Stu BS: Post Brexit life in the UK (6498* d) RE: BS: Post Brexit life in the UK 14 Nov 17

It's just so depressing that the hard Brexiteers are dominating the debate, for all the whining about democracy and "taking back control" when the push comes to shove the Brexiteers are looking after their vested interests and trying to impose their own ideology. So when remainers say "fair enough, we're leaving" (and most have, however unhappy we are about it) and want to get involved in the manner of our departure and the implications for us all we are totally left out of the debate unless we agree with a few hardened tory eurosceptics.

This is utterly wrong, and leads to massive resentment. If the hard Brexiteers won't even entertain the idea that they might have to compromise some of THEIR long-held convictions then what choice does anyone in opposition have but to either a) alter the terms and process to allow more debate and get some influence on the negotiation or b) Say "fuck it" as no-one is listening or interested in meaningful dialogue and work to scupper the Brexit completely.

Simply sating that because people voted remain they can no longer have a say in the democratic process including Brexit is not only wrong, it's divisive, hypocritical and has to be called out.
