A tale of the tape regarding the UK's vote to leave the European Union and EU plans for re-arming Germany and a German/French-run European army (Despite Europe 40% reliant on Russian Gas and Energy). Plus, 10,000 UK police and troops on standby if Brexit rejected.
How they voted so far in MP's 'taking back control' from the government. Ergo, how NOT to run a democracy.

MP's decided let's take back control again. Result? four more Brexit alternative options voted down again.
C - Ken Clarke’s for a customs union.
Majority against: 3
D - Nick Boles’ for common market 2.0
Majority against: 21
E - Peter Kyle’s for a confirmatory public vote.
Majority against: 12
G - Joanna Cherry’s for revoking article 50 in the face of no-deal Brexit.
Majority against: 101
Undaunted and still in complete denial, they wanted to demand an indefinite extension while they 'sort it out'. A tied result was returned on an amendment which sought to pave the way for the third round of votes on Brexit alternatives, with MPs voting 310 to 310. A majority of ONE.
This was hailed by MP's as 'democracy speaking'.
Question: if just a single vote is a democratic majority, then, why is near 2 million NOT a majority? because they voted to leave?
