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

There were cross party talks, Dinivan. Theresa May invited all the other parties into discussions earlier this year in order to try and break the deadlock. If I remember correctly, Jeremy Corbyn walked out of the first such meeting because Chuka Umunna was present. The facts of the matter is that within this Parliament there is never going to be a consensus on Brexit which is why a General Election is urgently required.

Control over self governance was one of many reasons that people voted for Brexit, Jim2007, it certainly wasn't the only reason. The sovereign parliament "flexing its muscles" has resulted in a complete departure from the political norms within the UK. The speaker is no longer impartial, the civil service is no longer impartial, the courts are being dragged into politics which has now opened the door for them to become politicised in the future, MPs willfully ignoring the wishes of the constituents, a government that isn't allowed to govern nor seek reelection, the list goes on and on. The entire political system is broken.
