Dear Jean-Claude Juncker
Paul Mason

I wish I had your confidence Paul that the creeping roll back of democracy by Neo liberal inclined technocrats could be achieved with a remain vote.

The fact is the only reason we get to vote on this at all is because the incumbent power structure made a mistake and the only way we would get another vote in future (seems unlikely they would make the same mistake twice) would be to vote in an anti EU party with a majority.

Democracy is messy, it’s meant to be, on balance I prefer the chance to mix it up now with Brexit than keep our powder dry for fear of never being able to fire that trajectory altering shot in future.

I agree with your sentiment but not the conclusion.
