When communities and groups within society decide to celebrate their culture and history. they do so because they feel they have both a reason and a right to do so. If some online bod doesn't like that, I doubt they lose much sleep.
Another referendum might be a good idea actually. Airbus just announced that they are considering to leave Britain in case of a no-deal Brexit. Approx. 125,000 jobs on the line if you include the supply chain, and this is just the beginning.
Because the current WE ruling class intensely dislikes the binding kind. Just like their mentors, the USSR, did, with the only difference that the WE clique has no access to the gulags. But they can turn the stubbornly unrepenting into unemployed and shunned with an amazing ease.
It's just as effective as the re-educational camps in NK and China.
Except for the fact that MP's not only voted for it but both main parties stated that they would honour the result...... It was non binding but Labour and Conservative bound themselves to it.....stop playing games......
If that happens it will kill democracy in The UK for a generation. People are already questioning the point of voting if politicians ignore you. People en masse will either stop voting or vote for more extreme parties in the hope of being listened to. Neither is desirable.
Democracy has been killed many times over since the election - May has done her utmost to keep legal advice secret, to ignore the Scottish and Welsh assemblies and to bypass Parliamentary procedure to stop her nihilistic version of Brexit being amended.
Faith in politicians in the UK could hardly be lower than it is at the moment - there might be some falling turnout for a few elections but I doubt it would be a permanent trend.
As for voting for more extreme parties Then UKIP is still in existence and people can vote for them if they want. Britain's first past the post system means it is virtually impossible for smaller parties to come in and get seats in parliament - that's both a strength and a weakness.
- I am saying it is the least bad Of a series of poor options
I actually think it is the worst of all the options.Too divisive and we have already voted. I don't believe the nonsense that people didn't know what they were voting for. Most people saw through all the lies that both remain and leave dished out in equal measure. The only thing nobody foresaw was the Irish border question,because it is an EU manufactured problem.
Not true. Take a look at the lastest economic and employment forecasts for The UK compared to Germany,France and Italy..........
I for sure didn't mean economics this time....
The Brits are infighting like *****, whereas the EU has posed a unified front through all the negotiations. The agreement with the EU rose in all member states and the "...exiters" lost big. All are watching the Brexit-Drama and drawing their conclusions..

I completely agree with you on this one. Which is why I am against a second referendum. I think most British people,whichever way they voted,just want us to get on and leave. Even delaying it will infuriate many.
