Vote Scotland is a secure voting platform to allow everyone on the Scottish Electoral Roll to register their preference on a wide range of issues. It is one person one vote and every vote counts.
After voting on the issue of the UKs withdrawal from the EU in what has been described as the single biggest popular vote in British history the British people find themselves in the dark over the future of Brexit. Whilst the vote did not produce an overwhelming clear majority it did produce a majority for the UK leaving the EU, it did however not decide what form that withdrawal should take. This has been the basis for continuing discussion between those who wish to see what has been described as a hard exit and those who wish to see a soft exit. The other half of the argument is whether MPs should debate article 50 before it is invoked.
The Prime Minister has indicated she will invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty in the Spring of 2017 as she believes a debate is not necessary. The British people have spoken at the ballot box and it’s the job of MPs to represent the wish of their electorate. There is no need for delay.
Some constitutional experts however will argue that in accordance with procedure and important question son foreign affairs should be brought before our sovereign parliament.
A clear conflict has arisen, a choice between the result of a democratic referendum in which the British people voted and made their decision or allowing our sovereign parliament the final say on what form the UKs withdrawal from the EU should take.
Parliament is Sovereign and must be given the opportunity to vote on this important issue.
The People have spoken. There is no need for delay. Article 50 must be invoked ASAP.
