What is dishonest is to legislate for advisory ref w/out safeguards & assessment a mandate would require
Then, though you're a barrister, to contradict what the law says & confirms in R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union
It was Govt's duty to assess the result together with relevant factors & Parliament's duty to debate Govt's policy, not to rubber stamp it.
Leave got more votes. So it won. So we're out. This without even having determined what *out* meant. .
Nothing about the referendum is what it seems. The vote wasn't the democratic *will of the people* despite MPs still claiming it is. The ref wasn't really about leaving the EU -
