DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (2629* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 19 May 19

So when the German people elected Hitler or the Hungarians elect Orban, or if the French elect LePen, it doesn't matter what follows
I wonder why you omitted the US President TRUMP? Does he not count as he was allegedly put in place by pesky Russian collusion?

How many times has democracy elected a labour government? The ultimate example of Lords of misrule!

So which is nearer the 'ultimate' lord of misrule - Hitler or a Labour government? Are you really saying, 'on balance, Labour'? I think you could be accused of anti-Semitism if you do.

Democracy is flawed, particularly with a FPTP voting system. One of its flaws is that sometimes power is given to very dangerous people, like those Jim mentioned. Voting for a party with no declared policies increases that risk. Ok, let's imagine the Brexit Party were to be elected with Farage as PM. On day one, he writes to the EU: "That's it, we leave with immediate effect". Done what he was elected to do. His supporters are presumably happy.

Now what does he do from day 2 for the rest of another 5 years? No one has been told yet. And, importantly, his supporters are not even willing to think about it.
