Democratic Challenge

Stephen Dorrell, chair of the European Movement UK, has challenged the Brexiteers’ position that to oppose Brexit is to be undemocratic.

In his article in The Independent earlier this week, he discusses how circumstances, reality and opinions are naturally subject to change: “Democracy is the means by which the ministers … are subject to constant challenge, and required to provide day by day explanation and justification for the actions they take in our name.”

So to challenge is democratic … just as those in favour of leaving the EU have been challenging our membership since 1975!
