I feel the referendum was very undemocratic. It didn't include expats living in EU who will almost certainly be impacted.Hi At',
I am not a 'true blue' - never have been and seriously doubt I ever will be. Historically, I've always voted Green or Liberal. Not any more: I'm now politically disenfranchised as there's no party that sufficiently reflects my views. I was conned into voting Tory for the first time ever at the last election because, foolishly, I thought they would deliver Brexit. The breakaway independent - supposedly centrist group - might, potentially, have been of interest to me - save for their opposition to Brexit. To my mind, that makes them anti-democratic - so I can't support them. Besides which, it looks to me as if their love of the EU is just about their only common denominator. So, when this mess is eventually resolved, I doubt there will be sufficient political glue to hold them together. If they are to survive - let alone prosper - the ex-Lab/Con members respectively will have to abandon some basic principles that they've championed for many years. I can't see that happening.
Students who will be impacted had a poor turn out.
Having a single 50.1/49.9 split for deciding such an important decision leaves process open to abuse, fraud or just simply errors of all sorts i.e. Cambridge Analytica targeting adverts to sway opinion.
So for many people who keep banging their democratic drum about the 37% determining the fate of UK is to me a little stinky off.
Country needs direction and leadership and you don't want to vote or provide leadership. You got us here and like Cameron you walking away. Very lame.
Then there are those who never vote but did vote for the brexit and will never vote again. Then the same people who don't participate say democracy doesn't represent me.
A great deal of mixed-up puppies out there keep talking about the will of the people? If you ask them any reasonable question about Brexit the reply is - it is the will of the people? What exactly is the will of the people?
This will of the people business is effectively, what they were promised and their dreams, packaged up as the democratic referendum they voted on.
Brexit isn't going to fix any of it that's for sure.
