Reader’s comment: To hell with the voters

A fine article and bang on the button.

The reaction of many of our so-called ‘democratic representatives’ to the Brexit referendum result has appalled me more than I can say and completely changed my mind about Parliament and our democracy.

We have grandees from all the main parties taking the ‘to hell with the electorate, we know better’ attitude while others actually have the nerve to tell us we didn’t know what we were voting for.

I wonder if this political elite realise the reaction they will get if they scupper Brexit.
