Two types of democracy

Multi-party parliamentary democracies cannot implement referendum results. If a party is unified on the issue for referendum, they can include it in their manifesto; if they are divided on the issue for referendum, they cannot implement it.

So the Brexit vote cannot be implemented through parliament. Implementation can only be completed by a second referendum; the question being, should we remain in the single market or not?
