And Here’s The EU Brexit Solution – Vote Again To Get The Answer Right

Here we’ve that delightful European Union insistence upon the correct form of democracy. Instead of it being us, the demos, who tell the authorities what we’d like them to do, what we’ve hired them to do on our behalf, we are mere sheep to be herded into making the decision desired by Our Masters. If we do actually vote for something the federasts don’t desire then we should be asked to vote again. And again, until we give the right and desired answer.

This is laid out fairly blatantly in this latest:

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] The European Commission has issued an emotional plea to British politicians, calling openly on Parliament to authorize a second referendum and abandon Brexit altogether. “We share so much, we are all defending liberal democracy. It is much better if the UK stays in the EU,” said Pierre Moscovici, the powerful economics commissioner. “If the only way to get out of the mess is a second referendum, why not?” he told the World Economic Forum in Davos. “It would be fully legitimate.” Mr Moscovici said the EU should not put pressure on Westminster but helpfully suggested the model used by Ireland after it rejected Nice and Lisbon treaties following referenda. [/perfectpullquote]

And France, and Holland, even Denmark, when asked and they rejected they were told to do it again until they delivered the desired answer. That is, democracy at the EU level is only us agreeing to do what we’re told instead of us telling them what we’d like to be done.

At which point we can and should – as we have done so far – tell them to go boil their heads. For while continentals might think that a reasonable simulacrum of freedom and liberty we don’t. The entire and basic point of the process in that Anglo Saxon incarnation is that we tell them what to do, not the other way around.

I’ve been involved – tangentially – in two votes where the winner won marginally and the losers cried foul and demanded a re-run – where the winner then won again by a hugely increased stonking majority. Remainiacs are playing with fire demanding a second vote.

Unless the next referendum has two options – both of which are remain. For example, May’s shite deal or stay in the EU.

Actually, the proposal will probably be:

1 – Remain
2 – May’s deal
3 – No deal

thus neatly splitting the Leave vote while concentrating the Remain vote…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
