Theresa May has said on multiple occasions she won’t back a second Brexit referendum. The reason? She believes it would be an affront to democracy. Without putting too fine a point on it, this just isn’t true. The reason she won’t call a referendum is that it would be admitting that she failed – and the Conservative party lied.
The Brexit Referendum and the £350 Million Elephant in the Room
How could requiring more input from the British People be un-democratic? Because in the eyes of many a second vote is a slippery slope. “Why not just have ten referendums or even 20!” I heard a gentleman cry on the golf course. Ordinarily, I would agree 100% that a second vote would be an assault on democracy. Unfortunately, there is a £350 million elephant in the room.
