The Brexit Referendum Does Not Bind the British Parliament

There has been talk that the Queen should order the British parliament to implement the will of the people of the Brexit referendum of two and a half years ago.

However, British referendums are totally unlike those in Australia. Ours are required by the Australian Constitution to implement any change to it. The British referendums are more like a plebiscite which, whilst indicating the will of the people, is non-binding on the parliament.
