Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Some of the more excitable are pointing out that the whole process was designed to con the voters and Parliament.

A50 legislation - as passed by Parliament - explicitly labelled advisory, not binding
Cameron - "binding referendum, your wishes will be respected"
Cameron, Osborne, and Corbyn - the most unpopular politicians in the country - lead Remain
Ref - "the will of the people"

And then we discover that Cameron was a closet Eurosceptic all along.

It is, to put it bluntly, an utter crock of shit.

Interestingly the FB remain groups are currently dominated by LDs shrieking about how they're the only true Remain party - an easy claim to make with a handful of MPs - and no one should ever vote for that nasty Corbyn man ever again.

They're oddly quiet about the Tory side.

Some of them become very abusive when challenged about this.

I honestly can't decide if the LDs are actually imbeciles, or if the party is a stage-managed viper's nest of crypto-Tories being manipulated by Tory HQ.
