Strangely enough, The House uses the plural form "referendums", rather than the Latin form. To mirror the Assemblies in the other three parts of the UK, and has done for about 150 years ! Just saying like.Only inasfar as it is not altered by later legislation. Still a separate question to the point I was addressing about referenda.
I know. It's my Latin O-level casting a shadow.Strangely enough, The House uses the plural form "referendums", rather than the Latin form. To mirror the Assemblies in the other three parts of the UK, and has done for about 150 years ! Just saying like.
You have.I want to be sure I'm not having a senior moment here and to remove any doubt in my mind.
MPs voted for Article 50, to leave the EU. It had no addendum like hard, soft, deal, no deal etc. The default as per A50 is to leave.
MPs have successfully managed to block any and every attempt at a deal, therefore we're at the default A50 state of leaving in 10 days time without one. Is that correct or have I missed something?
I have one of those - you need to do something about it.I know. It's my Latin O-level casting a shadow.
It often seems as if the debate on pluralising ‘referendum’ can be as divisive as the issues being voted upon. So who’s right?www.dailyedge.ie
But the Acts which followed the referendum made the result binding.UK referenda are non-binding. Them's the rules (unless the legislation says otherwise, viz the AV referendum). I struggle to understand why you don't know that fact.
You don't say?
How did MPs pass the Benn Act?
The route to passing this legislation involved a three-step process.
- MPs passed a Standing Order No. 24 motion (an emergency debate motion) on 3 September to take control of the order paper the following day. It included provisions which allowed the bill to go through all Commons stages on 4 September.
- Peers voted to timetable the passage of the bill in the House of Lords so that they could pass it on 5 and 6 September.
- The bill received Royal Assent on 9 September.
