Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Seems to me that once you get past the point of referendums being a bad idea in the first place (California has this problem with its state constitution), the point of representative government is that the elected government is supposed to work out the details of how to run things. It is not, formally, "May's agreement," it is "the majority party's agreement." Even if 2/3 of the majority party don't like it.

Perhaps someone has invented a system that would work better in delivering a magical solution to Brexit. Or perhaps the problem is that there is no magical solution to be had, regardless of whether it is delivered by the majority party, the opposition party, a bipartisan group, a public-school oligarchy, a dictator, or a madman.
