Obviously, that was when they thought they were going to get the vote they wanted; i.e. 'remain'.
Now they, i.e. M.P.'s, want a vote on leaving the E.E.C.
But some M.P.'s are so dim-witted, they don't even understand what they're voting about.
People like Ben Bradshaw, who came on Sky news and say that they cannot vote to destroy jobs and the economy.
Mr. Bradshaw, I know this might be a difficult concept for you to grasp with the limited intellect you self-evidently possess, but try and stay with me on this one.
You're voting to enable the government to trigger 'article 50' which gives notice to the E.E.C. that we're leaving.
You're not voting for anything else, whatsoever.
For anyone who doesn't understand that, we do however have some nice comfortable, although somewhat tight fitting, white jackets available.
