Re­voke Ar­ti­cle 50 and let’s have an elec­tion

Western Mail - - WM2 -

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
