Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The claim that Brexit was decided on democratic is a lie that needs to be nipped in the bud
Democracy demands that voting takes place on the basis of full and accurate information - a basic tenet of the system
From day one the voters were lied to and essential information held from them
Even if this had taken place, it does not mean that decisions arrived at were 'democratic' - patently not so in the case of Brexit
The driving force behind Brexit was racism and xenophobia, the result of which has led to a 42% rise in recist incidents
Far from expanding the rights of the British people, the Brexit vote has undermined and endangered and even removed the rights of several million non indigenous British citizens
his has been compounded by the failure of the state to protect the rights and even lives of these citizens
Maybe iyt's time for somebody to examine the legality of the racist campaing in the light of the subsequent hate-incidents it has caused so far
Just a thought
