RETIRED

Now that I am retired, I can express myself on my own web site without fear of those with whom I disagree.

In democracy and when MP's vote against the express will of The Electrorate, what happens next?

Parliament has now advised Government to ask for a delay and, as far as I understand it, Government is planning so to do. There are now two possibilities:

1. The EU say yes. Then we wonder what the UK Government will do with that time.

2. The EU say no. Then we wonder if the UK Government might withdraw Article 50. That would be counter-democratic.

Alternatively, The UK Government allow No Deal, since this is the default position.

Here are some things I just cannot be certain of:
In short, they (almost all the politicians) are saying 'crashing out' would be a disaster. Why would that be? We were not in any trouble before we joined. We always used to be able to manage our country, our imports, exports, business and regulations. Why on earth would we be unable to do so now? We have been doing all this stuff under EU regulation. The Government have said they are planning to continue to impose EU regulations as they stand now. There is no difference, that I can see. All the necessary departments, staff and planning are in place. Why should there be a disaster?

The same 'they' are busy tellying us that we will be short of all sorts of things like medications, food and who knows what.

Democracy

Although I hate to admit this, I need to admit to the fact that we had 48% remainers in the referendum. That being the undesputed case, it would be only right and proper if we were to compromise. DESPITE hating May's Deal, I have to admit that the democratic solution is to go eith that. It means we would Leave, whilst Remaining under the thumb of the EU. If that isn't compromise, I don't know what is.

I think that is the worst possible solution for the UK (well, not worse than remaining) but would be DEMOCOCRATIC. Since the Remainers seem to think Leaving would be the worst choice, what more can I say?
