"But in a democracy it's irrelevant what a minority thinks. A majority of British voters voted for Brexit; it's that simple."
Yup, true. No diagreeing from me. Those of us who didn't couldn't win the argument. So we're stuck with the resulting clusterfuck, unless we get out (under consideration). That said, one of the amazing things about democracy is just how fickle the people can be. The mobilis vulgaris can change their collective mind about things very quickly. I think the next two years may concentrate some minds quite intensely as they realise what they were promised simply isn't going to happen without them personally suffering quite a lot of pain as a result. A deeply cynical part of me is half convinced that this is actually May's tactic - to make the Brexit process so utterly awful it forces public opinion to flip
"You're the ones who voted for Brexit. It's not just the US that's nuts."
Yes, Spot on. I agree with you. But it doesn't stop us laughing at the tangerine ballsack.
