No-deal EU exit 'far more likely' if parliament rejects May's deal - minister

Actually it was Cameron and his govt. that said something along these lines, i.e.  "a once in a lifetime" vote (not leavers) prior to the referendum....

 

Not even leavers are arguing that it is a "never to be challenged, can't be changed, etc etc." result - just that the referendum result needs to be enacted first, and then (of course) remainers are free to form a party (as per UKIP) that supports returning to the eu.

 

 

Parliament are under no obligation to act on an advisory referendum. How many times do I need to tell you?

Back on topic, it does seem that a no deal brexit is becoming more likely to happen by default 😊.

dd,

slow down - the game is still wide open - anything might happen, anything

I agree.

 

All we know is that the majority of MPs support remain, but are worried that if they defy the referendum result it (probably) won't end well for them.

 

'Democracy' is the way they hold power - defy that, and they have lost even the delusion of democracy....

I can only assume that you are extremely pissed?

 

Cameron promised that the referendum result would be enacted - it was only after the referendum that remainers pointed out that legally, it was only 'advisory'....

Cameron  committed himself

Cameron committed his cabinet

Cameron committed the government

 

Cameron did not commit parliament, for good reasons - it was not within his power

Funny how none of the MPs (or media) stated this prior to the referendum result....

The constitution 101 argument for the 10,000 time. No-one in government seems to agree with you about this.

 

Given your expressed wish to disenfranchise (ie remove the vote from) the working class, where are you planning to stop? Women? "Minorities" (let's not forget the British South Asian voters were one of the many groups who tipped the balance in favour of Leave. People on a salary less than nnnnnnnn? People without quaternay education? People who pay less tax than nnnnnn?

 

Would you feel more happy in a more authoritian state? By the way, are you planning to return to your native country after March 29th?

You're leading an army of straw men. While Grouse may wish that his opinions carried the force of alw, whatever his opinions may be about which currently legitimate voters are fit to vote and which are not, a 2nd referendum won't be excluding any of them. 

And it makes sense the South Asian voters would be in favor of Brexit. It eliminates a lot of the competition. Did women vote for Brexit? I think a lot of your straw men are all wet.

As often as you like.

 

And Liam Fox has also given you a gentle reminder.

 

Or perhaps just a little bit of forewarning?

 

See post #58.
