It's utterly irrelevant. If someone had said "I support leave but didn't vote in the referendum because it was advisory and I expected remain to win" nobody would be claiming they didn't have a right to express an opinion on brexit and it wouldn't affect their ability to vote in another referendum if we have one.

 

Leavers arguing about whether mel voted in the referendum is just used to distract from the immediate topic of conversation. In this case that's Bercow doing his job of ensuring the government are accountable to parliament and leavers being upset about that.

the highest form of hypocrisy, they are happy to subvert democracy if it gets their obsession fullfilled but at the same time tarring everything else that people may do in opposition as subverting democracy...hmmmmm

He’s a Tory, why do you think most Tories hate him?

The first bit of an article in 2009...

 

"Or put it another way, why is the earth round? It's just the way things are. I guess I've spoken to at least thirty Tory MPs this week. They are all united in one thing. It must be anybody but Bercow. I know of only one Tory MP who would support him at the moment, yet Labour MPs are positively falling over themselves to back him. Wonder why that would be.. . . . "

How does an elected parliamentary chamber “subvert democracy “ ?

 

What you mean is that they won’t go along with this extremist madness. And well done to them.

Yea but never miss a chance to blame the remoaners though.  Even if hard-Brexit MP's voted against leaving in March.

 

They were being patriotic you see, even if they voted the same way as a remoaner, who is of course a traitor.
