Backwoodsman BS: UK: Petition to Parliament re Brexit (97* d) RE: BS: UK: Petition to Parliament re Brexit 27 Mar 19


I've been searching gov.uk recently for the section in the Bill where it clearly states that the result is 'advisory only' and is not binding on the government. In the aftermath of the referendum, I located it several times but I didn't bookmark it - bugger, damn and blast!!

However, in my recent searches, I've been unable to find it. If I had a particularly suspicious nature, I'd probably be inclined to think that a devious and deceitful government of the kind we currently have has removed that section from the on-line documentation. Surely not? Why on earth would they do that? (Anybody know the HTML for a 'Tongue-in-Cheek' emoticon?).

And, after three years of wriggling, obfuscation, and bare-faced lies, the Leavers are still lying to us - including lying by the government in the email received overnight from the 'Petitions' site. As Steve has pointed out, the Referendum was not an 'instruction' to the government, it was an advisory expression of opinion yet, in the email, they claim they have no option but to Leave, because they have been 'instructed' by 17 million voters. Another bare-faced lie in a long list of bare-faced Leave lies.

Oh, how we Brits laughed when Americans lost all sense and reason and elected Trump as their president! The Yanks are definitely getting the last laugh now - at us.
