Visceral Hatred of Democracy
I have taken part in a number of online discussions during our ongoing referendum campaign here in the UK. What has struck me most is the apparent visceral hatred for democracy by some on the Bremainers.
There is no reasoning with them, they say that Britain is not a democracy anyway. They are effectively claiming that Britain is not a democracy and as a result the EU does not need to have democratic aspirations.
Part of the reason for the absence of democracy and accountability in the UK is because MPs can turn round and say ‘beyond our control’ because of rules made by the EU.
