The People Have Spoken, the Bastards

Unfortunately, while this referendum is part of the democratic process, the campaign was not.

The campaigners didn’t need to be held accountable for their words; they weren’t elected and don’t have to follow through on their promises. All they had to do was win once. Democracy has to keep winning. If elected leaders mess up, they (generally) get voted out. This referendum was a victory for the faceless elite, not for the Leavers.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
