#FBPE With the frankly bizarre news today that Northern Ireland is the latest sacrificial lamb to #Brexit, let's talk seriously about Open-Ended Mandates, Article 50 Validity and resetting the ratchet

Brexit has become a farce which no-one voted for. And *that* BREAKS Article 50
For context on Northern Ireland, read Peter Foster's thread. The unmasking helps because the most ardent Brexiter can't claim Northern Ireland was part of the Brexit mandate

Why? They famously forgot about NI in 2016. We did NOT vote to split the UK

Now let's talk "Consent of the Governed". In Summary and in thread:

Monarchs had divine power, which was limited by consent

Brexiters cannot behave like divine monarchs, stretching definitions of consent infinitely or saying consent was given by omission
Northern Ireland isn't the only consent problem with Brexit, it's just the most obvious.

"No Deal" meets NO reasonable test of the mandate of 2016, as you can see in this thread. In which case No Deal is NOT Brexit and is NOT compliant with Article 50.

But people don't remember 2016. They claim to have voted to leave the single market or even claim to have signed up for no deal.

Cummings quotes are useful as cast-iron public documents written by a source who cant be argued to be a secret Remainer.

What can we Prove in Law?
✅2016 Mandate doesn't cover No Deal
✅No Deal breaks 2016 Consent
✅Article 50 isn't honoured with No Deal


A50 is withdrawn
Or we vote on "should we leave Northern Ireland to enable Brexit"?
Or ratchet Brexit back to 2016 definitions
