Re: And all we can do...
"It is critical" is meaningless. So is "it really is time".
It is no good if we "move on" ever closer to doom.
The price far exceeds any promised or actual benefits.
People thought the 1975 referendum was a one-time vote.
Neither the 1975 nor the 2016 referendum was binding.
The wording of the question in 1975 was "Do you think ...". A large majority thought, and voted to keep the 2 year old status quo.
In 2016 the voters were asked for an opinion, without having to think. They were not told the true price. They were not asked why or how we should suddenly unravel 46 years of status quo and leave.
Surely common sense and prudent housekeeping can be even more important than trying to respect every idiotic outcome of an imperfect democratic process.
