    Gina Miller's cases are about limiting the power of the executive and providing proper parliamentary oversight.
    So putting aside democracy everything is okay.

    So glad it didn't take long for the truth to come out.

    You would clearly prefer a dictatorship which works fine until you know it doesn't.

    Referendum was advisory, not legally binding.

    Leavers won by fraud (and Russian money)

    Irrelevant. It was politically binding.

    A little more problematic, if provably true.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Irrelevant. Meaningless term.

    Yes, it's just a promise. Promises can, indeed, be meaningless. Trust isn't worth much. Lying erodes trust, but we should all be more cynical.

    "Yes, Old Greg, I promise that I'm your real mother".

    Etc.

    Not at all. Politically, they'd have found it very difficult not to proceed. Ergo - politically binding. Politicians aren't good at doing difficult nowadays.

    Lots of things are very difficult. That doesn't make them 'binding'.

    You still haven't got British parliamentary democracy, have you? Is it willful ignorance on your part, or must we fear the worst?

    Whoosh.
    I know you're a low level permie, but seriously you're so thick, I find it amazing that you actually have work.
    Post Brexit, you may have to compete with all the clever contractors who worked in Europe and are now constrained to this small island.

    Now I know it's futile, but go and research what a parliamentary democracy actually is.
    Hard Brexit now!
