If the referendum is advisory Parliament can ignore the result. Have done so in the past.

Dear human, Maybe you had a bad day, maybe the river gave you solace as it does to me - but we couldn’t be more different. To think you can relax, have your hot drink and carelessly throw it away; shows the idiocy of our society. People like you are making my life a misery.

When Daniel Hannan says a second referendum would be “rigged” against Leavers, he means they wouldn’t be able to cheat with overspends, data misuse and Russian backing. Disgraceful. Like Trump Hannan cheats, and then tries to undermine democracy further by questioning the rules

Wow. So now everyone agrees Brexit will make everything shit. But the difference is Brexit people think the shit will do us good. This is a nation experiencing the logic of depression.

The EU are not our enemy. Putin, maybe Trump, certainly the Conservative Party. Not the EU though.

Yes, well corrected, but the same applies to both. They must protect the UK from stupid decisions.

No, it's a parliamentary democracy. They are our representatives, not our advocates. The vote was non-binding. They are here to protect the country, not destroy it. I see many good arguments for leaving but this whole thing has been a shambles.

If we leave the EU the Japanese press have stated that those jobs will be returning to Japan. The Government has to protect the interests of the UK. No deal is a bloody disaster and will be detrimental. They cannot allow that, even if the plebiscite think it is a great idea.

And they will. All of the Japanese car manufacturers will be off for a start.

It’s actually only “Frankenstein” if it’s created in the Frankenstein region of France. Otherwise, it’s a sparkling monster.

Every model run by the WTO sees the ENTIRE agri-foods industry of the UK crushed within 2 years of us leaving the EU. That's 3.5 million jobs. Yet many see scrapping ALL of our 750+ trade deals with 160+ countries & going to WTO defaults as a viable option. Boggles the mind.

Okay, putting this out here now. Because it'll blow a massive hole in if it doesn't come out till later. Blair & Mandelson & Rudd - all involved with - are all compromised by their relationships with Deripaska, a central figure in Mueller's investigation

The problem with leaving the EU with the Tories in power is that we will be a neoliberalist play ground. Stripping environmental and employment protections to make us more competitive. Labour recognise the benefits of those even if they don't like other bits of the EU.
