Response to nationalize the fed (Reply #14)

Sun Jun 26, 2016, 06:44 PM

23. The EU laws are passed by the EU parliament, not the bureaucrats

(and the EU parliament is actually more representative than the British one, being more proportional, and not having a second house that is appointees for life with a few hereditary peers and Church of England bishops).

If you think that the leave voters were 'resisting' or 'starting a revolution', you're delusional. Look at the demographics - it was the over 50s. Look at their stated reasons in polls - it was to cut immigration from the EU. Look at how they voted in the 2015 general election:



This was the British equivalent of the Tea Party.

How much were you posting about the referendum before it happened, by the way?
