Brexit Control

In a little noticed post Chris Leslie MP has suggested that the draft EU/UK agreement for Brexit will establish a committee with powers to bypass Parliament altogether.  As he says: "Far from restoring power to a sovereign legislature as promised, it looks like ministers are trying to roll back on the three-hundred-year-old constitutional principle that the Crown governs through parliament."

Such an agreement would, for the first time, put a huge range of powers totally beyond any Parliamentary scrutiny whatever and therefore entirely out of the hands of the voters.
