              Acting on the Brexit vote without consulting Parliament is not legitimate as only 37 per cent of the population voted to leave the EU – and the Government is “enacting a kind of coup” by trying to do so, {Brainless} A C Grayling has argued. In an exclusive interview with The Independent, the philosopher dubbed the ‘brains of remain’ said a general strike should be called if the Government attempted to trigger Article 50 without a parliamentary vote or a second referendum.

theresa-may-article-50-729543Theresa May, currently in India to secure vital post-Brexit trade deal, appears to be drawing-up a rough copy of Article 50 in a bid to speed up Britain’s EU exit.

It means the proposals could be put before parliament sooner than first thought, setting the Brexit wheels into motion.

The UK voted for British withdrawal from the EU in the June 2016 referendum. In October 2016 the prime minister, Theresa May, promised a “Great Repeal Bill” which would repeal the 1972 act and import its regulations into UK law, with effect from the date of British withdrawal. The regulations could then be amended or repealed on a case-by-case basis.[7]

In R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, the High Court held that under the act, the government did not have the power to trigger the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union using the royal prerogative. Through passing the European Communities Act, Parliament had made European Union law part of UK law, which could be undone only by the action of Parliament, under the principle of Parliamentary sovereignty.

I have come to the view that “Sir” Bob Geldof has become an even bigger media whore than he already was.  His actions in public during the demonstration on the Thames recently showed him for what he is, a liberal media darling who seems to think he can do what he wants & say what he wants to the detriment of others.  Well, in this heavily Censored piece I give it back to him!. I hope he hears it because I’m sick to the back teeth with him & his ilk dictating to the rest of us what we are meant to think & say & do. I will probably hold opinions that you don’t agree with, thats fine thats part of being a libertarian, free thinking human. I don’t follow the mainstream herd. I look forward to your comments.
