Scarlet - explain to us how the WA accepted would be leaving the EU but Labour should become a Remain Party and support it?

We have several citizens assemblies Westminster, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Stormont. We haven't used any others since William III came to the throne. Perhaps you are harking back to Runnymede or the Saxon Moots?

Citizens Assembly? The MPs could not agree in any way as to whether we should Leave the EU or Remain so they referred it back to the citizens who voted to Leave. The MPs can't understand that and have discussed it with myriad wily wheezes for over two years. They can't agrre so Stewart thinks we need to refer back to the citizens again but not the citizen voters but just 500 of us selected apparently at random from those of jury service age. Not clear what they will be required to decide upon but perhaps whether we should have another referendum - which we could follow by more pointless discussion and then empanel a jury of what, 100? 1000? to delay things into the 2030's.

Interim we could have a general election or two, or three and appoint 200 more Life peers. Keeps hoi polloi convinced that we have a democracy.

Keith, that all depends on what one thinks of as Brexit. I see Stewart with Gauke, Rudd, Soubry, Sandbach, Hammond, Lidington etc as die-hard Remainers however they try to cloak it. In fact it is astonishing that he has not a clear first place since there are so many Remainer Tory MPs.

If those were the last 2 and Boris lost there would be no Conservative Party left to walk away from. For many of us Stewart as leader would be a joke too far.

Really. Just a few weeks ago we were told these were all entryist Ukippers.

"A second referendum is democracy". Excellent point so let us have it then a third, fourth, fifth, sixth and so on. One can't have too much of that sort of democracy. Just don't promise the electorate ever to take notice of how they voted. After all they would never really know what they were voting for.

Not Karen Bradley at all and collapse the 3 departments for the devolved nations into one.

75% of the MPs would consider anything at all that the EU proposes to be not only reasonable but positively excellent.

I missed most of the Channel 4 debate, tuning in close to the end but I saw each of the contenders give their final summing up. Only Gove and Stewart got loud applause but Sajid Javid did not excite a single clapper. So, he may be a very nice and genuine man but he is not going to excite the nation or even the grassroots.
