Re: About Time

About time we had a politician who could stand up and deliver on what the (albeit slim) majority of people voted for.

But what exactlty is the Will of the People? That's not at all clear cut -

A majority are in favour of leaving.

A majority are against leaving with no deal.

A majority are against leaving with a deal.

The option which has the smallest number of people against is remaining.

In taking an advisory referendum as if a legally binding one we created the worst kind of clusterfuck omnishambles there could be and now Johnson is determined to force through what only a minority want and the largest majority is against.

How the fuck anyone can call that "delivering what the people voted for" or even democracy is beyond me.
