We must hon­our the vote

Bristol Post - - COMMENT -

IN re­sponse to Mr An­drew Wood’s let­ter ask­ing that we have a Peo­ple’s Vote – has he re­ally un­der­stood the mean­ing of a ref­er­en­dum?

When Bri­tain voted to join the Com­mon Mar­ket as it was called then, we were not asked to have a sec­ond vote just be­cause not all the pop­u­la­tion wanted to join. We ac­cepted the vote of the peo­ple.

Democ­racy has to be up­held by the re­sult of the ref­er­en­dum to leave the EU.

We all had a vote and the ma­jor­ity chose to leave. To say that a 70-year-old has now died and the up and com­ing pop­u­la­tion want a chance to vote is quite lu­di­crous. There will al­ways be un­der age vot­ers wait­ing in the wings.

Does he want all the older gen­er­a­tion to die off and have younger vot­ers change the re­sult? We have to live in the mo­ment and what­ever age is vot­ing that vote has to be hon­oured and up­held.

I can­not be­lieve that re­main­ers are still try­ing to change the re­sult. I for one have not changed my mind and would still vote to leave.
