#MarchForEurope has been shown over news channels around the county/world today.
The organizer was given a platform to speak by the BBC and he had some interesting things to say.
‘Democracy didn’t end last Thursday with that result’ – Correct.
Approximately 52% of the country voted to leave the European Union. And as of yet we haven’t seen evidence that the will of the majority will be overturned. If we do leave the EU, which I wholeheartedly believe we will, then he statement will be proven correct. We have just started a process of regaining a true democracy in this country, where the people’s voice is heard and the majority rules.
‘Voices and the beliefs of the leave side should definitely be acknowledged’ – Thank you.
We would have expected nothing less. A referendum was held, the majority voted to leave the EU and so we should be heard. This country is a parliamentary democracy, which means we elect leaders to sit in parliament to represent our views and implement policy that the majority of people agree with.
Now up until now it sounds like this fellow makes a lot of sense when you snip out parts of what he was saying. Until he says this.
‘Must be some way we can stay in the EU’ – No.
You have conceded that the voices and the beliefs of Brexiteers should be acknowledged and that we still have a democracy. The democracy didn’t end for sure. We were asked what we want, and now that must be carried out. To want us to stay in the EU after the referendum result is to suggest that our democracy should end.
What made this particular event worse is the appearance of Bob Geldof and the Liberal Democrats.
A political party which uses the word ‘Democrat’ in its name should probably not be part of a movement opposing democracy, especially when that party has little to no credibility or seats. Bob Geldof showing up doesn’t help anyone’s cause as we saw with the boat fiasco. A rich celebrity telling us how we will all be better in the EU and he knows best is like being spat at in the face.
Events like this just show how bitter the ‘Stronger In’ side are. Britain deserves better than to have its democracy squashed by a few thousand demonstrators. The losers, who always think the are the smartest, are always the loudest. But if they are so smart then why do they lose.
