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

If this gets blocked on some ridiculous out dated legal pretext then there will be seventeen and a half million very pissed off people. Just imagine the protests. If this is blocked either of the following will happen:

1) May calls a General Election over single policy of Brexit and strolls to a 100+ majority
2) Royal prerogative (equally outdated) is used to invoke Art. 50 anyhow

Either way, the outcome remains the same. Brexit will happen.
Well let us take the example of a constituency that is 60% pro-Brexit.
In a future general election there are three pro-Brexit candidates (Tory, Labour, UKIP) sharing 60% of the votes and one Remain party (LibDem) looking at 40% .
So who has the best chance of winning the seat?
