It's quite amazing listening to remoaners go on and on about how BJ has no mandate to take the UK out of the EU without a deal. That nobody voted to leave without a deal. The latter of course requires the ability to know what each leave voter heard and read, to know what they did and didn't know, and how they weighed up the various issues. But of course remoaners seem to believe they possess these special mind reading powers. The very simple facts are that:
1. BEFORE the 2016 peoples vote pollies like Cameron, Hammond and Osborne stated on a number of occasions (both inside and outside of Parliament) that if people voted leave then the Government WOULD respect their wishes and that they WOULD trigger Article 50. They told potential leave voters that once Article 50 was triggered that the UK would be on a "one way street to the exit" at the end of two years and would leave with or WITHOUT a deal. They made it very clear that if the leave vote won then the UK WOULD leave the single market and the customs union. This is a matter of public record.
2. Parliament voted 494 to 122 to pass the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Act which allowed the PM to notify the EU of the UK's intention to leave under Article 50. Article 50 states that the maximum amount of time a country has to negotiate an exit is 2 years (unless the EU agrees to an extension). IF no agreement is struck during the two year negotiation period then the UK would leave WITHOUT a deal. In reality therefore the NO DEAL option is effectively the default option.
Now on the ballot paper did those who voted to leave select an option that stated that the UK would leave without a deal? No. Did they select an option that stated that they were in favour of the UK leaving the EU but only with a deal? No. Did over 17.4 million people vote for the UK to UNCONDITIONALLY leave the EU? Yes. So exactly how remoaners can claim nobody voted to leave without a deal is beyond me. As for BJ. He has a mandate from the people, and from Parliament, to take the UK out of the EU. He is trying to do this. And yet remaoners somehow think this is undemocratic...
