Don't be so stupid. Riots are civil disobedience. We live in a relatively good democracy. I have lived in Africa for years. Thugs and ignorant people riot. You want change then get yourself elected to represent people who share your views
Not sure what Africa has to do with riots as theyre a staple of near enough every western democracy as well. Equally, whether you like it or not, they tend to be effective.

Would you care to provide some facts to back this claim up.

So rioting ( in the UK) is not effective, with the one exception of the poll tax riots of the early 90's ( in which I participated)
Ergo the op's suggestion is just fanatasism, and a knobheads view at that.

Well you cant say its ineffective either as, thankfully, we rarely experience significant rioting. The fact remains though that countries such as France and America (plus most of the ME and Africa) have seen extremely effective rioting - which was my point.

I'm curious if you only call it a 'knobheads view' because you dont like the topic he proposes it be done for or if thats you view on rioting writ large - odd considering your earlier admission to hooliganism?

You're correct we could do with a touch of reality, we're leaving the EU and we need to get on with things.

Hmm. Why do I not believe you? In any event, leave or remain it makes no difference. People should respect and ACCEPT a democratic vote. Getting sick of Remainers, to be honest.
That sounds like a you issue. This isn't about brexit, this is about the shutting down of democracy.
(Original post by ColinDent)
No you didn't.
Yes I did. I didn't vote for no deal, but I did want out of the EU court which is why I voted leave. Anything else you want to tell me about me that I should be aware of?

Nothing really happens with riots and protests. Loads of people always get hyped up and say they’ll join in, but when the time comes they never actually show up

Or just vote and accept the result....
rioting is for scumbags,
Yes you can vote. But not every ones vote is represented in the voting system. Only a few individuals change the outcome of a election.

Yes i believe that we should respect the referendum outcome if it was a majority that voted out. A 16.5 million of individuals who live in the UK voted out of the EU. Which out of more than 65million of individuals who live in the UK to me is not a majority. at all. Thats why many dont respect the outcome of the referendum

Nonsense, for a start the proroguing of parliament been very exaggerated and blew up to be something it isn't anyway. Regarding democracy did you vote leave to remain in the EU? If not you should support the new session of parliament being created because our harder line stance is what has made the EU reopen negotiations, which you claim to want.

What more important direct democracy or parliamentary democracy?

Parliamentary democracy voted the things that it now doesn't like as well as voting to give the referendum in the first place, which remainer campaign claimed to dissolve parliamentary democracy for direct democracy, untill it lost then they have acted like spoilt children ever since.

I call it a knobhead view because he/ she expressly states that during the riot they should " not cause harm to anyone that doesn't deserve it" ie if there's someone around that has an opposing view then harm them, that is the difference.
