Benign dictatorship for me - the UK (and the US) have proven that we are collectively too stupid to deserve democracy.

Democratic anarchy. Although that's not far off from where we are now.

I wouldn't disagree but I guess it depends on who the dictator is. At least we might get a violent revolution to overthrow the dictatorship rather than apathy from the oppressed.

first time I've seen The Sin Bin united across the political divide, we agree our Parliament is pretty much useless.

We already appear to have anarchy, it just happens to be wearing a suit this time.

Several months ago I went to a business function/dinner, at this event were a group of senior manager/ directors I have known these people for over twenty years. One is a director of a global company based in Frankfurt, joking with them I said you will all have to up your game seeing as we are leaving the eu. To a man and woman they all laughed and said you don’t actually think we are leaving the eu do you. Well over 17 million voted to leave so I assume we are leaving was my reply. Response from them ,well we might leave in name only but we will still be in the eu in real terms. Recent events have proved them right.

In that case I presume they weren't 60+ year old xenophobes?

You can check out any time you like but you can never leave.

Unfortunately it's not because of nefarious sabotage of the referendum results, but countries have to be part of one of the large blocs to have any chance and we just have to remain close enough to the EU's orbit to have any hope of avoiding a recession or worse and permanently damaging everyone's economic future.

Not according to Boris, Gove and Farage.
Apparently, our future prosperity lies further afield, in the commonwealth countries and with America :lol:
