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

Well they certainly appear to be very politically unaware! Claiming you never voted for the EU while at the same time voting in governments who commit you further to that objective. Voting in a referendum, only to discover later that it was non binding. Failure to show any real concern for the attempt by the PM to subvert the constitution for political expediency.

Some years ago I was shocked to read some U.K. politicians argue that the PR system was too complicated from British voters. I thought it was an insult to the voters intelligence, but after seeing the referendum acted out over the past while I begin to wonder if perhaps just maybe there was a little merit to their argument after all.
