It seems that parliament can intervene and stop Brexit in the national interest.

If we work on the assumption that there is clear legal advice recommending that Brexit can be reversed by parliamentary decision, then the position of both Theresa May’s government and Jeremy Corbyn‘s opposition is shameful. Both are trying to to deceive the public for their own political ends.

The evidence that Brexit will be a disaster is overwhelming, as May’s government hurtles towards the hardest of Brexit’s.

Once more, we see that Theresa May is out of step with the emerging context, But the lady who sought power to lead will be forced to follow. Already the cabinet are getting more outspoken but the real test will be parliament’s teeth.

Ultimately, we need some brave Conservative and Labour MPs to stand up for their beliefs not follow like lambs to slaughter?
