  1. Is It a coincidence that a vast majority of the English MPs are from areas destroyed by mass immigration , we certainly know where there loyalty lies.

  2. I guess those voting against are of the opinion their constituency voted to remain.
    The one absentee was Corbyn . His constituents in Islington must have voted remain.
    Still as it was a national vote they are going against the will of the people, and at least a half of these opposed are not ENGLISH constituencies. Thus showing the weakness of the union.
    I am of the opinion a constitutional crisis awaits somewhere down the line . In my opinion the loathian question of the scots tail wagging the Engish dog is about to finish . That must be a good thing.

  3. This should never have needed a vote as the most important vote on this action was the national referendum which should have been enough to trigger article 50. The ridiculous decision of the Supreme Court Justices that it should have to go through Parliament again, and essentially get the approval of only a majority of MP’s, was a misuse of our unwritten constitution. The fact seems to be that the true nature of Democracy has been forgotten by many within the political elite. The unwillingness to accept the democratic decision of the majority in the referendum shows just how many people, especially on the political left, have lost sight of true democratic principles. The left have started using their storm-troupers now in the U.S. as they have failed democratically. This long list of MP’s who believe themselves to be doing the right thing shows just how brainwashed against true democracy they have now become.
