When the French and the Dutch voted to reject the European 'Constitution' in 2005 look what happened:
'When French and Dutch voters rejected the European constitution in 2005 (and according to Valery Giscard d'Estaing, the current Lisbon treaty is the "same as the constitution"), they were sneeringly insulted by their betters in Brussels. Neil Kinnock said it was a "triumph of ignorance". Andrew Duff, Liberal Democrat MEP, labelled the "rejectionists" as an "odd bunch of racists, xenophobes, nationalists, communists, the disappointed centre left and the generally pissed off".'
They were made to vote again until they gave the 'right' answer. As were the Irish later. Isn't it odd how history repeats itself?

@ The Greek. Me too! It seems the people who moan about us are the utterly forgettable or the eternally anonymous. I can't help but feel a bit sorry for them.

Giscard d'Estaing was right and Brexit has been a 'triumph of ignorance' too. It's simple to confirm by looking at the voting demographics. The two main constituents that voted Brexit were the uneducated and the old. The uneducated voted mainly because their own poverty made them bitter and they wanted to give someone a kick, stupidly exercising the only power they had to kick themselves right in the teeth, ensuring that their poverty would worsen and the life chances for their kids reduce. The old, looking to the past with rose-tinted spectacles, wanted to get back to the 'good old days'. No one with a clear memory unencumbered by bitterness could think of the pre-EU 1970s as the good old days! Or the 40s or 50s come to that. The 60s? Well, good for some, but not very many in the scheme of things.

Nope...not heard it anywhere before. I've heard a lot of people asking for a vote on the terms of the Brexit deal which is reasonable considering very nearly half the country don't want to leave, but no-one asking for a referendum to change the result. Tell me Clifford, what is it about building strawman arguments to justify your bias that you like so much?
