Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
It is a fact that more people voted to leave than reemain. Just as in 1974 more people voted to remain than leave. What is in dispute is whether it is "the will of the people" when only 17 million of the 65 million that inhabit these isles thought leaving the EU was a good idea. And of those many have now changed their minds. It is also disputed that leaving the EU is wise. Not just by "the people" but by every single economic and commercial organisation. What people want is not necessarily good for them!
