… the Cooper Bill Or about the value of referenda, democratic accountability and political statements …

Yvette Cooper, House of Commons deputy for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford in the district of Wakefield City and responsible for the highly odd Cooper Bill, which bans a No Deal Brexit and came into law on 9 April 2019, said in an interview on 20 January 2017 among others:

[…] “We didn’t go into the referendum saying ‘I want you to vote remain but to be honest no matter how you vote I’m going to ignore you’. It was fought in good faith and nobody said ‘well you know what, I’m just not going to respect the result afterwards‘ – that’s the kind of thing that Donald Trump says.” […] MPs must respect the referendum result – even if it leads to hard Brexit … […]


The statement of Ms Cooper
in this interview shows exemplarily that
parliamentary democracy is a farce.

Do you think the people are tired of democracy?
How can the people be tired of democracy if they live in a lobbycracy?
