BREXIT has become a cautionary tale for those of us in the U.S., with now over 3 million people, and counting, asking for a do over election.
The day after the election, watching a panel discussion, one of the major proponents of BREXIT, was asked about a pro BREXIT advertisement which advised hundreds of million pounds could be diverted to British health care services if the U.K. left the EU. The pro-BREXIT proponent denied they had ever made that claim. When confronted with the ad itself, he said that everybody knows not to believe campaign promises.
As millions of Brits are about to learn (or re-learn as the case may be), there is no "lemon law" to protect them from having bought a fraudulent political product. No such law exists to protect Americans, either.
The Brits have a system that allows for, by American standards, a rapid change of government, Under our system, no such recourse exists; we have to endure 4 years of a government that came in under false pretenses of a glib salesman's campaign promises.
