Absolutely nobody has ever explained what it was that the British public voted for. What they do is describe their own personal brexit and then claim that this is what was voted for. To describe it as dishonest is merely remarking that water is wet (news to Donald I know) or that bears shit in woods.
There are many versions of brexit that do not threaten the integrity of the referendum result, the integrity of the UK nor that of the EU. However, to do so buggers up Theresa's personal brexit which involves leaving the European Court of Justice which she personally hates and despises.
And that's the problem. Everybody is wandering around talking about brexit as if it was an entirely accepted idea of what it entailed. There isn't.

Indeed, I wish somebody had compiled a compendium of soft-soap promises from the brexiteers of what brexit would look like leading up to the referendum, cos they drove a cart and horses through that lot the day after

Scots judges refer the question of whether the UK can unilaterally revoke Article 50 to the ECJ.
To the ECJ.
Carloway, one of three judges to consider the case on appeal after it was initially rejected in June as "academic and hypothetical", noted that the Commons would be required to vote on whether to ratify any Brexit deal before 29 March 2019, "a date which is looming up", and that a judgment from the ECJ would "have the effect of clarifying the options open to MPs in the lead-up to what is now an inevitable vote".
If it turns out that the UK Parliament can, by a vote, solemnly and meekly put an end to the whole train wreck...
It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue
