Someone said :
This is a very common response/answer to every brexit problem ," the people voted for it" but it's disingenuous because the British don't have a written constitution they don't have referendums usually and the referendum they had was only advisory their parliament was supposed to manage the process but it was hijacked by the Tory right, the leave result is accepted but whats not accepted is a blank cheque Tory wishlist which is where the problems are popping up because what the maytoryukip manifesto showed was raw Tory ideology and the maybot can't cover that up by repeating nonsensical brexit blather.
Looks like there might be a hung parliament which means the sheep have turned
The absence of a written constitution is absolutely not an issue here.
If they had ignored the outcome of the referendum, like the French on Lisbon, or did the Irish "let's run it again till we get the outcome we want", there would have been murder about how undemocratic the process was.
This is why calling an election to get a brand new parliament is the only rational way to deal with the issue: ensure that the will of the people is consulted a second time, to confirm which parliament will implement the desired Brexit.
If she wins, even by a small margin, then it will be proof that the people do want to "hard" Brexit that the hard-right wants.
If Labour wins, then they will feel the pressure from Scotland and Western-Northern Ireland to get a second vote, and/or independence consultations, depending on how well the regional-lefts will have performed. So I repeat and confirm what I said
(maybe not what you heard):
- People were not tricked in to Brexit, they decided based on all the information they decided to believe from either side;
- People now have another say to decide how softly or hardly they want to be screwed.
(May thought that a quicky would be in her favour, we will see if she gets a tip for swallowing...)
