Brexit: A “Fucking Peasant’s” Revolt

It is claimed that about seven hundred thousand people descended on London over the weekend to call for, what would be for all intents and purposes, a second referendum on whether or not the UK should remain in the EU. Such a high attendance at a demonstration may influence the government, especially if it is looking for an excuse to pull out of Brexit without it appearing to be their fault. Certainly, the march will give remainer politicians in all the political parties more confidence to align themselves publically with the call for a "people's vote."

My guess is that a second referendum would result in remainers winning the day, probably fifty-five/forty-five in their favour. This will be due mainly to many of those who originally voted to leave being more frightened of leaving the UK now than they were at the time of the first referendum and, also, their realisation that they are not going to get what they really voted for, a radical reduction in all immigration, whether they leave the EU or stay in it, as the bosses need the cheap labour and the bosses always get what they want in the end, no matter who is in government.

My question is this: What effect would the overturning of the popular vote as expressed in the first referendum have on British society? Would working people just shrug their shoulders, accept that their liberal betters were right all along and go back to playing bingo and watching the premier league on Sky Sports or would a realisation that the liberal elite really do believe they are all ignorant racists who should never have been enfranchised in the first place, lead to a nation split in two waiting for our own Donald Trump to come along to take advantage of the feeling of complete powerlessness felt by the British "underclass"?

Personally, I fear it will be the former reaction because the working people in my country have always given in too easily. At the end of the day "we are all fucking peasants," as the archbishop of liberal hippie elitism, John Lennon, so succinctly put it in the lyrics to his song, "Working Class Hero." Heck, we are almost as bad as the Russians when it comes to "knowing our place."
