GMB, Britain’s general union, has responded to Prime Minister Johnson’s attempt to sideline Parliamentary democracy.

Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary, said:

“For a Prime Minister who wanted our Parliament to ‘take back control’ this is as ridiculous as it is worrying for the very foundations of our democracy.

Johnson can’t have it both ways - the public didn’t vote for No Deal, if he’s so sure he’s in line with the ‘will of the people’ there’s a very easy way to find out - call an election and let us have a public vote.

“This is now going even further than a backroom Westminster stitch up, it’s a coup that leaves far too much power in the hands of an unelected Prime Minister.”
