Re: How long until the new referendum will be called?

So if we don't honour what those people wanted, then we're not being democratic.

The great thing about democracy is that we're allowed to change our minds. Maybe you think it's wrong that every few years some nutter gets on his hind legs in Parliament and calls for a return of the death penalty or the end of abortion, but personally I get great comfort both from him losing that motion by a factor of ten and from him being allowed to make that speech.
