Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

View Post
Democracy died (a long time ago in fact...). It's just some weirdos playing with her remains... Like contesting a referendum's legitimate result because it's against your opinion and views...
So, these nations that hold elections or referendums where the turn out is over 90% and the incumbent leader is re-elected for the umpteenth term with over 90% of the vote despite the country falling to bits, raging unemployment and crippling inflation, and you or your family "disappears" if it speaks out against the election or the leader is, by definition, a democracy because it allows its population a vote?

Not saying the UK is in this boat by a very long chalk but the circumstances under which people were making their decision on the EU was hardly a balanced, subjective, fair or well informed environment.

There's democracy and there's democracy.
