The left-wing is unhinging over Brexit and it is a wonderful thing

Amongst many on the left-wing is the claim that, despite a record turn out in an election, democracy has been eroded by the Brexit vote.

Presumably because their side didn’t win and democracy only works when they get what they want…until that happens democracy is broken.

Actually, democracy was broken and that is why Brexit prevailed.

Arts, lifestyle and travel blogger, David Farrar, explains:

The EU overall has been a force for good with many benefits for many people. However it is not what most would regard as a democratic government. The heart of democracy is that the people can sack a Government they have got weary of.  There was no real way for the people of Europe or the UK to sack the EU Government when they think it has got it wrong and needs to go. Without such a pressure release valve, discontent grows and grows.

The concept of an EU is good. The structure of the EU is bad. It may have worked when they had nine members, but not for 28.

Consider how unhappy we would be in NZ if our Government was not elected at the polls directly. Instead we each elected a local Mayor and Council (and all at different times) and all the Mayors got together and they decided who would make up the national Cabinet and Government to decide on our laws.  We would not stand for it.

You need to have the ability for the people to directly sack a Government, and effectively choose its replacement. It is that ability and need to be responsive to the public that makes a Government accountable.

Europe was increasingly flexing its muscles with ludicrous laws that many in Britain saw as eroding their way of life. If you push Poms into a corner then they tend to fight back, just ask Adolf…oh wait.

Democracy was destroyed by the EU and the UK took their democracy back.

So, stop listening to idiots on the left proclaiming that democracy is broken simply because it delivers results they don’t like.

The people of the United Kingdom voted and they decided it was Brexit time.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
