Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
"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?"
A different point altogether Steve
No, I see no necessity in leaving Europe whatever, and I see no necessity for referenda being called for without there being a clear need for one
Self-interest politicians and vicious bigots like Farage were allowed to make this an issue - it never arose from pressure from the people - they were never consulted beforehand, just as they are not being consulted now that result the required by those who hold the reins of State has been reached
Referendums should ve a way to allow the people to express their views on an issue they have raised and the process needs to be a matter in which the voters have all the available information at their disposal before they vote
