Well, the thing we read about for the last few weeks turned out to be true. Theresa May is stepping down, and allowing someone else to take the position of Prime Minister.



The next question is who will take that position, and what will be their stance on Brexit. My stance is still the same. A vote of 52% to 48% is flipping a coin to make your decision. You cannot run a government on coin tosses. Decisions need to be on a 2/3 majority vote. If you cannot reach a 2/3 majority vote, then don't continue. If you don't get a 2/3 majority vote, then you need to step back, and analyse WHY you didn't get that 2/3 majority, and then continue on that basis, until you can reach a 2/3 majority vote.

Lindale, what you have suggested does not conform to Westminster Logic.

The way forward is to plough ahead with Brexit regardless of the consequences, regardless of what experts or studies suggest is the right course of action, regardless of how tight the referendum vote was, regardless of whether the referendum was legally binding or not, regardless of whether the referendum was truly representative of the wishes of the people owing to the turnout, and regardless of whether or not any of the people who originally voted in favour of Brexit have now changed their minds, or didn't even mean it really the first time.

The only thing we can do is plough ahead. It is literally impossible to do anything else. 

Oh, goodbye Theresa. 'Bout time, really, though I'm not looking forward to seeing who might step up to replace her...

Indeed a 2/3 majority vote is not Westminster Logic. Westminster Logic is a coin toss is good enough to decide what happens with the nation. That is what caused this problem in the first place.


A 2/3 majority vote is a much better way to run a government. Had a 2/3 majority vote law existed, this mess would never have happened.
