    Given that the Tories would be under a 3 line whip, that the DUP will vote for it and that the Corbyn 40 would not oppose it i suspect there probably is a parliamentary majority.

    Use parliamentary sovereignty to make sure there will be less and less of it for evermore.

    Not just that but any Labour leave voters would be seriously pressed to vote for them

    I'm being petty here, but I don't think people trust the government anyway.

    the day parliamentary sovereignty trumps the vote of the populus is the day our established values of democracy and equality is brutally slaughtered.

    "let's give them a vote"
    "oh, they didn't vote how we wanted. let's ignore them"

    ^if you can say this about referenda, why not general elections?

    "oh, they didn't vote for the lib-lab-con hard enough, let's make up some more 'instrumental' results - it's for the public interest"

    see how natural the second scenario sounds after the first quotation?

    Brexit was a couple of months ago. As hard as all breakups are OP, you need to let go and move on.

    "17.4 million voting for Brexit is not enough"

    *calls for 650 people to vote on it*

    Ladies and gentlemen, the amazing intellect of remoaners.
