For a laugh run through it. Judge rules mps must vote. Mps vote to remain. What do you do next given 52% of the people who voted did vote to leave?

It's a real question.
Fixed that for you.

My real question is "why was it a "non binding" referendum"? I do not know but it certainly allows for the possibility of a reversal.
It also maybe complicates the legal situation. If there is no Parliament vote on invoking Art. 50 then does a non binding referendum provide a sufficient legal basis to invoke?
