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

"she was elected by her party" actually she was not, they never had the vote.

Let us try to keep to the truth here
Yes, let's. She won 2 out of 3 rounds of voting, both by wide margins. For the 3rd round the other candidate dropped out citing lack of support from Conservative MPs. If that's not wining a vote I don't know what is.

As for a referendum only being advisory and not binding Parliament has never rejected the results of previous UK/National referendums held. So not only has that set up in the minds of the UK public that a referendum is in fact binding, there is precedence - and I would argue that makes legal precedence too - that Parliament cannot now vote against Brexit.
