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

You didn't answer to my question last time though.

Given that it was legally an advisory referendum (as per British "constitution") and the head of the government who promised to implement the people's decision resigned the following day, are subsequent governments bound by his own personal promise?
Do they have to honour the promise of someone who upon realising that his promise was undeliverable preferred to just go home instead of honouring it himself?
Yes, because there was a General Election where the current PM ran on a manifesto to honour the referendum result.
