Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Lord Mancroft: .... To have climbed that huge mountain yet now to trip over this small step seems too cruel. I hope beyond hope that my DUP friends will see their way through this dilemma. I am what is now called a Brexiteer. Like most people, I struggled to decide how to vote but in the end my heart ruled my head.
