Amazing to see the contempt so many in UK have for their fellow citizens. Rather than accept the referendum result, and the fact it was by a decisive margin, they are rolling out:
- 52% of British are racist
- Older citizens shouldn’t get a vote
- The working class are stupid and were fooled
We also see Stuff reporting:
Just days after voting to leave the European Union, more than 2 million Britons and UK residents had signed a petition calling for a second vote, forcing lawmakers to at least consider a debate on the issue.
Parliament has to consider a debate on any petition posted on its website that attracts more than 100,000 signatures.
The proposal, posted before the June 23 referendum, said the government should hold another plebiscite on EU membership if the support for Leave or Remain in a referendum was less than 60 percent in a turnout of under 75 percent of eligible voters.
In other words they want an elite minority to be able to keep everyone else in the EU against their will.
Mind you the way they have worded it, the result would actually be endless referendums as neither side is likely to ever get 60%.
Tim Blair shows other petitions trying to overturn results people don’t like 🙂
