Brexit and the High Court

SHARE

Remainers support parliamentary sovereignty like an electric chair supports your back.
(This is a rehash of Lenin who said that the Bolsheviks should support British Labour leader Arthur Henderson "in the same way as the rope supports a hanged man".)

Heath signed the EEC treaty on 22nd Jan. 1972 and then put the bill before parliament. Double standard.

    This is a dangerous moment in our democratic history. If elected MPs do not uphold the referendum result, the idea of parliamentary sovereignty will be rendered meaningless.

    1. Brexit is certain but I agree that to defy the result would end faith in the democratic system. It won't happen.

    2. "Like all good dramas, the Brexit story has been shocking, dramatic and upsetting. But its ending is not yet written."

    3. The result was not extremely close. It was decisive and there is no rowing back. The FT is passionately pro-EU like The Economist and not to be trusted.

  2. To paraphrase Augustine in light if the Brexteers perversion; Oh Lord give me Parliamentary sovereignty and the rule of U.K. Law, but not yet.
