Revoke Article 50 and let’s have an election
IN reply to John Lewis, many of us feel sick that our parliamentary democracy has been overturned by allowing a Prime Minister who lost a general election to stay in power by means of a £1.5bn bribe to the DUP when Northern Ireland voted to remain in the EU.
Whatever Cameron said, prominent Leavers denied that leaving the EU would mean leaving the customs union and the single market. The referendum question made no reference to either the single market or the customs union. Whether the British people wish to leave the single market and the customs union remains to be determined.
David Davis has just admitted to parliament that he has failed to carry out any assessment of the Brexit impact on any sector of the economy. Article 50 should not have been triggered without any plan in place and should now be revoked while we have a general election.
Labour would be in power now if they had opposed this Brexit breakdown of parliamentary government. Margaret Phelps Penarth
