    I am sure they will and then all the MPs will vote for Article 50 because that is what we the people voted for.

    Yea, sadly I expect this to happen although we all know that the majority of people don't want Brexit. Sadly the majority stayed at home on referendum day.

    Dude, these people work for us!
    Indeed they do - to protect us from the Executive (the government) - to ensure that the legislature (parliament) can determine what is best for us.

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    The people in my constituency didn't. And whether we did or not is frankly irrelevant - my MP should vote in accordance with what he thinks is best for his constituents and the country, and that may well be different from what his constituents might want - our MPs are not delegates.

    You have a very warped view.... We the people voted for what we wanted, no need for local MPs in this case. The MPs are there to vote for what he/she thinks is best for their constituents unless there is a referendum where we the people get to go direct with our views, as we did.


    No point in a referendum if the MPs then vote too.... You might have time in your life to vote just for something to do but I don't.

    Re: Article 50

    Ooh, how exciting. Part 1 of my preminition is coming true. OK, here's what happens next.

    They have to vote and the MPs vote narrowly not to invoke article 50. This leads to quite a few political casualties (but not Boris who will claim he was never actually in favour of it all along) and the rise again of UKIP, who will drag the swivel eyed loon Farage back out of retirement for the 5th time, and they will get a few seats in the next general election that is called pretty quickly.

    In the mean time the government then negotiate a better deal with the EU which will calm some of the fears of the more rational brexiters. This will still allow us access to the single market but put some kind of nominal curb on immigration. The more crazy fringe meanwhile are not happy, but then again they never will until we go back to the 50s and deport all Syrian refugee children. The pound will then rise against the Euro and we can afford to go golfing in Portugal and Spain once again.

    Then after a few years the more prominent Brexit MPs will die off and the younger generation who have grown up in a more multicultural society will kind of go, meh, it's not perfect but it's better than being a little Englander. And it will go away as an issue.

    My view is not warped - what I am saying is just FACT in respect of the UK constitution. And whether you like it or not - or whether you were misled by Cameron saying he would implement the result or not, the referendum was simply not binding and it is the duty and right of parliament to consider and vote on this matter.

    Re: Article 50

    Excellent news! Very unlikely to derail the calamity that is brexit (IMO of course) but hopefully now the exit deal will be subjected to proper levels of scrutiny to prevent the tories pouring the baby out with the bath water.

    If we're really lucky we might actually get the general election Theresa May should have called on day 1!

    In the mean time the EU will crash a burn and non of this will matter apart from the fact that we will have even less respect for our own system and the unrest will be dangerous.
