The Amendments to the Withdrawal Bill

There are 191 pages of amendments to the withdrawal bill. Each one is a little patch to apply to the bill as introduced and they don’t make exciting reading. For each one there is a small statement of what they are trying to do, like a pull request there is a description and the diff. There is a big ass PDF file produced of all the amendments, which are freeform lists of what to change. The MPs will then chat about them for 8 days and vote on some of them, spending 15 minutes for each disputed vote as they walk through the lobbies after ringing the bell to drag people out of the pub (really), it is spectacularly inefficient.

The amendment document is fairly consistent, and might well be the output of some kind of document management system but there are no useful tags I could see in the HTML or PDF outputs. Our democracy would be better if the legislature used something structured like Git, but they don’t. Lets add Git for laws to the list of things we could have done instead of Brexit that would improve our democracy without anyone getting hurt. The numbering of the amendments is almost completely incomprehensible, but I extracted the explanatory statements with some tools, this was the key command:

pdf2txt euwithdrawal_daily_cwh_1113.pdf|sed -n ‘/Member’s explanatory statement/,/^$/p’

I then did a bit of massaging of the output with a text editor (mostly to fix spacing and line breaks). I think some amendments might have more than one paragraph of explanation, and some might be mangled by unfortunate page breaks, please do comment if you spot any errors and I will update the list. As far as I can see, none of the amendments address my previously stated concerns. It still won’t explain where the authoritative version of retained EU law will be lodged, and they will go through the whole process of approving this bill without demonstrating that it works on a single complete example of an EU regulation and none of them challenge the assertion that we can process 120 regulations per week for two years solid. I can’t see anything pointing out that on day 1 our law starts out deeply screwed and only gets fixed after two years of having bad law.

There is basically nothing I can do to have an input into this, we are all spectators in this shitshow of incompetence, and we all have to suffer the consequences, but lets look at the next steps anyway. After both sides have done their 8 days of histrionic virtue signalling, all the amendments will be voted down and the Tories will pass this stupid bill, probably with opposition support. In the mean time, our negotiators will fail to do their job and negotiate a settlement of the financial commitments we have made. They won’t even see the shortcut for the lazy that I pointed out. Next week on the 20th the the EMA and EBA contests will come to a conclusion and we will see where our pharmaceutical industry and the city will head off to. Finally we will have about a year of nothing useful happening, before we all get front row seats for an unstoppable cascade failure of basically everything at once.

On that cheery note, here are the explanatory notes for all of the amendments to be discussed in the committee of the whole house:

  • This amendment would ensure that the United Kingdom does not repeal the European Communities Act 1972 and exit the European Union unless and until a new Treaty establishing a future relationship between the UK and EU has been agreed and ratified by Parliament.
