每日新闻更新 — 卑鄙的背叛 The Daily Update – Contemptible Betrayal

对英国脱欧进行“决定性投票”之前的五天辩论昨天拉开帷幕,不过结果非常残酷,首相特蕾莎·梅在下议院遭受三次失败的打击。内阁和首席检察官杰弗里·考克斯(Geoffrey Cox)被发现藐视议会,他们试图平衡“某些相互冲突的宪法问题”,他们原以为只发布首席检察官的脱欧建议纲要(周一公布)佐以对考克斯先生的三小时的质问将最有利于国家利益。

但工党的影子脱欧大臣凯尔•斯塔默爵士(Keir Starmer)辩驳说,通过不公布这项法律建议,“政府故意拒绝遵守本议院有约束力的命令,这是对本院的蔑视”。而首相的发言人则强调,“内阁部长有权获得坦诚的法律建议是政府运作的重要组成部分”而不必担心有关内容被公布。但是因为北爱尔兰民主统一党支持谴责隐瞒“全面和最终的”法律建议并“要求立即将其公布”的动议,议员们以311票对293票的结果否定了上述辩解。今天这份法律建议将全文公布,正好同时所有诸如此类的标题 — “蔑视议会”和“宪法危机”— 都将出现在各大媒体的头条。激烈的辩论将在今天和整个星期继续下去,议会将于11日星期二对英国脱欧的协议进行投票(如果届时仍有一个还在运转的下议院的话)。

英格兰银行前行长默文•金(Mervyn King)也对这项脱欧协议发表了措辞严厉的评论;他将这项协议比作“纳粹的绥靖行为”,并在彭博社发表了一篇不留情面的文章,其标题为“梅首相的脱欧协议是对英国的背叛”;他在文中指出,“政府假装一切都可以推迟,直到可以通过谈判达成虚构的长期协议为止。这是多么幼稚的行为,现实已经证明这是个巨大的灾难。原本的‘令人畏惧的工程’现在已经成了‘不可能完成的工程’。这是一种莫大的无能。”他在文章的结尾总结道,“如果这个议会向其继任者留下这个选择 — 要么接受令人感到羞辱的投降,要么废除有约束力的国际条约,那么它将不会得到宽恕,并且不值得被宽恕。”
