>Maybe if Major or Bliar or even the 1975 referendum had been a bit more honest with the people then we wouldn't be in this mess.
They were very honest. The aim was always political and economic union. The greater aim was to avoid people like you dragging our children back to the 1930s.
Here's a labour MEP's take on it. Actually it's not his take; it's the take of our favourite right-wing rag, the Daily Mail. https://www.richardcorbett.org.uk/daily-mail/
As for the mandate of the people, I didn't vote Theresa May as prime minister. Yet there she is. I also didn't vote for the majority of MEPs. Yet there they are. I certainly didn't vote for the queen. Yet somehow she's the head of state. And not a single one of us voted for this so-called "hard brexit". Yet here we are.
