Is it time to remind MP's that they are public servants and NOT masters?

I abhor the rhetoric that we didn't know what we where voting for.
The question was remain or leave - I voted to leave, plain and simple.

We should have left, with two two year period delay for business to prepare. Then start negotiating a deal from that position.

I reminded mine that his duty was to represent his own constituents, not those in Ebbw Vale or Sunderland, and he didn't reply......

That is for the politicians to mitigate - to create an environment of growth and attract investment by setting taxation and regulation to account for the political decision of the electorate.

That wasn't what I asked - I asked how many jobs you were prepared to lose while our incompetent politicians try and figure out how to get us to this mythical utopia?

This is "Bird Box Brexit".
Both sides are stumbling and fumbling around in the dark with no idea of what's ahead, where they are headed or which brick wall they are about to walk straight into.

There shouldn't be a second referendum and thats final.

I'd give the politicians three choices

1. Get on with fully exiting the EU
2. Any politician conspiring against the peoples vote, would be sacked.
3. The UK to relinquish full power to Brussels, making all this countries politicians redundant and open up parliament as a museum.

Bet there are many that went out and voted conservative knowing full well that referendum deciding the future of our membership of the EU,it was all part of there manifesto.

Bet a lot of those that voted conservative are now Kicking themselves.

The OP seems oblivious to common sense Smile
How many jobs will we gain after leaving?

In a democratic vote we voted to leave.

Keep it simple - over 60% of our trade is done outside of the current EEC deal (yes it is a deal!)

There is no reason why a new deal cannot be temporarily put in place, such as leaving on 29th March, continuing on the present EEC customs basis for 3 months while we negotiate a new deal based on perhaps half world trade terms fixed for 12 months and then up for review.

The EEC already has similar deals both with other none EEC European countries and much of the rest of the world.

I am satisfied when the majority voted leave they were aware there would be some short term winners and losers and that within 2-3 years we would be financial better off.

The world did not end when petrol went over 1 a litre.
