Important information

Let's get this straight: the legislative supremacy of the British Parliament was destroyed by the European Communities Act of 1973. Since then European legislation has been supreme. The EU Bill, which, incidentally, still has a number of stages to get through, is not of any real importance except to show up, yet again, the supineness of the so-called Tory eurosceptics. More on the debate and the vote tomorrow when I can put up a link to the formal Hansard.
