The Brexit vote has been another demonstration of the lefts disdain for democracy. From the criticism the left have thrown towards Britain for voting to leave the EU dictatorship to their attempts to get another referendum held in hopes people will vote according to the lefts wishes.
One of the points they try and use to justify a second referendum is that ‘only’ 72% (which is more than half) of registered voters actually voted. Because of that the result that the left don’t like is apparently null and void because 28% didn’t have their say.
They did have their say though, by not voting they have said they are willing to abide by the decision of the majority. In essence they count as part of the leave vote. The same would apply if the remain vote won and the left know it, they would be the first to tell you that not voting is an act of accepting the wishes of the majority who did vote.
The only time a complaint of people not voting would be valid would be if people were actually prevented from voting. That’s not the case here though so the complaints from the left are, as usual, not actually based in reality.
The left hate democracy, their response to the Brexit vote is just more proof of that.
