Wednesday, 9 October 2019 - Brussels Revised edition

Preparation of the European Council meeting of 17 and 18 October 2019 (debate)

  Dinesh Dhamija (Renew). – Mr President, I just want to make clear that, in the UK, we live in a parliamentary democracy, and that means that when a referendum result comes out, it is then advised to the parliamentarians, the MPs in parliament, who then try and administer that result. Fortunately or unfortunately, there is no Brexit majority in the UK Parliament. I’m a Lib Dem. As far as the Lib Dem manifesto goes, we have never ever said that we will be putting the Brexit result and we will want to do it. We were just told that we’d put it in our manifesto. It’s not true.

The other thing is I would very much like Boris Johnson to carry on in government with a majority of -43, and whatever we want to do, it’s like a fish hanging on a line, and we will do what we can until 2022 to not have a Brexit.
