Comment Re:Well, once the panels are installed (Score 1) 414

When the NatGas Frackers came through my area, they employed a lot of people for a few years. Then the wells were built, and they moved to another state.

Are you sure about that? Where are you located? In most places, the frackers ceased operations because the price of oil fell through the floor and it stopped being economical to drill new wells.

The company has also confirmed that the redemption process permanently adds the game to the appropriate third-party service. For example, if users redeems a promotional game key through to Steam, that game will be useable on any other device, just like normal Steam games.

Are you saying that public opinion hasn't shifted, or that the legislative body should ignore it if it has? Parliament shouldn't be so reactionary that the course of the country is changing wildly on a weekly basis, but it also shouldn't be eternally bound to the outcome of a public opinion poll (which is what the referendum was) that was taken on one day in June 2016.

In the interest of democracy it would be wrong for parliament to reverse a vote on the exact same question as was put to parliament

It's been months since the referendum. There's plenty of room to argue that the will of the people has changed in that time, and that it would be in the interest of democracy to reverse the vote.
