Because of PM Cameron’s Pledge, The EU Ref. Result Was Legally Binding
As stated in a previous blog, when he was PM, David Cameron pledged on air and in Parliament that the decision of the EU Referendum would be final. He also clearly pledged that there would be no second referendum. All this is recorded in Hansard.
The Prime Minister was absolutely clear.
In a speech at the Chatham House Royal Institute of International Affairs in November 2015, he stated: ‘When the British people speak, their voice will be respected — not ignored.
‘If we vote to leave, then we will leave. There will not be another renegotiation and another referendum.’
There was no ambiguity. Such a clear pledge is legally binding. There is abundant evidence that voters were told repeatedly that we would be leaving the single market and the customs unions.
The Remainers have had their say and had a good run for their money, but it is time they be silent now and accept the decision of the majority.
Mrs. May’s attempt to keep us half in the single market to mollify her Cabinet is a betrayal of Brexit. No compromise is possible that will satisfy Remainers, so the Remainers in the government must resign, and a Brexit government must take over. This is the only solution or the conflict will never end.
