nth Referendum

nth Referendum

June 2019

In The Times 19th June 2019 we read in the article Jeremy Corbyn to back second Brexit referendum how the communist Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is for a 2nd Referendum on Brexit.

Firstly, anyone that subscribes to a 2nd Referendum does not believe in the guiding principle of democracy and realising the will of the majority. First, implement the will of the majority and then later consider an alternative approach, if so required.

When back in 1973 and the British people apparently voted to join the EU, was there a second Referendum afterwards to give the people a 2nd chance of deciding? No.

When back in 1997 and the "Scottish" people voted to have their own Parliament, was there a second Referendum afterwards to give the people a 2nd chance of deciding? No.

After a General Election, do people that voted for losing parties demand another General Election straight away? No.

But for some reason in the case of the 2014 Scottish "Independence" and 2016 Brexit Referendum the minority of people demand a 2nd Referendum. Why is that? It is because the people that consider they lost the vote [the minority] will not accept the will of the majority, and as a result only sign up to democracy in the event the decision agrees with them. That is not how democracy works.

In the event that a 2nd Referendum goes the same way, what then? A 3rd, 4th, ..., nth Referendum?

If a 2nd Referendum then goes the way of the moaning vocal minority non-democratics is that the end of it because they are now happy? But what about a 3rd Referendum for those that now lost? As we see the whole notion of a 2nd Referendum is flawed, unless it can be proved that the 1st Referendum was illegal or corrupt.
