Remember: when Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) is published today, the government wanted it to go through on nod on back of Saturday's vote

Also remember: government could have published draft WAB at any point in last year for comment/consultation, but chose to hide it instead
I once asked someone who would know why the government had not published WAB in draft form for comment/consultation

Their reply: you will know why when you see it

Today we find out whether they were joking...
If you remember the "Great Repeal Bill", there were many provisions for implementing the withdrawal agreement - including wide Henry VIII discretionary powers - which were cut (chopped?) just to get the bill through

This is where they may reappear
Me back in March making very same point, two weeks before first departure date

And February



The WAB has been hidden a mighty long time
See @pauldalyesq's informative thread on all this from February
