It strikes me as odd:

We elect a government that promised us an in/out referendum on the EU.
The goverment puts a referendum bill to parliament which is passed by a majority of 6 to 1.
We then have a clear cut refendum with no ifs or buts. Leave or remain in the EU.
Leave wins by a clear majority.
8 supreme court judges tell us that the decision is not democratic.



  1. Not really confused. 3 judges with brains and 8 with vested interests?

  2. Some politicians are bleating about the 'tyranny of the majority' in the case of Brexit. Yet they consider an election win democracy rather than the 'tyranny of the majority' of voters. Why the difference?
