Interesting how the "rebels" label has stuck.......

In normal circumstances you would be correct, but as Parliament voted for the decision to be given back to the people by way of a referendum it is up to parliament to honour it. To say it is advisory means that parliament lied to the people. Mps have a mandate to govern only for so long as the people permit them.
In a democracy sovereignty always belongs to the people.
