Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Brexit was decided by asking a people to b=vote on something without being given a game plan for the future or being kept up to date with the possible and now obvious consequences - that is how Populism works
The referendum was a binary decision. In or out.
It actually has absolutely nothing to do with populism. I explained this carefully earlier today but like so many of my posts it was deleted.
I am not going to waste my time explaining it again.
If Mps think they can can totally ignore their electorate, it is hardly surprising the electorate feel disregarded.
The originator of this novel concept, Burke, found that when he presented the good burghers of Bristol with this outrageous idea they promptly told him to get on his bike.
This will be brought home to a number of MPs with a vengeance when they finally have to succumb to a general election. They will find playing their electorate for fools has only one outcome. As Roddy Stewert would have found out. But he jumped before he was pushed.
