Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
"We were consulted about our wishes on remaining in the EU"
Without information, that was meaningless, and, as it turned out, highly dangerous - -t was askig people to vote on their instincts and not on their knowledge or intelligence
The results have become glaringly obvious, Britain's economic and social structure have been badly effected, Parliamentary Democracy - the nearest thing ordinary people have to a say in their own lives, has been undermined to the point of destruction and the United Kingdom is facing break-up, with an outbreak of 'The Troubles' an almost forgone conclusion
None of this can possibly described as 'democratic' by the wildest stretch of the imagination
The Referendum was tantamount to asking a blind man to put a cross on a blank piece of paper - the only decent thing now would be to ask him to do it again armed with the knowledge of hat happened last time
I like to think you care enough to respond to this Nigel, but you or any of those who share your desire to leave have failed to do so far
Your silence says everything that needs to be said about the rights and wrongs of Brexit as far as i am concerned
It is totally beyond my comprehension why anybody should wish all this to happen - to the present generation and to the next - in self-imposed silence
