Isn’t it too late to do anything about Britain leaving the EU?

A:

No. Britain voted to leave the EU but what are the terms? The Government are taking the country towards a hard Brexit, out of the single market and customs union as well as the EU itself and are refusing to give parliament a meaningful say on the terms of the final deal.  Even many people who voted to leave the EU disagree with this.  In a democracy the Government must be held accountable through Parliament.

Parliament could set conditions on the negotiations and could withdraw an Article 50 notification, or could decide to have a referendum on the terms of any Brexit deal, so that people could have a say on it - especially since even Leave campaigners are saying that they won't be able to fulfill many of the claims of the Leave campaign (£350 million a week for the NHS, a points based immigration system, trade deals in place before we leave the EU ...).
