MPs Who Voted For Referendum Now Trying to Block Result

27 MPs who voted in favour of holding an EU referendum now want to block the result. In June 2015, the following all voted to pass the European Union Referendum Act:

Owen Smith, Geraint Davies, Thangam Debbonaire, Peter Kyle, Neil Coyle, Daniel Zeichner, Tulip Siddiq, David Lammy, Catherine West, Helen Hayes, Kerry McCarthy, Ben Bradshaw, Jim Dowd, Mike Gapes, Rupa Huq, Ian Murray, Karen Buck, Jeff Smith, Ann Coffey, Vicky Foxcroft, Louise Ellman, Stephen Timms, Tom Brake, Tim Farron, Mark Williams, Alistair Carmichael and Caroline Lucas [Source: Hansard]

They wanted an In/Out EU referendum, it didn’t go their way and they are now voting to block Article 50. They only wanted to abide by the referendum result if they won…

UPDATE: Need a heart of stone not to laugh at David Lammy, who over the course of a few days in June 2015 voted both for an EU referendum and to nominate Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader. Life comes at you fast.

Quote of the Day

John Bercow finally makes his view on Brexit known.

“Brexit is the biggest mistake of this country after the war. I respect PM Johnson but Brexit doesn’t help us. It’s better to be part of the [EU] power bloc.”

What a surprise…
