A Democracy doesn’t overturn the will of the people before it is even implemented and tried

Brexit, or rather the Brexit process has brought both the best and the worst out of almost everybody who has anything remotely to do with it.

Yes, I include not only the Politicians, but also the commentators and journalists – or rather the opinionators, many of whom have lost any sense of coherent reality when it comes to democracy, instead mistaking their own priorities for being the very same thing.

Having held a genuine people’s vote on Membership of the European Union on 23rd June 2016, the idea that holding another Referendum fits completely with this now obsessive behaviour, but is dangerous in the extreme as if carried out, it has the potential to create many more problems for this Country and our population than it ever has the potential to solve.

Whilst we are continually being told by those with vested interests that the Public have changed their minds about Leaving the EU, it is in fact their frustration at the lack of real action and attempts by Remainers to ignore democracy and derail it which has tired people to the people where they really feel no compunction to be involved.

The reality is that nobody could have changed their mind about what Leaving the EU would actually feel like, because to date, it is simply not something that we have even experienced or tried.

To be in a position where it could be genuinely argued that people have changed their mind about being Independent from the EU, the UK must first carry out the Instruction of the People; implement Brexit properly in every meaningful way, give it time for the changes to be experienced and only then could there potentially exist the circumstances where evidence might exist to even suggest that a return to EU Membership of the EU is something that might again be seen as beneficial and as such something to which the UK is once again inclined.

The binary choice of the EU Referendum made clear that the people’s vote was a majority decision to Leave, rather than Remain.

Therefore to Leave on the Terms that the People have instructed, we must depart from the EU on WTO Terms.

Thereafter, with the wheels of Government turning very slowly, it is unreasonable to expect that the necessary chnagess to Legislation would have worked their way into implementation for at least 2 years and probably several more beyond.

It is only then that the British People will really be in any position to even begin experiencing the result of the required Brexit, to have lived with it for a meaningful and unhindered few years, and are therefore be in a position to provide real feedback upon any question of changing their minds over leaving, if by that point there is any chance that they would wish to return to EU Membership and actually perceive that there could be any benefit to the UK doing so.

To overturn the process any sooner would be undemocratic, remove legitimacy from our whole political process and place the UK at the will of forces which will be the complete antithesis of anything that we have come to recognise as coming from the democratic mould.
