Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Well I can't think of an issue less suited to having a referendum about than membership of the EU. The biggest lie of all that was sold to us among a whole plethora of lies was that it was somehow as simple as putting a cross in one of two boxes on a piece of paper and that that was "democracy." In the last three years we've seen our national money draining away, every economist pointing to the dire threat of a severe shrinkage of our economy, the chances of amazing trade deals evaporating completely and a potential border crisis that initially seemed to even elude most of our politicians. Ironically, the whole issue has been handled so ineptly that a referendum now seems to be the only way out of the mess, and only then if remain were to prevail. I never thought I'd hear meself saying that.
