David Cameron has 'misgivings' about controversial new Brexit bill

Telegraph, 14 Sep 2020
David Cameron is the latest prime minister to express concern about the Government's controversial new Brexit bill, saying he has "misgivings about what is being proposed".

The former Conservative leader said: "Passing an Act of Parliament and then going on to break an international treaty obligation is the very, very last thing you should contemplate. It should be an absolute final resort.

"So, I do have misgivings about what's being proposed."

But he stressed "the bigger picture here is we are in a vital negotiation with the European Union to get a deal", urging people to "keep that context, that big prize, in mind".
