Failure of democracy eh. More Brits than naught voted for independence from Brussels ... that's how democracy worked with Brexit.It's the failure of democracy. If the slight majority is ignorant as F, you'll have a whole country going down the drain.
Because your only choice to vote is usually "Shit A" versus "Shit B". You'll get screwed over anyway. Also, the thinking minority can never win over the dumb majority.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that Intel is about to receive billions of US taxpayer dollars for a new chip foundry and part of that deal is to screw the Brits.

Barack Obama says exit from the European Union would leave the UK "at the back of the queue" for trade deals, saying Britain is best when leading a strong EU.
