The following words were spoken by David Cameron, the Prime Minister of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland:
“I’m absolutely clear, a referendum is a referendum. It is a once in a generation, once in a lifetime opportunity and the result determines the outcome. If we vote to stay, we stay, and that’s it. If we vote to leave, we vote to leave, that’s it. You can’t have neverendums, you have referendums.”
He is talking about the vote to leave the EU his side lost two days ago.
Read the words with care. Note the three statements of the obvious which sound like he’s saying something else.
Yes, a referendum is a referendum, and yes, the result of the referendum does dertermine the result of the referendum; oh, and yes – if we vote to leave, we certainly have voted to leave.
What’s strange is that many persons have come out to protest the result, saying that they dislike the result and so want another vote. Such people don’t understand how these things work. The complainers could have kept their intolerance for democracy hidden.
There is no need for them to fight for another vote when the result of the one they lost will be ignored.
It is true that, these studenty types are so clueless about politics they don’t know when they’ve won.
Enacting Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty (which used to be called the EU Constitution, and we were promised a referendum on it; but they changed it’s name, so the government slimed out of the referendum it promised) will NEVER happen.
We will NEVER leave the EU.
