I agree also that the referendum is not anti-democratic, it was a very close vote, initially the votes was in favour (or favor) to remain but leading up to it there were campaigns and debates, the big hook used by the leave parties is kicking immigrants out of UK and you will get your jobs back, but there was not enough information provided to the public about the referendum, yes you had debates and stuff but the ordinary person would not understand and just take it as would they like to be with the EU or not.

And now that vote has been cast, as adarq mentioned now they will have to move forward, they wouldn't dare to go against the vote of the people, it would be disasterous.

well said, raptor. the thing about mattyg's stupid meme is that liberals (using the US sense here because i'm american, not sure whoever made that meme knows that the word has different meanings here and across the pond) are every bit as aware of the negative potential of referendums as conservatives. i can think of plenty of examples of awful referendums called by conservatives. brexit, for example. or prop 8 and prop 13 in california, or the minaret ban in switzerland.

people are morons, easily swayed by cretins like nigel farage. that said, i'll match your churchill quotation with another:

Quote
Democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
wednesday: fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

I knew that was going to be the reply to my quote. But yeah, it really is true.

I voted to remain, although was never 100% convinced - it was just the safer option in the short term. Brexiters seem to have been tarred under the same brush as xenophobic racist idiots, however many of them just believe the EU is not viable economically over the long term as do many people in other EU countries.

The EU was kind of shitty in many ways. I mean even MSF - a leading medical aid charity have refused to take money from EU countries in protest at how poorly they have handled the refugee crisis. I think it was a novel idea at the time, but there is no real evidence that it was going to work out in the long run. And look at Greece.

- I really liked Dan Carlins views on the topic from an American viewpoint, relates to trumpism too for you americans:

(I'm so tired so some of what I wrote may not make sense)

also for problems with the EU

This seems to have had an affect on another european country, who also wants to be free from the EU.

The Bank of England, after seeing signs of what they had predicted would happen in regards to the economy, is starting to come true and they are in that 'I told you so' situation (if thats what you would call it)
