Democracy - You Can't Have It Both Ways

There has been much debate after the #Brexit elections in the UK. Some have argued that there should be a second vote because of a user poll gaining support from over 2 million citizens. The British voted to LEAVE the European Union. 27 nations will have to reschedule their cooperation in accordance with the coming British request to leave the European Union in accordance with the will of the people.

It may sound cold to say it straight out, but I will do so nonetheless.

People who stayed in their sofas didn't get any influence. When you get a date for a referendum you have a choice. You either PARTICIPATE and state your opinion, or you DON'T and don't get a chance to state your opinion.

Repeated referendums would be a farce.

There was only one solution, and even though that may be unpopular, one has to face the facts of democracy. You can't change the rules of the game just because some people don't pay attention to the rules of democracy.

Have a nice weekend. :-)
