The trouble with democracy is Democracy. Fancy leaving decisions in the hands of the masses such as Boris Johnson!
Where is the common sense? Where is the logic? It’s true that the European Union is mightily flawed. It may be the case that the concept is unrealistic.
But it’s there. And Britain is part of it. Withdrawing is a bit like the child who won’t play because the other children won’t let her pick up the ball. It’s not helpful to withdraw from the game.
What’s helpful is to change the rules. It’s not too late to abandon democracy in favour of practicality. But not via another referendum. That’s not government.
