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

.. you think it would be fair not to allow someone to resit an exam (Matura, medical, whatever) if they don't have the full information?
Is it fair to fail a student who hasn't prepared? That's the main reason for exams to exist.

The point is, I am not calling voters unprepared, you are. I think they voted consciously and wellwishingly. What happens now depends on people either honoring the vote or entering a pretty subjective territory of the many interpretations of why the 1st vote should be discredited. It will never work, hopefully. One out of many interpretations cannot be given precedence and be imposed. And if the system tries, it will discredit itself. It is a catch 22 and the only way out is to face forward, honoring what hope people had when going to vote. It will slowly uncover the rotten parts of the political sysrem. It already is very cathartic. SK is in a turmoil but it would have been worse if CZ direspected their wish to part. We are worse off without them, of course, too.

Err.. exactly.
