Brexiters across the nation are furious this afternoon after learning that the sovereignty of parliament could be used to prevent the country getting back the sovereignty it needs.
As Brexit minister David Davis announced that MPs would have a vote on the final deal to leave the EU, many who voted to leave the EU have insisted this just gives Parliament an opportunity to make a decision they don’t agree with.
Leave voter Simon Williams told us, “It is essential that our elected officials have the power to make decisions for the benefit of this country – but only when those decisions are ones that I personally think are the right ones.
“I think it’s disgusting that parliament is going to use its sovereign powers to vote in a way that I disagree with.
“I didn’t vote to leave the EU and bring back parliamentary sovereignty just so that parliament could go around being sovereign and doing things I don’t like. Bloody saboteurs, the lot of them.”
The news has been welcomed by the sort of people who are keen to see the UK cut ties with the EU altogether, and are actively promoting a ‘no deal’ scenario.
Leave campaigner Jeremy Happenby-Smythe told us, “As someone who thinks we should tell the EU to fuck right off, I think a parliamentary vote on the negotiated deal is a wonderful idea.
“As long as the decision in front of MPs is the choice between a truly awful deal, and an even worse one, then I’m confident they will make the right decision.”
