Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
It is highly patronising to suggest that people have to have decisions taken for them because are incapable of understanding it - somebody capable of making the wortld go around, as working people do on a daily basis are capable of understanding anything, given the right information
The only message that was fed to the people - certainly the one that won minority who voted it through was "vote for Brexit and we'll get rid of the immigrants for you" - Farage's claim was as crude as that.
The referendum was not democratic in any way - it was the opposite - populist - based o the lie that controlling immigration would solve everything   
The Brexiteers could hardly promise that a nooo longer existing industry would put us back on our own feet" and thee have been no plans put forward to rebuild an industrial base
The benefits of immigration have been pleaded for for severl years ago - underlined by the announcement last week by the Scientific Community that it will be in crisis after a hard Brexit as badly needed scientists will no longer be able to enter Britain

We can't kick Brexit out as your lot have refused to allow Britons to vote on it now the consequences have become obvious - and largely admitted

Thank you for your good wishes, by the way - mine to you
