Re: Vote Leave fined for promoting Brexit

@SolidSquid

"a larger number abstaining from voting"

So the poor excuse for losing one of the highest turn outs in voting is that more would have turned out for your opinion if they thought it was binding, although Cameron made no doubt in his very clear statements that he intended to go through with whatever the decision was?

"parliament would just do what they wanted to anyway (rather than blindly following it without even doing any planning prior to invoking Article 50)"

The lack of planning was however part of the rigging of the vote. That is why it was such a shock that in such a rigged vote with the government directly threatening its own population to vote its way that the population voted in their best interests and didnt cave to government force.
