I find it amazing that after 3 years Brexiteers can’t see where Brexit is heading.

 

Fail to plan, plan to fail.

This line of your post reminds me of who is actually and "in control" of Brexit.

 

It is the Remainer PM, the majority of her cabinet (at least those who don't have the decency to resign) who took on the task of delivering Brexit, fully and completely to the people, who entrusted her/them with this task.

 

From what I have seen in the past 3 years make me weep with frustration and rage.

 

IMHO Blind Freddie's dog could do a better job.

in your opinion

 

the election commission in the UK might think otherwise as would our current government as do 17.4+ million people

 

you cannot rerun a referendum before the first one is implemented - any simpleton gets it

You implement an ADVISORY referendum by listening to the advice. Full stop. You are not obliged to take the advice, especially when it results from lies and fraud that would have rendered it null and void had it been decisive. Which it wasn't.

Keep dreaming Mr Tusk. There are signs the EU is cracking, while the Leavers resolve is becoming stronger in the UK.

it might have advisory if that was how it was intended - it wasn't and everyone knew that before they voted

 

what lies ?

 

decisive ? you don't think that 1.3 million people was decisive - that's almost a 3rd of the total population of Ireland decisive

 

Wrong. For the millionth time. Referendum's can only be advisory under British constitutional law. The fact the Tories and Labor parties chose to say they would respect the results, and Cameron promised, with no authority to do so, is neither here nor there.

 

Parliament is the sovereign body and must decide. Not clown Cameron, treasonous Theresa, commie Corbyn and his marxist mates or the Tory and Labor parties. MP's have to decide.

 

Lies - were you asleep when Boris, Gove, Farage, and the sinister R-Mogg deliberately mislead the electorate over and over again. You really think the NHS will get the 350m GBP per week?? 

An expert was recently interviewed on the BBC. She said the average trade deal negotiation and concluding takes 7 years! Boris had people believing it could be done on the back of a fag packet in Sparrow's fart time! Gove with his "Britain will hold all the cards - <deleted>!" Just a few.

 

The UK population is 67 million. Ireland's population size is of no relevance. What is relevant is that the % difference was very small.

And pray tell what happened to all those champions of Brexit politicians?

 

They all buggered off and to date have not issued one single plan of their own. Promised but not delivered. <deleted>!

He never said that; it’s just another example of Brexiteers manipulating facts. 

 

No, it doesn’t. 

Yes it does.

Indeed, let's stick to the laws.

 

The relevant laws in this case are those created by The European Union (Withdrawal) Act of 2018. This act, was passed by a thumping majority (some 500) MPs. Those MPs had been sent to parliament by a General Election in which both the party which formed the government and the main opposition stood on manifestos declaring that the UK would leave the EU. So that is the law, it clearly stated that the UK would leave. 

 

Now, that law can of course be repealed by parliament. In doing so they would spark a massive constitutional crisis, since such a repeal, unless preceded by a general election would contradict both the referendum instruction and the subsequent general election. I guess that neither party has the courage to do that.

 

So that is the law, it is not affected by the meandering dreams and wishes of Mr Tusk, or your enthusiasm for telling us what we should do!

 

You are correct and illustrate how parliament and the two main political parties in the UK have created the constitutional mess we are now in.

 

Many MP's who voted for the EU (Withdrawal)Act 2018, I believe did so out of: obedience to party whips; a desire for their own political survival; career advancement etc rather than a conviction that leaving was in the best interests of the country. Ever since they have been trying to find a way to water it down, to leave without "leaving" whilst still be able to claim with some weasely words that they implemented Brexit and pat themselves on the back. Labor have the added objective of trying to discredit the government and Tories and get themselves in power to wreak their havoc.

 

In short, our current bunch of MP's haven't got the courage of their convictions, are too self interested and failed to do the job they were elected to do.

 

The only two real choices were to stay in the EU, with the deal we had, or leave with no deal and then negotiate a new trade deal and relationship. One they went down the road of seeking a watered down exit, with all sorts of links still there; and paying a big price for it, they played in the hands of certain EU leaders and governments. The out put was May's crap deal which very few want because most can see it's crap. Labor are proposing worse, which will cost more, but spending tax payer's money comes very easy to them!

 

Now parliament has hamstrung itself. They have voted that leaving with no deal is not an option; have rightly rejected May's crap deal; don't have the stomach for a GE or another advisory referendum and are even more scared, for their own careers, of withdrawing Article 50.

 

I have no idea what the solution will be, but I doubt it will be good.

because 17.4 (and a majority of 1.3) million people said so - get over it 

 

And 16.1 million said so.

 

Now, explain why you think leaving is the right decision. Or is the question too hard?

nice try 

 

I'm going to guess from that post you are either Irish or Scottish or just a sore deluded loser - the referendum was run - the leave vote won - get over it and move on

 

 

and on the subject of Irish - their only concern is possibly losing free access to the UK's NHS for which they contribute nothing  

 

Ignoring your insults to different peoples within the UK, and assertions that voting for Brexit means that someone is English or isn't deluded which it doesn't, I will try to answer civilly and simply for you.

 

You clearly don't understand or want to understand the constitution and governance of your own country. So I suspect you have no idea about the EU either.

 

Repeating parrot fashion, over and over, that "we won" isn't of any consequence. No one denies that more people voted in an advisory (that is what it legally was regardless of what you think or wish) referendum.

 

The advice does not have to be taken and can be ignored at any time by parliament. It does not "have to be implemented first" as you keep also insisting.
