My #Remainer's Diary Day 300: I mull over a joint statement from the First Ministers of Wales and Scotland, Carwyn Jones and Nicola Sturgeon about the repeal bill. It says: “We have... put forward constructive proposals about how we can deliver an outcome which will protect the interests of all the nations in the UK, safeguard our economies and respect devolution.
“Regrettably, the bill does not do this. Instead, it is a naked power grab, an attack on the founding principles of devolution and could destabilise our economies.”
So a constitutional crisis that was latent ever since 23rd June 2016 is due to be thrashed out in Westminster debates.
A spokeswoman for the Maybot said she was not aware of a contingency plan for what might happen if Scotland or Wales refused legislative consent.
That is apart from the rows there will be about the bill's Henry VIII clause powers and putting human rights in doubt.
As the clock ticks, businesses act to protect themselves.
EasyJet announced that it is establishing a new airline in Austria, with HQ in Vienna, and registering 110 aircraft to fly under the new licence and air operator's certificate. This accreditation and re-registration process will apparently cost the airline £10m.
A spokeswoman for the Maybot said the decision was a commercial one for easyJet.
I don't think that is true. If the Government's course of action results in an airline's existing accreditation being rendered useless for the main part of its business, what choice does the airline have?
Barclays Bank said in a statement that it is talking to regulators in Dublin about extending the range of activities of its existing licensed banking subsidiary.
