Parliament ratifies treaty changes, it doesn't handle the negotiation of them.

Same as in just about every country with a legislature and an executive.

Yes, but who decides to take or to leave a treaty, constitutionally?

That's the question. ;)

Ask Blair, he's the one who trashed the constitution with random cluster bombs.

Funny how so many criticisms of the Blair tyranny have been proven right.

When you don't have a written constitution how do you solve problems that are not written in your constitution by other than a form of supreme court? By referendums, perhaps?

Good luck with that. :shock:

if the Supreme Court was the House of Lords like pre Bliar then there would be no problem. Having a locus of power outside the Crown in Parliament is very un-British and surprise surprise now the court is looking to sabotage the plebs are all wtf.

And there is a constitution; just spread across multiple documents.

From Magna Carta to parliamentary sovereignty. But no mention to non-binding, advisory referendums.

It ain't over till the fat lady sings.

But in the mean time dance as much as you can. :lol:

The House of Commons just motioned to invoke Article 50 in March.

That's what this thread is about. ;) Parliament has expressed it's intent.

I know that. ;)

But invoking Article 50 is not Brexit. There will be another vote, either the Parliament votes, or the Parliament votes for a binding referendum. ;)

Mark my words.

Oh there will be another vote, sure. To ratify the process.

Theresa May is riding pretty high in the polls. The opposition is being annihilated at the polls. And there are a lot more eurosceptic diehards than there are europhile diehards in her party.
