Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
"You ignored my point Jim."#
And you ignore miine - if they continued to hold that view they would have shown their displeasure before now - either at the polls or on the streets
Has this happened - not to my recollection
Only a minority of the British people voted to leave a papeer thin majority of those who voted
Surely, if those who were unhappy amounted to a serious number it would have shown up in the referendum
The referendum was sold on stopping immigration, not economic advantage and a better standard of life for the people - that's mob-rule populism which touches the fringes of hate-incitement illegality, not democracy
As I said, you're ducking and diving the fact that Brexit has failed the country miserably and will be even worse if things proceed as they are
So farr it's brought down two Prime Ministers and closed down the democratic voice of Britain - Parliament
Britain stands on the threshold of ending up with an unelected dictatorship because it now has a Prime Minister who has shown himself to be willing to break the law
Don't know about you but it scares the shit out of me
