Politics

Quote of the Day

By Jim in the comments:

OT but sort of related, have you seen the article by Matthew Parris in the current edition of the Spectator? Where he admits that he as a politician was basically contemptuous of ‘public opinion’ and saw it as his job as one of using his power to thwart any parts of public opinion he found distasteful?

 

I have to say if the referendum result of 2016 achieves nothing whatsoever on Britain leaving the EU, it will have done one massive public service – it has forced vast swathes of the political class to openly admit their utter contempt for the voters, and that if they personally don’t agree with them, the voters can go hang, they’ll do everything they can to prevent anything happening they don’t like. Its made the nature of our ‘democracy’ incredibly clear for all to see.
