I AM one of the much maligned and ignored forty-eight per cent of ‘remainers’ who are often lectured on ‘democracy’.

I observe that only 92,000 people, unrepresentative of the UK population, voted for our new ‘No deal – do or die’ Prime Minister, who has swiftly changed the whole government of the country.

I also observe that 124,000 people voted for Boaty McBoatface! [in the 2016 poll to name the National Environment Research Council's new polar research ship].
