Brexit: Peter Sutherland and David Lammy demand anti-democratic rebellion
The Labour MP David Lammy, your elected representative for Tottenham, doesn’t much like democracy when it fails to agree with him. He wants the EU Referendum result ignored. Peter Sutherland agrees. Sutherland (born 25 April 1946) is “an Irish international businessman and former Attorney General of Ireland”. Since 2006, Sutherland has been working as the United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General for International Migration.
He wanted the UK to remain in the EU. The pensioner thinks the result was wrong. He wants us to think of the children. “Somehow this result must be overturned,” he demands.
Many agree that it was all unfair. You can sign a petition to ask for another referendum. Many have clicked their support for a 2nd go at getting the ‘right’ answer.
Sun columnist Rod Liddle Canterbury, has another petition:
Mr Lammy has demonstrated that he does not understand democracy. He should be removed as MP for Tottenham and replaced by a set of plaster garden ornaments – an otter * with a fish in its mouth, a heron and a gnome with a fishing rod.
Gnomes, or ‘little Englanders’, as the Guardian readers call them.
(*Why are animals getting a kicking? Leavers say Remain are otters; Remain says leavers are “turkeys“. Politics is for the birds.)
