Another “referendum” backfires – Biggest political cock up since Cameron’s referendum?
It seems that the political elites of our society just don’t learn. Once again the people running a country went to the polls confident that voters would do the “sensible thing” (i.e agree with those in power) and were soundly proved wrong.
In this era the people at the bottom end of the pile just WON’T do what they’re told. Which must be very frustrating for the political mandarins who run things. Was this an even bigger political miscalculation than May’s snap election or Cameron’s Brexit referendum? Just who cocked up the most? Perhaps we should ask the people and have a referendum on this point too? I’m sure the organisers of this poll would manage to cock that up too…although I’m not sure how…
