even though all the indications are that they are now a minority and they have never had the decency, courage and sense of democracy to ask the poeople whether that still beelieve this suicidal nonsense
I don't believe it

My number(17,400,000 to leave was bigger than your number(16,100,000) to remain. That means I am in the majority, you are in the minority.Democracy is to honour the will of the majority. Do you have a problem understanding big numbers? or do you simply like to post arrant nonsense?

An unusual article in the guardian today. It actually makes a kind of sense. "Of the six Labour MPs who rebelled and voted with the government on Saturday, only one, Caroline Flint, is standing again in the next general election. But in her constituency of Don Valley, which she has represented for 22 years, that decision seems unlikely to be a costly one.Explaining her decision, Flint revealed a stark statistic: in the mining villages in this part of South Yorkshire, she wrote in the Sunday Times, 80% of voters backed leave in 2016 (over the whole constituency the figure was 68%). Parliament has not been listening to these people, she wrote: “The voices in our mining villages remain unheard, despite their support for Labour over many decades.”

None of your totally discredited Burke being a berk garbage in this neck of the woods.
