If you follow Tim Farron’s argument through logically, then had the overall decision gone the other way, would he be saying every single piece of new EU legislation would have to be negotiated, put before the House of Commons, and voted on? I don’t think so.
The People’s Charter Rally, Saturday 21st January, 11am – 2pm, George V Statue, opposite the Houses of Parliament.

About the People’s Charter Foundation
The People’s Charter Foundation was established to promote democracy and freedom for all Britons, regardless of their race, gender, sexuality or religion. Luke Nash-Jones, founder of this new Chartist movement calling for democracy states, “Our aim is simply to remind that the MPs that they ought to represent the people who elect them. While we all hope Theresa May will take us out the EU, we can’t help wonder why she didn’t immediately invoke Article 50. There’s a pattern occurring of delay, press leak, then reassurance. Philip Hammond has implied that Brexit won’t occur by March 2017 – that month is critical, because from then onwards, changes to EU law will mean that Britain will require approval of 55% of EU states to invoke Article 50.”
David Baker, Branch Chairman of Surrey Chartists, expressed what motivates the movement: “There are a number of ongoing attempts to use our courts to thwart the will of the people. There’s even talk of an appeal to the European Court of Justice. The people have spoken – the matter was opened to us to decide upon and we voted.” The BBC reveals how bad the Brexit court ruling is – the European court end up deciding on the matter!
Please join us for the protest #ThePeopleHaveSpoken on the Saturday, 21st January.
