Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
What ‘The will of the people’ was three years ago may not be ‘The will of the people’ now. Only a blind, brainwashed fool would try to use a decision made three years ago in 2016, on the basis of the votes of a minority of the electorate, to influence policy decisions being made in 2019.
The EU Referendum was advisory only and the government is not, and has never been, required to be directed by its result - that fact was set out in the documentation of the EU Referendum Bill 2015. The sensible course of action now is to revoke A50, and for a genuinely cross-party team of MPs to be set up to investigate and report on what the UK’s future steps should be.
