The UK parliament is sovereign so even if the people chose to exit the EU, the parliament could overthrow it? And would it?
I doubt it, not if they wanted to be elected next time around. Even if Parliament is sovereign, you don't make a fuss about holding a referendum to decide a major issue and then ignore it. Not if you want to have any political future.
