The BBC are reporting that the House of Commons and the House of Lords are fighting over whether or not the former should have a meaningful vote if the government fails to make a deal with the EU regarding Brexit.
I am confused.
It looks like this House of Lords is trying to force the House of Commons to accept that it has the power to have a 'meaningful vote' on the final Brexit deal, even though the House of Commons has said that it doesn't want that power.
Given the House of Commons has rejected the option of having a meaningful vote, why is there any point in the House of Lords trying to force it to have that option? Surely any argument used to convince MPs to vote against having the option to vote, would also convince MPs to vote the way the Government wanted?
