key amendments to the bill if rebel Conservative MPs ally with Labour, increasing the risks for May's minority government.

It passed at second reading, meaning MPs agree with it in principle, but will now be reshaped to make sure it works and try and make it pass in the House of Lords.

"The Brexit mutineers - Remain-supporting Conservatives rebel against May's move to enshrine in law the date Britain leaves EU", Wednesday's headline read, referring to those who voted to stay in the EU in last year's referendum.

Hearing of NAB references against former PM Nawaz, family adjourns till Wednesday
However, Nawaz denied all the charges pleading not guilty, saying that the proceeding was initiated on political basis. She added that her legal representative, Jahangir Jadoon, will appear in the court in case she has to go overseas .

However Dominic Grieve, the former attorney general who was named by the Daily Telegraph and has tabled around 20 amendments to the bill, told AFP earlier this week: "I'm not trying to stop Brexit".

He said: "I can only see downsides in terms of the government losing control of one of the levers it could use to control the negotiations".

Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said setting a date in law was a "desperate gimmick" that was "about party management, not the national interest".

He said: "Of course I shall be voting with the government tonight, but I very much hope after this debate - as did not happen after second reading - that the government will go away and think about clause six".
