    Yes, because the way to win elections is to piss off 52% of the electorate.
    That's exactly how you win elections.

    a shower thought,

    you know for a country that has always failed horribly at drawing everyone else's borders for them, I think it's really brave to pick up the big red crayon of democracy and have a crack at their own...

    My wording was deliberate. Not all of the 'electorate' vote.

    It's probably where the majority of the populace refer to their mid day meal as 'dinner'.

    Where government spending per head drops below the median.

    If Stamer and McDonnell stopped talking about second refs as viable options then he might be further in the game.
    Though I suspect that is only one issue with him.

    You're unwittingly correct, in that any government with a a shred of moral foundation wouldn't ask permission to not lead the nation over a cliff.

    Tony Blair didn't ask permission over Iraq. Is that the kind of 'moral foundation' you are talking about?

    The tories flat out defied the will of parliament to avoid military action in Syria. Are they your template?

    BTW, I view it as a positive development that you're not even trying to deny that a hard brexit constitutes "leading the nation over a cliff" anymore, instead merely resorting to low-tier whataboutism instead

    Im fairly sure Parliament was opposed to military action in Syria as a whole, not that I agree with not acting specifically in Syria and against a man who REALLY does have chemical weapons so it just goes to show the reality of what Parliament achieves sometimes i.e the wrong decision. I don't hold Parliament up to some holier than thou light when it causes as much damage as anything else or is as corrupt such as shown by the expenses scandal. Truth be told I am highly suspicious of Parliament and its dealings when it refers to supposed Governance of the country.

    Let me dissuade you of the notion that I think that a Hard Brexit constitutes in any way a cliff edge, cliff edge is just another word for wmd's from those about to lose their war.

    There are positives as well as negatives to a Hard Brexit. No backstop, no freedom of movement, free trade to wet the appetite for the positives. Already we are seeing house prices crashing and no we will not run out of food, its the boy who cries wolf who suggests such a thing. Another positive is removing neo-liberal influence from British politics, cutting out the Blairite Reeeeemoaners.
