General elections have become things you do out of habit rather than expectation
Everybody knows it is an exercise for the dog to the polling booth rather than a hope that the politicians would break the habit of a lifetime by carrying out what they promised before the election
Leaving Europe should have pushed the percentages into the 90s rather than wavering around the lower seventies
Elections are now won on negative promises - this time, getting "Johnny Foreigner' off our backs", captured perfectly by Farage's 'Son of Rivers of Blood' poster - a policy that disgraced its former architect out of politics because he was an embarrassment even to a right-wing party with its roots in racism like yours
Referenda are far more democratic than General Elections have become in Britain - they have made th world a better place for homodexuals, for women and hopefully, for the homeless in the near future
For the former two, see the discrepencies beween the Irish Republic and the little bit of Ieland that still prtends to be British in the N.E of this country (even that is teetering on the point of cjange as the Empire continues to crumble to dust)
