I remind you it was a referendum and Labour in dithering and implying there would be a 2nd referendum lost the election, the Tories did a U-turn and followed the wishes of the electorate, in spite of employing a f**king idiot eventually to get us out of the EU.
Any other decision but Leave in light of the referendum result is undemocratic and a vote loser as events have shown.
Why have a referendum if it is as you imply, of no consequence?
Because it was not binding, nor was it necessarily the final say either. Other countries have rerun EU referendums in the past, and you don't have to look very far to find them. It's nothing new.
Scotland and NI voted to stay in, and local parties who refused to honour that vote saw their vote collapse at the last election. It was a Brexit election, and for reasons best known to himself, the weak Labour leader didn't understand that. His time as Labour leader has been a conveyor belt of talk and losing elections.
oh no the horror, BBC employees losing their jobs, have you got any idea of the inefficiency and waste of money in that organisation, which is odd for a something state run!!
BTW totally agree about House of Lords, it should be abolished and replaced with an elected senate, which I think may well happen fairly soon.
Regarding the EU yes the MEP's are elected but who elects the presidents, why not the people now that they are becoming more and more powerful with every new EU treaty that comes along.
The House Of Lords is the final say. After them it's the Head Of State to sign the bills they pass. None of them are elected, but it will never be abolished.
The EU Council Presidents are elected by the national heads of state, who in turn are the representatives of the people. The EU Commission President is nominated by the MEP's of the party with the most seats won in the last EU election, usually the EPP.
You can discuss how efficient or not the BBC is somewhere else. The most relevant point here is that 450 people have lost their jobs from a state run broadcaster, just as the divorce agreement takes effect. I'm sure the majority were talented, qualified people who have done nothing wrong. But the land of milk and honey they were all promised if the nation voted for Brexit, has turned out to be a New Year Nightmare for them.
