Yet they spent 9 million making it. And none of these were brought up during the campaign.

Nevertheless the outcome will remain the same. All that's been confirmed today is that Parliamentary representative democracy is not democratic.
Bollocks!

This would most likely have not been the case if Cameron had stayed in office, because then it would have been a democratically elected PM triggering Article 50. This has mainly come about because, as I keep telling people but they didn't believe me, Theresa disMay IS NOT a democratically elected PM. She is in power by Royal prerogative and as such, does not have the power to change the laws of a sovereign nation.


There are only two courses of action open now that I can see. Either, have a General Election or have a Parliamentary vote on the matter. At this point in the whole sorry saga, those are the only ways that duly elected MPs and a PM can legally trigger Article 50.


If you wanted all UK sovereignty to return to the UK, then get used to this because that's how the law works in a sovereign nation. British judges upholding British law and the British constitution. You wanted it! You've got it!
