With respect to “Davbod” – “the Uk wishes to leave” – no, a minority of Brits want to leave. & as for democracy – might be good if the Brits took a look at themselves & their own corrupt electoral system & fundamentally corrupt politicos it spawns.

No, it isn’t. The uk wishes to leave. Some politicians that did not want brexit may see this as a good alternative but the people voted to get away from an undemocratic Brussels. We watched the deliberate electoral fraud that was ‘spitzenkandidaten’ result in an unelected man (whose party isnt even represented in the uk) stand in the eu parliament and claim his own democratic mandate. There is no way the uk can ever accept continued membership of such an organisation. It is fortunate for the eu that so few people bother to follow politics there. If more did I doubt any eu nation would wish to remain.

Will the UK political class rise to this challenge, that remains the big question. It would be stupid not too.
