PM resigns as Britain votes to leave EU


It's a time-honoured parliamentary procedure (cf Robert's Rules of Order) to require a two-thirds majority for any motion that takes rights away from members.

It's seems slightly cynical that the same majority isn't required to decide an issue that could have an adverse effect on the electorate's rights.
