Steve Shaw BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (2656* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 14 Apr 19


Do you honestly think, though, that a responsible approach to the brexit referendum was even remotely possible, given the dishonest motivation for calling it in the first place? There was certainly very little that was "responsible" about either campaign, and that was highly predictable. On June 23 2016 an ignorant electorate - ignorant through accepting tissues of lies from both sides, ignorant of the gravity of the choice they were confronted with, ignorant of the implications for the long-term future of the country, ignorant of the potential for the trashing of the Good Friday Agreement, ignorant through often dwelling on their own prejudices and self-interest instead of seeing the bigger picture - made the biggest decision facing the country for decades. A decision we should have expected our body of politicians to make in light of all the information they are paid to collect and understand that the rest of us can't be expected to get our heads around to anything like the same extent. 650 professional people with a host of advisers behind them. Yes we know what a pile of clowns there are embedded among that lot, but we can't do any better. So we did something far worse. By the way, had MPs had a free choice as to whether we should stay or leave, around 500 of them would have said stay, which now only fools and a few unreconstructed members of the Tory hard right still think would have been the wrong choice.
