McGrath of Harlow Brexit #2 (2815* d) RE: Brexit #2 21 Jan 19


Nigel Farage specifically said while waiting for the referendum result, at a time he was expecting it to be a victory for remain, that the struggle to overturn that would continue. For once he was saying something no fair minded person should disagree with.

After any election it is reasonable to expect the losers to work to overturn the result next time, and to press for it to be next time as soon as they think they have a chance of winning. GThere is nothing sacred about a referendum as opposed to any other election. It's just that rather than having individual constituencies, the whole country is treated as if it were one big constituency. Elections are fundamental to any form of elective democracy.

Seeking to avoid an election is not an expression of democratic principles, as is now being claimed by opponents of a fresh referendum, it is the opposite.
