It seems that the people who voted against Brexit seem not to understand how a democratic process works, or are only happy when the outcome is what suits them.
In fact those same people who voted to remain really do represent everything the EU is about and the contempt it and its leading unelected officials have for democratic process and democracy on the whole.
This should not come as a surprise as the EU, on many occasions, demanded that national referendums that were held in different countries, like Ireland in 2001 and Denmark in 1992, should be canceled and another referendum be held because the EU didn't like the result.
On other occasions national referendums that were held in France and Holland in 2005 and who voted against the EU ratifying the Lisbon treaty, were just flat out ignored by the EU and the Lisbon treaty was implemented anyway.
"We must keep voting until we get the result we like!" the EU and its supporters logic.
