As he also noted to the Guardian, in his opinion Brexit is the point where the Conservatives and business parted company. Returning to the single market is essential, he and his members think.
I am sure he is right. But my question is what are they going to do about it? Why don’t they all join the Conservative party for a start and overthrow its absurd policies? If not its next leader (and it looks like there could be another one soon) will be at least as bad. If they join they can change that. Why are they waiting?
So the people actually got a direct vote on this. They decided to do what business – in this telling – did not want to do. Well, that’s democracy.
At which point The Sage³ tells us that business should overthrow democracy in the interests of business.
How fascist is that?
