Parliament takes axe to 2nd EU referendum petition

My family 'voted' to go to Glastonbury.

In the face of horrendous weather, ridiculous travel problems, other issues I won't bore anyone with, we 'voted' to change our minds, decided we no longer wanted to go.

Leavers would have it that we were bound by our initial decision, that we had no choice but to go. The decision not to go was wrong, outrageous and impossible to accept, and we should not even have been allowed to make it. We said we would go so we would have to. They would have forced us to go even if it would have killed us.

That's not democracy as I know it.
