    I will not re-iterate my point that Brexit proved to me that people severely underestimated the power government has and the fact that they also did an extremely poor job of educating themselves in advance.

    Buyer's remorse is when there is no chance of repeal is a hard pill to swallow...

    Also if read the fine print the referendum was just a simple survey.
    If the politicos had had any real concern for the country they would have said "thank you, we'll look into it and get back to you" but no they went off the deep end, unchecked and unabashed.

    The system worked exactly as designed.
    So do electric chairs...

    Even your horror threads are more worthwhile and entertaining than this.

    Well the vote for the referendum was to leave. It doesn't matter how many people couldn't be bothered to get out of bed, they just don't count. So the referendum was given and the result was LEAVE. At that point it is the job of the MP's to carry out the will of the voters (or put forward that it would be best to stay) but instead they underhandedly carry on with the pretense of leaving while undermining the entire leave process. With no intention of making any EU withdraw they spend 3 years wasting money to sabotage what the voting majority wanted.
