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

Speaker John Bercow made a passionate intervention in Parliament defending MPs.

"None of you is a traitor. All of you are doing your best. This should not be and I’m sure will not prove to be a matter of any controversy whatsoever."

He went on: "From the Chair, let me say that I believe passionately in the institution of parliament, in the rights of members of this House, and in their commitment to their duty," he said. "The sole duty of every member of parliament is to do what he or she thinks is right."

May had attacked MPs for refusing to support her Brexit deal yesterday, saying "Parliament has done everything possible to avoid making a choice."
