As the result of the 2016 was only "advisory" how about the next government be it Conservative, Labour, coalition hold another referendum and clearly state "we will be bound by your, the peoples, decision.

I take it that you didn't read the leaflet regarding the last referendum when exactly that promise was made.”

And I take it that you didn’t read my post explaining the principle of ‘Sovereignty of Parliament’ that you people claim you voted Leave in order to uphold, nor the extract from the Briefing Notes to the EU Referendum Bill which I linked to in my later post?

For such a promise to have legal authority, it would need to be embodied in the Bill for a second referendum - something that wasn’t the case in the 2016 Referendum.
