Corbyn to order Labour MPs to vote for article 50 trigger

Leader signals his MPs will be instructed to vote to start EU divorce after expected loss of government’s supreme court challenge

MPs should be able to make their own principled decision on one of most important issues in UK recent history link

    . CarolineLucas How are you going to vote on triggering article 50? guardian

  • Ben G Smith (benjo_1997)

    CarolineLucas guardian MPs should respect the democratic voice of the people, even if they don't like the outcome. Just as I didn't

  • James (J3Lyon)

    benjo_1997 CarolineLucas guardian MPs should vote the way their constituency voted, that's only democratic way to do it.

  • Ben G Smith (benjo_1997)

    J3Lyon CarolineLucas no they shouldn't Referenda go above constituency politics The nation decided National representatives should respect

  • James (J3Lyon)

    benjo_1997 CarolineLucas MPs represent their constituency in the commons, not the nation.

  • Ben G Smith (benjo_1997)

    J3Lyon CarolineLucas if that was the case we wouldn't have had the referendum and it would've solely been a vote in parliament

  • James (J3Lyon)

    benjo_1997 CarolineLucas it was, MPs voted for a referendum. MPs should respect and REFLECT their constituency's view on future votes.

  • Ben G Smith (benjo_1997)

    J3Lyon CarolineLucas if that was the case, given the chance the SNP would've taken us Scots out the union in your way of doing things

  • James (J3Lyon)

    benjo_1997 CarolineLucas What Scotland does is Scotland's business. To do it your way referendums would need to be legally binding first.

  • CarolineLucas Defiaye Lab MPs were allowed to "vote their conscience" for #Trident. Why not #Brexit? Especially after Tories lose appeal.

  • Fenburg (FennaLouise)

    AntiAusterityUK CarolineLucas Defiaye There is no 3 line whip. Read the wording of the article. It's all guess work dressed up as facts

  • CarolineLucas Shame on jeremycorbyn for imposing 3line whip to force through Murdoch n Media billionaires Brexit coup. We demand 2nd vote

  • Dewi Asianab (UnrelentingEgo)

    spideyjonesy CarolineLucas JamesMelville Completely understand if MPs want to vote leave, but shouldn't be asked to vote with the Tories.

I suggest Labour MPs show the same loyalty to the party whip as Corbyn did for all those years link

  • Sean Held (seanheld)

    Aiden5350 eddiemarsan Not 400 times. In the end he just opposed them for the sake of opposing. He can't now demand loyalty. All the best

  • Adrian Taylor (adream608)

    eddiemarsan I can't verify the source but looks like the correct ballpark link

  • eddiemarsan we all know that it's not going to happen, right? Politicians will find a way to justify all this and to pretend to be right..

  • Ben McConaghy (McConaghyBen)

    eddiemarsan guardian Did you object to him going against the whip at the time? More importantly do you know on what issues? Probably not.

Utterly wrong. MPs whose constituents voted overwhelmingly to remain have a duty to stand up for them. link

  • EmmaKennedy if that was the action of ALL MPs than Parliament would support Art50 52% is larger than 48%

  • Emma Kennedy (EmmaKennedy)

    IanColey2112 Exactly. MPs for constituents who voted Leave should absolutely vote for it to be triggered. Same for Remain.

    EmmaKennedy I give in (I know you already gave in a while ago). I voted for Remain. Who's representing me?

  • Openly David (theboywhoslept)

    EmmaKennedy but Article 50 is being invoked whether we like it or not. Attempting to obstruct that makes a hard Brexit more likely.

  • Fiona Sothcott (Zwoddergirl)

    EmmaKennedy This is an absolute betrayal of the vast majority of Labour voters who wish to remain in the EU. What the hell is he thinking?

  • David James (DavidJames2100)
