I will give you all a brand new car if you drive me to the betting shop today. Now obviously I won’t but if you drove me on the belief I would, then you would be acting in the same way that millions of those who voted in the referendum did. You would be acting upon lies.
I presume you then would feel a little angry and upset, unless of course that after seeing my empty bank balance and terrible credit rating you still believed my lies, or were too ashamed to admit you were tricked? I suppose some would have just wanted to take me to the shop for the ride out? Some who believed that if I won my bet I would pay out so worth the risk? Some who just wanted to get out of the house.
This is kinda what Brexit was. This is why people get angry about holding a new vote now the lies have been outed.
The chances are that if I then asked you to take me again to the bookies you might refuse.
