Passing Thoughts Of A Mad Priest ( on illiberal liberals )

Ever since Boris prorogued Parliament, liberals have been screaming blue murder about it being an attack on democracy. Yesterday, at the Liberal Democrat Party conference, the delegates voted to cancel Brexit without another referendum if they won the next election. As our multi-party but first past the post electoral system invariably results in a government that gets into power with the support of far less than half the people who voted, this would mean that they would overturn a majority decision and replace it with a minority one. If I was a cynic intent on scoring points against the liberal elite, I would probably now mention something about an “attack on democracy” and accuse those who are intent on riding roughshod over the will of the people of being a bunch of brazen hypocrites.
