British MPs voted last night by a large majority to back Theresa May’s plan to trigger Brexit by the end of March 2017 last night.
The result saw 461 MPs side with the people of the UK, who voted in a referendum in June to leave Europe.
However, 89 backbenchers including just one Tory and 23 Labour MPs opposed Brexit in a show of contempt of the EU referendum result.
Hats off to the sensible UK MPs, who have shown by their vote that the overwhelming majority understand that they have a special responsibility as the elected representatives of the UK people to actually represent the will of their voters whatever their personal views might be.
The vote will throw the spotlight back on the bizzarre Brexit appeal case now at the Supreme Court. The High Court ruled that parliament had to be given another vote on Brexit in a judicial coup d etat since parliament had already voted to allow Brexit.
