There have been speeches presented in Parliament recently based around whether MPs should vote for an Act of Parliament to trigger the Article 50 process with the EU – and so start the process of leaving it. That Parliament should have this decision is a democratic and legal no-brainer, only opposed by complete idiots who have been suckered in by fascist newspapers. I’m sorry if that sounds harsh, but it’s as fair an assessment as I can muster.
So, what are the for/against arguments?
Based on some of the speeches and comments I’ve read so far, the arguments basically boil down to the following:
|Arguments for MPs to vote against an Act of Parliament to invoke Article 50||Arguments for MPs to vote for an Act of Parliament to invoke Article 50|
Pretty conclusive in favour of leaving hard and fast, I suppose.
