And the point of having a second non binding referendum would be??? The High Court just confirmed the U.K. Is governed by a sovereign parliament not a sovereign people.
Your right. There wouldn't be any. In fact given that it was mainly Scotland and London that voted to stay and lots and lots of the midlands and the north of England voted leave the leave decision would have been much easier to get to if we had just had the mp's vote to start with. Still makes me wonder why people keep banging on about the wishes of the 48% who were on the 'losing' side being ignored this time, because as you say, it doesn't really matter what they think. The only thing that matters is mp's legally speaking.
