its already law..........

and the numbers at the moment don't support anything else......

Did you miss the bit where it was found to be legal to withdraw Art. 50 without needing the agreement of the other EU members?

 

Where are these "numbers"? I also find these daily polls a bit mystic meg, have you ever met anyone who has ever been polled in one?

. Parliament is indeed sovereign but with that power comes responsibility.

Says the avid brexiteer who is constantly bleating about "making our own laws" etc etc.

I think Labour was absolutely right to remind the government that it's parliament that is actually sovereign and not the cabinet. Especially since Gina Miller took them to court recently on this very issue.

But you said they forced the government to put out the legal ramifications of Brexit. They didn't. All of the substance was already in the public domain. They forced them to release a specific private advice document. So in the future anyone giving the government "confidential" advice will be much more guarded about it for fear it might finish up verbatim in the Sun with their name attached. That was the principle the government tried in vain to defend.

The Sun?  That well known bastion of left leaning anti-Brexit sentiment?

I did think it amusing the Sun trying to peddle their cheap holiday offer, using an advert with some douche nozzle ruining peoples holidays with a drone.

no but you clearly missed how i have been saying that for years this was covered by the vienna convention......

it certainly confirmed the ecj is nothing but a political court.......

they would still need a vote in parliament and another to remove the laws past........

Excuse me but after their attempts to circumvent the sovereignty of parliament, thwarted by Gina Miller, I wouldn't trust this shower any further than I could throw a steamroller. Neither should anyone else with a modicum of intelligence.

So did this information have a security classification? I mean "a private advice document" means what exactly? My guess would be "Don't let the Opposition see this!"

Refreshing naivity though.

not talking about polls......

numbers of mp's that have publicly declared how they would vote.......

less than 10% support another referendum (60)........

209 mp's oppose a no deal exit........( the same number approx objected to the laws already passed to leave on a no deal)

when you see something over 300 mp's then you'll know if parliament can do anything.......

You’re a more trusting man than me if you believe that all politicians will do as they say they will. Tuesday next week should be entertaining.

But the point remains there was nothing new in the humble address release that wasn't in the earlier legal summary to MPs and expanded upon in the AG's very comprehensive statement to the House. Cox came to the House and said "ask me anything". They did. He spent hours answering everything candidly. He didn't wrap anything up. It wasn't good enough for them because they wanted their five minutes of willy waving. When the private advice was released it was just the same. Unless you or the Guardian think there is more? Well, you can't trust this lot any further than you could throw a steamroller, can you? Perhaps they redacted the juicy stuff before releasing it to thwart the will of Parliament? Eh? :)

So now you can explain how they could possibly know the contents without actually being given the documentation?
