      47 Labour MPs chose to ignore the will of the people.

      Lets hope their constituents punish the scum when they're next up for election and the **** Ken Clarke.
      I think they made fair points and had the right to vote against it. It wasn't blocked which is the main thing but there's a 48% who don't want to leave and many of the 52% that didn't want this kind of exit. MPs must also represent those who didn't choose to vote. Some constitutes voting leave overwhelmingly in which case they shouldn't have gone against it. I'm glad it's gone through, let's just hope the HOL don't delay it for a year.

      It was the only right thing to do. MPs couldn't be in a position where they voted for the referendum and then decided to ignore the result.

      Indeed they have a right to vote how they saw fit, just as their constituents have the right to vote them out.

      The referendum was a national vote, constituencies don't come into it.

      Sorry, all you need to know about the 52% is that they voted to leave.

      "Labour's Chris Bryant said he would go against the majority in his Rhondda constituency which backed Leave on June 23 and vote against the Brexit Bill.

      He said: 'I am a democrat but I believe in the form of democracy that never silences minorities and I think the 48% in this country have a right to a voice and for that matter the 46% or the 45% or whatever the actual figure was in my constituency."

      The referendum was advisory to the government, parliament then represents the people. That's how the parliamentary system works. I personally like the way theresa is going but I understand people's concerns and think they deserved to be heard to. We don't want some sort of tyranny of the majority, that's not how democracy should be.

      Funny how some of the serial remoaners like Anna Soubry toe the line when push comes to shove. Obviously carving out a new niche as an anti-Brexit figure on the 6 o'clock news but can't risk being deselected otherwise she would become completely irrelevant.

      I guess Ken Clarke is planning on retiring at the next election.

      Hopefully the Lords don't try to be stubborn, they approved the referendum bill in the end.

      His retirement has been long known, might have even been announced before the last election, certainly since

      Dunno if they should have had a referendum on such an important thing and deep down I think most of them regret voting for the referendum as they secretly thought they would win it

      Too important for the "ordinary" people to decide, eh?

      The peasant mentality is strong in this one......

      He's not the only Tory europhile though surely, otherwise it wouldn't have become such a divisive issue for the party.

      He announced in June last year that he'd step down at the next General Election.
