No, it's about the conditions of leaving, namely the single market.

Excellent news, let's hope they win the appeal too.

This isn't about stopping Brexit, it's about how it happens - parliament must have the final say. Any Brexiteer who says otherwise clearly doesn't value sovereignty or democracy.

OK. That's not the same thing as "bye bye Brexit". Maybe try thinking for once.

Must it? Surely Direct Democracy trumps Representative Democracy in this situation?

If the roles were reversed, how would you react if the UK population had voted to Remain but Parliament elected to Leave? Would you still claim the same standards?

I don't see how some posh ***** in parliament going against the vote of the citizens would be valuing democracy.

"Parliament must vote on whether the UK can start the process of leaving the European Union, the High Court has ruled."

Sounds pretty much to me like Article 50 can only be triggered with Parliament's approval.

How stupid. This was a referendum, the people voted LEAVE and that's what should happen. It doesn't matter what way you voted, it is a democracy. Many lib-dem and labour voters don't seem to like that word!

That is a totally different issue to what you said in your post though. Where you said it wasn't about triggering it or not...

And why, most MPs were against it, no? Do you think they will suddenly now say well I will listen to my constituency? Perhaps. But if I were you, I would be worried.

And you Ben Anderson have no clue what democracy is.

Or are you saying every single thing decided by Parliament and not by referendum of the people, is not democratic?

Not really. It just means they need to vote on it. MP's are unlikely to go against the will of the people via the referendum.

Parliament is formed from our democratic electorates (aside from Theresa May :P) and remaining in the single market was not actually a condition we voted on in the referendum.
