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

Quote:
Haven't you been campaigning for 40 odd years to get us out of the EU (/EEC/whatever it was called at various stages) even though you lost the original vote?

Incidentally, the government's advisors are still recommending to stay in the EU, so why are unqualified ministers going against this advice?

Losers' Consent is built into our democratic system - we aren't having civil wars every 5 years, but to expect people to shut up on key issues is na´ve. The right to protest is enshrined in UK Law.
No, I have never campaigned on the issue or voted. I was too young to vote in 1975 & had lived outside the UK for more than 15 years in the 2016 vote.
