The Vociferous Time Waster

Oh come on

This is normally a forum for smart people. The expressed will of the people was a vote of a minority of the electorate and it was largely based on the blatant campaign lies of the leave camp.

Parliament has been advised that a minority of the electorate have a wish to leave the EU however this desire should be tempered against a need to ascertain what sort of deal we can get and if it is in the interest of the people and meets the terms of the deal offered by the leave camp.

If the government cannot obtain freedom from EU 'laws', curtailing of free movement (while protecting status of British migrants abroad), £350m extra a week for the NHS and full and tarrif free access to the single market then the deal does not have the mandate of that minority of the electorate because that is what they voted for.
