Right For the Wrong Reason – The WA Requires Public Approval

7

May has dug up the decaying corpse of the WA from the crossroads and, provided she doesn’t see sense in the next couple of days is re-animating it. This time she is tying a public vote on with a ribbon to make it more appealing to hard core remainers who want a second referendum by another name.

Actually she is correct that the WA should have a public vote to approve it, but for the wrong reason.

As we have previously pointed out:

Our Parliament ought not be competent to give away UK Sovereignty to external control

Even the government agrees this:

Parliamentary sovereignty is a principle of the UK constitution. It makes Parliament the supreme legal authority in the UK, which can create or end any law. Generally, the courts cannot overrule its legislation and no Parliament can pass laws that future Parliaments cannot change.

The WA locks us into the EU’s torture basement forever.  Therefore it cannot be passed by Parliament alone. It should need to be approved by a public vote, with the obvious alternative being Leave on WTO terms.  Which would win hands down.

We need a Brexiteer Gina Miller to jump on this.

We need a Brexiteer Gina Miller to jump on this.

But the legal establishment would reject it, unlike Gina and Jolyon’s efforts. What, you thought they were there to uphold the rule of law??

…unlike Gina and Jolyon’s efforts…

I was under the impression that young Jolyon has not yet broken his Brexit-busting legal duck….

I’d thought that Jolyon was also a back of Gina’s challenge, but I may well be wrong.

Vince Cable has been pushing for a referendum with three choices, Remain, WAB and WTO. It would be hard to argue that he is unaware that this would cook the books in favour of Remain and that it is morally reprehensible to do so. To use Mr. Cable’s phraseology the proposal is bollocks.

The first ref took Remain off the table.

That should have been the case, sadly many of our elected representatives have other ideas.

We are either in the EU or out. It’s binary.

It is the job of a Leader to consider issues and make a decision. This is, for example, what Churchill did. He would have either decided in or out, and would then have run plans accordingly.

May, instead, is not a leader. She is a vacillator. Hamlet would have been proud of her.

What a tragedy!
