Or, over half the country was being forced to remain against their will.

Now you are being nonsensical. There was a referendum. Unsurprisingly, the majority decided the outcome.

Although Nigel Farage did say he would not accept such a close vote if it were remain and would consider it "unfinished business".

Not that your argument is relevant, but I think both sides used 'project BS'. Mind you, we haven't left yet.

Here's an article published before the vote in which he warns that a '52-48 result would be unfinished business'.

Funny how, because it went his way, it's not interested in this any more.

Well that's it then, go back to parliament. Ooh exciting times ahead. Not the judgement many wanted, but it's right, under the law it's right. Theresa needs a better lawyer if he didn't see that one. dry.gif

I'd like to think it helps for more representative legislation, unless the Monster Raving Tories decide to keep things from the house!

Because that's how our democracy is set. Members of parliament represent their party and constituents. If the cabinet decided, then that would mean fewer people would be represented.

We're leaving, I'm losing my rights as an EU citizen sad.gif. Faceless bureacrats in Whitehall will take over from faceless bureaucrats in Brussels until Trump sorts out a trade deal with us that will grant power to faceless bureaucrats in Washington. Then we will make a deal with the EU and the faceless bureacrats in Brussels will be back. There will always be faceless bureaucrats, I could never see why I should worry about where their offices were.

Meanwhile the devaluation of the pound means my savings are worth less and my pension is worth less. The only ray of hope is that increased inflation might see a rise in interest rates at last.

Oh I dont know Blackdog, it always seemed to me that being a citizen of the EU was rather similar to being a citizen of the USSR. Unless you lived in the controlling state, pity you!
