Brexit: Supreme Court says Parliament must give Article 50 go-ahead

Hey, Fuck You Guys!

From the BBC:
Parliament must vote on whether the government can start the Brexit process, the Supreme Court has ruled. 
The judgement means Theresa May cannot begin talks with the EU until MPs and peers give their backing - although this is expected to happen in time for the government's 31 March deadline. 
But the court ruled the Scottish Parliament and Welsh and Northern Ireland assemblies did not need a say. Brexit Secretary David Davis promised a parliamentary bill "within days". 
During the Supreme Court hearing, campaigners argued that denying the UK Parliament a vote was undemocratic and a breach of long-standing constitutional principles. 
So, the Supreme Court has declared it undemocratic that the Parliament should merely obey the Will of the People as expressed in a binding referendum?

I don't think that word, "undemocratic", means what they think it means.
