Its obvious isn't it.

They don't like Parliment or the law getting in their way of their head long rush back to 1950.

No, but they can probably spell 'Parliament' and know that 'headlong' is one word.

But then it turns out that the Government doesn't have the power to make the changes needed for the UK to leave the EU.

Instead, Parliament must agree to it - since Parliament is supreme. And despite banging on about Parliamentary supremacy, it seems that many Brexiters are suddenly not so keen on it.

They are also not as keen on British law, British judges or the constitution anymore.

This leads me to believe that many Brexiters are either ignorant with regard to the UK political system or didn't actually care about the above at any point.

Making mistakes in grammar when your trying to mock others for this is not impressive.
I assume you meant to say
"You must have had some help from a remainer"

Anyway, the public voted for Brexit, if Parliament vote against that this is not a democratic process, the public would be unable to hold parliament or the government to account.

That is effectively a dictatorship masquerading as a democracy.

If we don't get brexit the next action will be for people to take law into their own hands.

I cannot see this ending well, in that scenario the public either take law into their own hands, or forever surrender to a dictatorship that does not listen to or respect them.

Neither scenario is good.

I think parliament will vote for Brexit though.

Democracy is when a majority of people are given the right to decide their government and what happens in their country. The EU Referendum was a democratic vote. The majority of people voted leave and that should be respected.

Democracy is not what the law says or what parliament says, it's all about what the people say. Brexiteers are simply angry that their democractic vote isn't being respected by those higher up on the ladder. It isn't a case of not being 'keen on British law', it's the fact that the particular piece of legislation relating to Britain's withdrawal from the EU conflicts with what we understand to be democracy.

A total disregard for our constitution :no:

We live in a Parliamentary democracy - not a direct democracy.

So it is Parliament which holds he power.

Parliament have already had their say though. MPs voted 6 to 1 in favour of the European Referendum Act 2015 to allow the people to decide their own future.

They were just arrogant and never expected the public to defy them.

People forget where MPs and parliament gets its power it is from the people, so if they abuse that power people will react angrily.

Yes but Parliament are elected by the people and have to act on behalf of the wishes of the electorate. Parliament do not have the right to diseregard the vote.

We give power to our politicians, it is not their power it is our power. However, we only exercise this power during elections (hence why we say power is returned to the people) - at any other point in time, Parliament is sovereign. Therefore this whole need for Parliament's approval is a legal one, not some political manoeuvring.

Yours -

A Brexiteer.

You are just jealous because I thought of the question first. No one remembers who came second.

It's democracy. MPs are elected to act in the best interest of their constituents, when so many people are unaware of what's in their best interest it's the responsibility of those elected to represent their best interests do what needs to be done.

But as other people have said, it's funny how so many people want British law to be sole and supreme but then when British law isn't what they wanted they change their mind.
