Proroguing Parliament – you’re all forgetting one vital thing!
As we stand today, we are still in the European Union and therefore under EU law.
We were under EU law in 2016 when the Referendum took place.
Accordingly, in March 2007, the Venice Commission adopted the ‘Code of good practice for referendums’, which is the counterpart of the ‘Code of good practice in electoral matters’.
In February, 2002 the U.K. as member agreed the Statue “European Commission for Democracy through Law (VENICE COMMISSION) RESOLUTION RES (2002) 3 adopting the revised STATUTE OF THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION FOR DEMOCRACY THROUGH LAW.
It clearly states under ‘Opinion of Parliament’
‘Parliament’s opinion is all the more necessary when the referendum is requested by the executive. In such cases, it is important to ascertain whether the call to the people is designed to bypass Parliament.’
Majority of Parliament voted to give a Referendum.
Both major parties swore to uphold the result in their manifestos.
Majority of Parliament voted to invoke Article 50
It is therefore obvious that this was a call to the people and designed to bypass Parliament.
‘the authorities must respect the people’s decision.’
‘it is up to Parliament to implement the people’s decision’
‘They must not abuse their position’
Universal law and 3 pillars will be respected, i.e. Human Rights.
“The Universal Declaration of Human Rights “Article 21 (3) The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government”.
EVEN UNDER EU LAW, PARLIAMENT MUST RRSPECT AND DELIVER THE EU REF RESULT.
LEAVE EU, ENTIRELY. NO MORE ILLEGAL ACTS. NO MORE HINDERING OR THWARTING.
OTHERWISE THE ELECTORATE MUST TAKE A STAND.
