Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The sands of time are running out! A General Election is just over the horizon, where the electorate will have the chance to dethrone the rebels wholesale and have payback for their constant cheating, mendacity and absolute betrayal of their election manifestos.
There are several here that like to quote Burke. But seemingly they overlook the fact that when he spelt out his position(I go my own way-Bollocks to the Burghers) to the good Burghers of Bristol they lost no time in making his arse grass.
Never again was he elected to Parliament, he was selected to represent Rotten Boroughs.
    This little bit of history encapsulates a "lesson learnt", shortly to be harshly brought home to those MPs so full of hubris that they cannot see.
This will truly be a popcorn moment to savour and enjoy. Democracy will be restored and the people regain their sovereignty!
There seem to be some here argue that Parliament is sovereign.The antics of the treacherous bercow and the rebels patently illustrate the absurdity of such a definition. The only word that describes their most recent activities is a coup.
A coup d'état, also known as a putsch, a golpe de estado, or simply as a coup, means the overthrow of an existing government; typically, this refers to an illegal, unconstitutional seizure of power by a dictator, the military, or a political faction (the remainiacs)

concepts of sovereignty
by Kofi Annan
State sovereignty, in its most basic sense, is being redefined—not least by the forces of globalisation and international co-operation. States are now widely understood to be instruments at the service of their peoples, and not vice versa. At the same time individual sovereignty—by which I mean the fundamental freedom of each individual, enshrined in the charter of the UN and subsequent international treaties—has been enhanced by a renewed and spreading consciousness of individual rights. When we read the charter today, we are more than ever conscious that its aim is to protect individual human beings, not to protect those who abuse them.

Interesting discussion
