No it isn't. It's the after-the-fact realisation of what Brexit actually means, and desperately finding some way to leave without actually leaving. That's what's causing the consternation. Bureaucracy? Hardly. Article 50 could have been triggered from day 1, before anyone realised what Brexit really meant.

I am sure that TGA ,Dick would rather live under one if their EU dictatorships than in the UK where the rule if law is paramount rather than political panicking on the part if the government.

Today’s vote is officially symbolic and not legally binding.
All this amendment is doing is to try to bind Parliament to the will of Theresa May, not the will of the people and the rule of law. As was the Supreme Court appeal.

I thought we were supposed to be leaving to put our Parliament in charge (taking back control), and that the EU was a dictatorship. Theresa May is acting like the dictator here in refusing to allow our elected representatives to represent us all.

Very quietly, Liam Fox admits the Brexit lie


Members of the WTO have things called schedules, these are basically a description of your trading relationship with the world. They list things like your tariffs and your services commitments. Britain's are currently held under an EU umbrella and they'll need to be extracted ahead of leaving.
UK’S COMMITMENTS AT THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION:Written statement - HCWS316


"In order to minimise disruption to global trade as we leave the EU, over the coming period the government will prepare the necessary draft schedules which replicate as far as possible our current obligations."
So we're repealing all these EU laws post-Brexit (not really, they will be just moved into UK law (which they already are)) and our current trade deals will change very little under WTO rules.

So why are we leaving? And why are we leaving an alleged dictatorship and replacing with an actual dictator.

Every day, brexit means brexit is looking more and more like " brexit " we have not got a clue.
The story of the emperors new clothes comes to mind.

It is not clear from the report whether they are considering the effects of cutting the overall number of migrants or free movement of EU migrants. They are separate issues.

Do try reading the link properly please. Here's the first paragraph.


A major cut in immigration from the European Union to Britain after Brexit would produce a damaging long-term hit to future economic growth while yielding only a “modest boost” of under 1% to the wages of low-paid workers, new research has found.
What does the first nine words say? I've made them bold for you.
