Democracy

SHARE
'There is in all democratic power, a fortiori in all pure democratic power, a hidden oligarchy, which is at the same time contrary to its principles yet indispensable to its functioning.'
François Furet, Penser la Révolution française, 1978


The current Cabinet contains 8 ministers who voted Leave and 14 who voted Remain. It *is* a Government of National Unity. What Remainers want is to create a government without a general election dedicated solely to overturning a national referendum. How is that “national unity”?


Brexit was not a rejection of Europe or our wonderful European friends. It was a rejection of the anti—democratic nature of EU institutions and you confirm to us every day it was right to leave.
Belinda De Lucy, M.E.P. in the European Parliament,10 October 2019
