Andrew Murrison, Tory MP, Branded ‘Stupid’ Or ‘Liar’ For Astounding Article 50 Tweet

The issue with Murrison’s original tweet is two-fold.

Firstly, the High Court ruling last week to force Theresa May to seek parliamentary approval before triggering Article 50 was not an attempt to change the outcome of the result.

As Gina Miller, the woman who brought the case, told Nigel Farage on Sunday: “We have a representative democracy, which means they have to go in there and debate, that’s what Parliament’s for.

“That’s what you argued for the whole way through, Parliamentary sovereignty.”

Farage replied: “This not about whether Parliament is sovereign, it’s about whether the British people are sovereign. That’s the real argument.”
