Autumn is here in full force! Several days of constant rain is forecast to add to the gloom I am feeling about all things Brexit. I suspect I am one the dwindling number of remain voters who think that the referendum result should be honoured. However, I don’t believe that a no deal Brexit is in Britains short or long term interest so whether that makes me a traitor or not is for other parts of the internet to judge. I also don’t believe that the current MPs are traitors and they have as much political legitimacy as the result of the referendum. Lord Sumption summed it rather well I thought – the referendum said we should leave – parliament should decide who we leave.
I cannot think of a better description of how a referendum fits into our system of democracy.
