The EU withdrawal bill is nothing less than an executive coup | Rafael Behr

Read the Brexit fine print. The biggest peacetime transfer of powers from the legislature in living memory would damage democracy in BritainWhen designing a weapon, it is a good idea to imagine it falling into the wrong hands. The same principle applies when politicians ask for new powers: benefits of the advertised use must be weighed against the potential for misuse. There are legislative weapons so powerful that no government can be trusted with them. Related: The Brexit bill is cataclysmic. Only a swerve will save us | Polly Toynbee
