no i dont expect we will, but then im a remainer in terms of wanting us to stay in the EU. but i am also a strong believer in democracy so we have to leave.

the leverage we have is that we will be able to make judgements independely and not have to involve 26 other countries.
democracy? we have a 2 party system, where the party who get the least votes overall can still be elected into power, once in power the prime minister can just shut down parliament to make sure his way wins, and unless you went to the right private school your chances of being selected to run as an mp are close to zero, I'm kinda struggling to see the democracy in all of this.
