Quote of the day: Democracies and opinion polls

If the Tories get a majority, I think you have to accept that enough people want to push ahead with Brexit for that to have happened. Here’s the best part though Remainers: you don’t have to like this or even accept it. You can keep hollering as much as you like about staying in the EU. That’s your right in a free, liberal democracy. You can keep arguing for another EU referendum if you like. That’s how the system works. The government has a majority to do what it said it would and those who oppose the government get to keep making the case that something different is better. Everyone gets their say and no one needs to kowtow to some glorified opinion poll that happened almost four years ago. This is why representative democracy works and is great while direct democracy sucks.
