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.

Personally, I agree with the Observer. May was not elected by the UK electorate so for me it’s time for an election.
