MPs should have a free vote on Brexit
Regarding the People's Vote on Brexit, I would like to make the following three points on my position:-
1) We now know the referendum was a false move by Cameron, to mollify his backbenchers – so it should have been declared invalid.
2) The result was almost half-and-half.
In other countries it has to be 60 or 65 per cent to be valid.
3) Isn’t it time to allow our MPs to have a free vote?
They could combine the concerns of their constituents, knowledge of the consequences of leaving, and listen to their consciences.
I’d rather be governed by them than by tabloid editors.
