Labour: Free British broadband for country if we win general election

We really ought to pay more attention to the people who effectively said 'this is too silly to participate in'.

If you don't vote then you have agreed to side with the winner, whoever it is and whatever the vote was about. That's how it works. What you can't have is the losers adding them to their side and saying "only 34% voted for this", well, no or the vote wouldn't have passed.

The only workable alternative to that is to entirely discount those that didn't vote, because either they didn't give a stuff about whatever the issue was, or they were too slow to make up their mind.
