    There is a third option and that is to take up arms. Europe has had revolutions before, in 1789, 1830 and 1848, to name just three such years of uprisings. As long as politicians fear the people, they are more likely to do the right thing.

    • They lack fear today. Let’s hope that changes.

      • They’ve forgotten that they’re supposed to elected representatives, not elected rulers.

    Normally, I agree with Condell. This time, however, my response is: “The power of your vote?!? What a MAROON!”

      I would have to agree. As Brexit currently shows no sign of actually happening, I would hazard that votes are treated like polls by the elite, and merely used to tweak policies to favor the unchanging end goals.

        Unfortunately, I suspect you are correct.

        Exactly. Following such votes, policies are simply tweaked to make those end goals more palatable. No serious change in direction would ever be considered.
