I didn't call anyone thick. People don't want to spend or have the time to learn. Much easy to be fed the "information" by their biased resources. The 2 main party's hands were tied by the idiot Cameron at the last GE.
" Not once were we given a chance to vote on these treaties" correct but you voted for representation in the parliaments in the form of MEPs and MPs. This should never have been given to the public to decide on. Too big an issue and far too nuanced for the majority of the public. If you wanted to leave then put a leave party in Government, that's how it should have worked.
I'm hoping May is defeated again but I think she will somehow scrape this through.
I forgot about Sinn Fein and the speaker and his deputies who don't vote, that means there should 639 voting MPs
There are 650 MPs. That means only 563 and 536 voted, I think that's disgraceful. When they keep going on about democracy and they can't even be bothered to vote. Have I missed something? Did that many MPs really not vote?
You are right we would have remained but the pressure to have another referendum because the vote was 52-48 and non-binding would have been on the PM and government constantly.
No, I was answering your question " Do you think if Remain had won that we would have argued for three years to try to accommodate the losing side?" and providing evidence why I think there would have been a fight from the leavers.
According to Farage leavers would have fought it. "In a 52-48 referendum this would be unfinished business by a long way. If the Remain campaign win two-thirds to one-third that ends it." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-eu-referendum-36306681
I knew the Gina Miller would be one you bought up :-D First 2 are about the same thing, the Gina Miller case which was "submitted that the government could not trigger Article 50 and begin the withdrawal process without first giving parliament a free vote on the issue". That was the case not to stop Brexit although she was hoping parliament would but that wasn't what the court case was about. ...
