111 still beleive in democracy

I watched almost the entire debate on the EU referendum yesterday. There were some good speeches and some total arse wibble.

I never really expected the vote to be carried, truth be told, but I did expect more than 111 votes in favour.

So the majority of our Parliament, 483 MP's believe we are nothing more than little children who need to be looked after by the state and have our choices made for us. It's mot really surprising is it when you look around at all the illiberal laws we have forced upon us to dictate our lifestyles.

If they don't trust us to have a fag in a pub or dispose of a carrier bag correctly, how do they expect us to decide on something as important as the European Union.

It's not like they are very good at making choices themselves though, is it? They can't even be trusted not to blow our money on huge expenses bills, never mind something big like keeping the deficit down, the economy on track, illegal immigrants out, crime down....

Need I go on?

If I ever had any respect for our system of Government, it dissolved last night.
