Quote from: Matt2112 on September 18, 2019, 00:50:50 amApart from all the other thorny considerations, what would be the legality of a party cancelling the implementation of the Brexit vote?This would surely be challenged, just as Boris's prorogation has been - and I assume previously untested, also just as Boris's prorogation is.It's a hideous mess any which way you turn.
Quote from: DavidL on September 18, 2019, 01:05:34 amYes, we are rapidly descending into a country where judgement on political decisions will be decided in the courts rather than at the polling station. All because the losers dug their heels in and refused to give their consent to the referendum result.
Quote from: döm on September 18, 2019, 07:51:35 amIn answer to Matt's point I don't believe referendums are legally binding so it wouldn't be an issue for the courts.

Quote from: Matt2112 on September 18, 2019, 13:25:52 pmIt's also cynical, opportunistic, pig-headed and morally dubious, if not inexcusable.

Quote from: The Letter R on September 20, 2019, 17:05:04 pmJust wondering how many kids on Climate Strike today expect to be driven from their front gate to the school gate on Monday in their parents 4x4......... I'm all for doing my bit for the planet but what some people are calling for is an overnight change of life that none of them would ever accept - they're probably the same people that called the Police last year when their local KFC ran out of Chicken for a couple of days!!
Quote from: captainkurtz on September 20, 2019, 17:19:16 pmYAgree with all this. BUT it does raise awareness and make you think. I've recently gotten rid of my disgusting 4x4 and opted for something, er, a little less polluting. I'm stuck with it for 3 years but the next one will be a hybrid or electric.same thing with plastic - I'm much more careful about that than I was 12 months ago...
