Re: It's democracy or violence
F8ck you. the raw aggression of core die-hard leavers that I talked to in person before and after the vote was shameful. your rhetoric has led to real violence in documented cases. and you duped a load of middle of the road "mildly pissed off with the state of things" people into voting with you because they thought somehow it might make things miraculously better.
I'll defend the immigrants with my pitchfork. step outside if you like.
do any of you think about the set of circumstances that led to this?
the con:lib 2010 coalition - libs do a decent job on many policies, are vilified for one particular policy that PR dave managed to pin on them, then get thoroughly knifed in the back in 2015 by the ungrateful great british public.
dave puts referendum in his 2015 manifesto - expecting a coalition and never having to deliver on it, and then unexpectedly wins due to the aforementioned knifing.
barrow boy farage gets himself a bigger and bigger profile on a single issue , until he finally wins it - at which point they implode from the implications on their tiny brains of actually having to do something. thus proving that it was the talking about it rather than the doing of it that mattered to them. boris not a lot different except he is a wee bit smarter.
personally, I hope that the political parties split and reform, leaving us with 5 main groups:
right - leave
right - remain
centre (likely remain)
left - leave
left - remain
and the interest based such as green, ukip etc.`
I am utterly fed up with this "england voted leave, scotland voted remain" crap . Not in MY bit of england we didn't (I wish there was a way to make a uk street legally part of scotland!).
Give us a general election, with a wider distribution of parties/people to vote for who can properly reflect our views, elected under PR so that all our votes count. Let them debate the issue, and propose a question to put before the people. THEN I will respect the result.
