Theresa May found in CONTEMPT of parliament in first time EVER over Brexit legal advice

THERESA May's Government has been found in contempt of Parliament over its refusal to publish its full legal advice on the Brexit deal in a massive blow to the Prime Minister.

In dramatic scenes at Westminster, the Mrs May’s Democratic Unionist Party allies joined Labour and other opposition parties to inflict defeat on the Government by 311 votes to 293. The humiliating division came shortly before the Prime Minister was due to open a five-day debate on her deal, amid widespread expectations that her proposals are set for rejection by MPs. It is the first time in modern history that a Government has been found in contempt of Parliament.

Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said that the finding of contempt was "a badge of shame" for the Government, with "huge constitutional and political significance".

Sir Keith said: "It is highly regrettable that the Government has let it come to this, but ministers left the opposition with no option but to bring forward these proceedings.

"By treating Parliament with contempt, the Government has proved it has lost its majority and the respect of the House.

"The Prime Minister can't keep pushing Parliament away or avoiding responsible scrutiny."
