The “getting back control mythology …
“It’s worth observing that the House of Commons gave up more power through that effectively binding referendum vote than it has ever sent to Brussels. The only thing MPs now have to do is to give effect, as best they can, to the referendum result; even if they hate Brexit and campaigned against it, they are now no more than popular delegates getting on merely with the detail of what the people demanded, albeit by a slim majority. No longer are MPs the representatives of the people on the old Edmund Burke model, voting with their brains and consciences as they fancied themselves to be. That, by the way, is a constitutional revolution as big as anything we’ve had for centuries.”
