Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
On what to you base this RD. and how on earth will that solve the problems Brexit has already caused and will continue to cause ?
Do you really believe that the British People are a bunch of lemmings ?
I don't believe they would be so suicidally stupid and if they are we deserve everything we get, but at least it would be a decision taken with some knowledge, which is what democracy entiles us all to


Your question is already answered.
29 Brexit party seats in the EU parliament.(A clear majority)
In local government elections:
Conservatives: the party lost control of nearly a third of the councils it had.It came out with 93(down 45).In the process,it saw net losses of 1,269 seats.
Labour: Had hoped to make ground, not lose it. The party saw a net loss of six councils, ending up controlling 60, and had a net loss of 63 seats along the way.Lib Dems: The biggest winners. The Lib Dems managed net gains of 11 councils – leaving them in control of 18 – and 676 councillors.

of course the brexit party had no time to participate in these elections and the Lib Dems picked up the protest vote

I have no doubt the level of frustration of the electorate has continued rising since(03.5.19)

The coming election is going to be brutal and I predict Labour is going to be destroyed for decades.
