McGrath of Harlow Brexit #2 (2815* d) RE: Brexit #2 05 Dec 18


The stupid thing has been that so many people who favoured Remain have accepted, and even echoed the stuff about how a second referendum would somehow be undemocratic. There is nothing undemocratic about giving people an opportunity to change their minds, or to confirm their wishes.

There is no way in which either Ireland or Denmark are less democratic countries than the U K - in fact there are good grounds for arguing that their political systems are considerably more democratic than those of the UK. To suggest that in giving their electorate a second chance in similar circumstances is deeply unjust, and absurd edgy so.

In addition a fresh vote would reflect the fact that more than two years after that first vote the additional number of people who have become entitled to vote is far higher than the narrow majority that separated the two sides in 2016 - people who have not had any chance to vote on this issue, which will affect their lives and opportunities profoundly.
