With the current impasse in our Mother of Parliaments, I am at a loss to be able to understand how this matter can be resolved for the satisfaction of the electorate.

The majority 52 per cent to 48 per cent to leave was the decision of those UK residents who exercised their democratic right through the ballot box, simple or is it?

There are too many variables that our representatives find themselves having to recognise.

While the UK as a whole voted to leave with England & Wales voting to leave, Scotland & Northern Island voted to remain.

The regions voted 9 to 3 to leave, 270 voting areas decision was to leave while 129 voted to remain. Now to the crux of the problem, 480 MP's voted to remain while 159 voted to leave with 11 undecided.

So I would like to be told how this divisive issue is to be resolved.

The question on the ballot paper was leave the EU or Remain, it was never intended that we would be left in this state of uncertainty.

The MP's are supposedly our representatives.

The General Election may be shortly upon us, any election result cannot be guaranteed for any candidate.

After ten years of austerity we all deserve better than the dilemma that we face, damned if we leave damned if we remain.
