@AndrewMarr9 @MarrShow - you will recall about a year ago mentioning a letter I wrote to the PM asking her to disclose the advice she had received that Article 50 was unilaterally revocable. She refused to do so and paid 5 QCs to try and stop the ECJ ruling on the point. Why?
Please ask her why she would prefer to risk people's lives, stockpile food, send 1000 police to Northern Ireland, spend millions on fridges rather than revoke Article 50? Please ask her how badly no deal compares with remaining in the EU?
Please ask her whether she thinks if the referendum had been between a no deal scenario and remaining, 'no deal' would have won? If she is sure it would be no deal please ask her why?
If she does not know or cannot say, please ask her why then she would deprive both Parliament and 'the people' of a vote on the issue? Please ask her whether democracy means that Parliament must now do as she says? If she answers because that it is 'the will of the people'...
please ask her why she thinks she alone can better discern the will of the people than the people's representatives in Parliament? Please explain to her that in this country, Parliament represents the people not the executive and certainly not the Prime Minister. Please persist
