Democracy in the UK may well be a sham

What the fuck?

Seriously? What the fucking fuck!? What the fucking hell is this bullshit I have heard this morning!? It’s hard for me to be charitable in describing the profound anger that coursed through me on hearing this news.

Apparently, the British High Court has decided that Prime Minister Theresa May cannot invoke Article 50 and officially leave the European Union without a vote from MPs in Parliament. We already had a democratic vote, a democratic referendum, and Leave won. This was our vote, and it’s being taken away from us right from under our feet!

What part of “we won, you lost” doesn’t the establishment understand? What part of democracy don’t they understand? What is even the point of having a democracy if the people can vote for an outcome and then that outcome can be effectively blocked by some elites who had no say in the matter?

The imbeciles that swarm our government want you to believe that it’s not clear what a Brexit means, even when it should be obvious what a Brexit means: leaving the European Union. That means no longer being part of its trading bloc, which no longer being subject to its regulations or to its centralization of power or to the rule of super-rich bureaucrats who cannot be accounted for in any democratic process. What part of that was lost on people? Oh that’s right! They didn’t care about democracy at all! People only cared about economic benefits and immigration. And their precious cult of diversity in the case of the Remainers. When I voted Leave I did so without a care in the world for any of that because all that mattered to me was liberty, freedom and sovereignty. To me, therefore, there is no confusion. And I don’t care if you feel misled or misinformed during your vote. You made your bed, now you can either lie in that bad or get fucked!

What’s worse is that the politicians also kept pushing the lie that people have changed their minds, when in reality only a small segment of the population changed their minds. There is not a doubt in my mind that when Parliament gets to vote on this, the outcome will be Remain because of the anti-Brexit sentiment that pervades much of the government based on what I have seen of them both before and after the Brexit vote.

If the government betrays the people by refusing to accept their collective democratic will, then they will have undermined democracy whilst keeping their own country beholden to an anti-democratic economic bloc headed by delusional elites who don’t give a fuck about the man on the street and can’t be voted out of their jobs. They will have rejected liberty, and chosen tyranny. And if that happens, I will have a burning hatred of this country, or at least just this country’s government, for a long time. And then, one day after I graduate from university and am fully financially prepared, I will be happy to set foot on the United States of America.
