In a few years from now, once we’ve left the EU and are doing quite well the remain side are gonna look back and say ‘ if only we hadn’t been so f***ing thick and bitter, we could have got an even better deal by not making it as hard as possible for our own country to get the best deal possible’

One industry that will flourish in the immediate aftermath of Brexit will be the tissue industry drying all those tears.


I don't share your faith in Brexit, but i do hope that us remainers are wrong.

I guess you’re talking about those idiots in parliament who, from the very start, had no intentions of working to get a good deal. No intentions of doing their upmost to honour the vote if the people . Their only intentions being to try and stop brexit. What a parliament we have eh?

We have a Parliamentary democracy but I suppose we could always have another referendum on whether General Elections should be scrapped.

Course it is. Who did you think was going to run the country when we ‘take back control’?

I suppose we could try a dictator or give it back to the Queen, but for now we have an established democracy. And these are the dickheads people have voted for, repeatedly. More fool them.

Well the government of the day runs the country obviously, with the support, scrutiny and consent of parliament.

When we leave the EU the powers signed away frivolously by various upstanding prime ministers like Mr Anthony Charles Lynton Blair will come back to the government. Some will then go towards the devolved governments around the U.K.

Parliament should not be running things, which is what this amendment is seeking to do. It is a blatant and cynical attempt to prevent any sort of Brexit happening. It is completely unnecessary of course because the government is doing a fine job of f*cking it all up anyway.

It's impossible for parliament to give their consent if they're not allowed a voice. My take is that as Parliament is the ultimate sovereign body with the power to make laws, it has to be heavily involved. Bills can't become law unless passed by Parliament, so I don't see how they cannot have a vote on the Brexit Bill. But I suppose we are in uncharted territory.

We'll never agree. Leavers think Remainers only want to scupper Brexit, and Remainers think Leavers are prepared to screw over the UK just to stick one up Johnny Foreigner.

Probably the only area we can agree on is that the Government is fecking useless and couldn't be doing a worse job if they tried - maybe that's where both sides should be directing their anger?

Parliament is sovereign. Only Parliament can make or amend laws. The government of the day is accountable to Parliament, not the other way around. I have no idea how you think the U.K. works.

“Parliament should not be running things” is quite the daft statement to be honest, leaving aside any views on Brexit.

Parliament vote by 6 to 1 to give the British people a vote on membership and the government said they would respect and implement whatever the result was.

Now that they metaphorically lost the match, they aren’t happy and want a reply.
I’m sure they think we all came over on the last banana boat.
They want to stop Brexit, just like you’d like to see.

The first part of the first sentence is true. The second is irrelevant because we now have a different government and a different Parliament to when the referendum took place. You wanted Parliament to be sovereign, well it is (always was actually). I’ve no doubt that Brexit will happen, what form it takes is another matter entirely.

That’s a ridiculous argument- it’s a different parliament different government lol.
In that case can we get Welsh devolution stopped and revoked.

Where was parliament when Blair took us to an illegal war ?
Where was parliament when Brown sold the U.K. gold reserves ?
Where was parliament when Heath took us into Europe on nothing but lies ?
Westminster gave the people a vote and it’s about time that result was respected.

Aye, and preventing Parliament having any meaningful say and silencing the voice of the 48% is totally not authoritarian or intolerant in the slightest.

Where was parliament when Blair took us to an illegal war ? - voted twice

Where was parliament when Brown sold the U.K. gold reserves ? - not needed, Brown had authority to act, but Parliament did then investigate (scrutinise) through ICO when it was obvious he'd fecked up

Where was parliament when Heath took us into Europe on nothing but lies ? - voted on the European Communities Bill

Westminster gave the people a vote and it’s about time that result was respected - agreed, even though I don't agree with the outcome. I would like us to not abandon our sovereignty in the process though, otherwise we head towards a dictatorship. Parliament *should* be mindful enough that to block Brexit would be political suicide (maybe the Lords don't care about this so much!). But they're not talking about blocking it, they're talking about Parliament being able to explore other options if May's preferred deal ends up a disaster.
