Brexit not happening would be proof that the outcome of a democratic vote can just be ignored.
As much as i think the referendum should be adhered to, its important to note that it was made clear that the vote was for the government to take action, but was not legally binding and not the same as say an election majority vote.
A referendum is just asking a question, It was a cocky gauge of public opinion by a government who didn't think it would pass. Now, absolutely the government should listen to it because a majority of the public want something so pretty obvious it should go that way. But still a big difference in terms of her argument for democracy i feel. Especially when everyone had a different vision for what Brexit meant and no finer details were worked out. Like if everyone had a deal agreed and then the government sacked it off - that's ignoring a democratic vote.
Technically this referendum CAN be ignored, but not delivering anything when they say they will.... Theresa May and honestly everyone in Westminster are a whole other level of incompetent.... not sure i'd even give them the notoriety of saying they're trying to be anti-democratic and oppress the country by maintaining a death grip on their vision for the future; I just think they're absolutely shite at their job and embarrassing us.
