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

Yes they certainly have. They have not once held a clear position and not once shown any regard for fulfilling the outcome of the referendum. What they have done is to try and block any attempt to achieve Brexit (deal or no deal)
This to me just sums up the stupidity of this entire situation, you vote in advisory referendum with no legal means of enforcing it, elect a parliament in which no party has a mandate to carry out the result of the referendum and then blame parliamentarians who are against it and are in any case are only accountable to their local constituency for not delivering it.

Do you even understand that to restrict an MPs right to act would be a fundamental breach of the concept of a representative parliamentary democracy?

It seems to me that before taking back control you need to have a conversation about how that control is going to be exercised!
