I don't look on this election as being anything to do with domestic policy, which, let's face it, it isn't.
There 's nothing undemocratic in giving people a chance to change their minds.
Especially as not one person voted to leave the EU for the shit shambles we're getting.
It was all supposed to be sunny uplands and easy deals.
Indeed there isn't, that's what elections are for,but, you do not eclipse the result of one election by holding another before the current mandate is fulfilled over the term of a parliament & the same is true of referendums.
If you do, there are consequences, sometimes affecting a country fundamentally for many years ahead & the betrayal by Theresa MAY is going to affect this country for generations.
Those effects, as bad as they currently are, have only just begun, those disaffected voters will exert punishment in both depth & breadth within our system of political government.
When JUNCKER visits Theresa MAY in a couple of weeks or so, she will declare 'Mission Accomplished' to him, she is a traitor who has sold out the democratic decision of the people to Brussels, that was always her intention, her party will pay a very heavy political price for not opposing her or removing her earlier.
Her Cabinet had the power to oppose, they chose to be subservient 'yes' men & women at the price political stability.
Everything that happens from here on is people's justice, with much wailing about those effects felt by those who class themselves as internationalist, the betrayed will opt for the democratic 'nuclear option' of frustrating the Left & Right's 'elitist' political objectives at the ballot box.
The future is one where the politicians delusion of power is shattered, we the people intend to control the politicians on our terms from here on, they will be our 'puppets'.
