The Second Vote

Another take on this second vote, in particular “parliament is at an impasse, so we need to throw the question back”.

Surely MPs are elected so as to avoid an impasse? To find a way through? It seems perfectly appropriate for the public to set a direction of travel, as we do in General Elections every five years, as we did in the European referendum. But isn’t the role of the MP to carry out those broad instructions? So if an MP calling for a second referendum, isn’t that an admission of failure, that “I can’t do my job”?

Author: Stroke Survivor UK

For many years I designed and developed IT systems for big banks. I had a stroke a couple of years ago, aged pre-50! I have returned to developing things from home, not quite at the levels I used to, but saves on the travel! My time is also filled with some voluntary work for the UK charities Age UK and the [UK] Stroke Association. Incidentally, I created this account with the alias "sca11y" but have since aligned it with the name of my blog.
