Re: Dodgy behavior by Vote Leave? @Snowy

they argue that our gov can ignore the voters

T'was ever thus. Or do you think that a majority of the voters wanted the hideous and expensive waste of lives and money that was the recent Iraq adventures? That they wanted Maggies Poll Tax?

And yes, under some circumstances I would expect elected politicians to behave in a somewhat more clear headed way than the electorate - especially when said electorate has been comprehensively lied to (like the famous 350m bus signs or the faked refugee pictures).
