Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Via Parliament or bypassing Parliament?

Bypassing Parliament is not a good precedent for the future.
Implementing major decisions by the PM alone without Parliamentary review is travelling in a dangerous direction
I agree parliament should not be bypassed, it is clear the decision to trigger Art 50 is final, parliament should rubber stamp it.

Then again I prefer the Swiss method the people have spoken in a referendum so get on with it. Parliaments job is to implement the people's will and make it happen to the best of their ability.

All MP's/parties/house of lords should be part of the article 50 negotiations bringing together all sides of the house(s). It will happen so be a part of those discussions and move the country forward instead of holding on to non-hopes and dead end ideas, stalling via courts and whatever B$ scheme you can come up with to throw another roadblock up. (The Scots/Welsh should also be included)

The UK was once a beacon for democracy it seems it's forgotten what this means.
