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.
