In June, 52 per cent of Brits voted to leave the European Union. The voter turn-out was 72 per cent — the highest ever for a UK referendum, and higher than in any general election in nearly 25 years.
But a “Remain” voter filed a lawsuit against the results, heard by three unelected judges.
Look at how the British press reacted.
“WHO DO YOU THINK EU ARE?” That’s the Sun, one of the most popular papers. “Enemies of the people,” screamed the Daily Mail, with the names and pictures of the three smirking judges right on the cover. Even one of the fancier papers, the Daily Telegraph, said: “The Judges versus the People.”
In a democracy like ours, Parliament drafts the laws, and courts are supposed to interpret them, or strike down laws that are illegal.
But in Canada, judges make the laws.
And no media in the country dare to criticize our courts.
It’s unthinkable that four Canadian newspapers would do what these British papers did: name and shame the undemocratic toffs who thought they could overturn the will of 17.4 million voters.
In Canada, most journalists work for the government anyway.
You the voter? Your job is to shut up and pay for it all.
