Having done what he aimed to do, Nigel Farage resigned as UKIP Leader
Having achieved what he set out to do, Nigel Farage resigned as Leader of UKIP.
Now, it is the duty of Parliament to implement what the British Electorate decided on June 23rd, 2016.
Those marching on the streets claim that those who supported Leave are uneducated, ignorant, racists, bigots, xenophobes, et cetera. They don't have the capacity to understand that they are talking about more than 17 million people in Britain of which 1 million are in Scotland where 38% voted for Leave.
Now, this is the issue. The Referendum was not a Scottish Referendum. It wasn't an English Referendum, a Welsh Referendum or a Northern Irish Referendum. It was a United Kingdom Referendum and each vote carried the same weight. Therefore, those calling voters who supported Leave ignorant should look at the own knowledge of mathematics because 51.9% and one million votes difference is a sizeable majority in favour of Leave. What is more, with few exceptions the map of the United Kingdom was blue, the colour chose to represent the votes for Leave.
The proviso is that should Government and/or Parliament ignore the decision of the British Electorate, the matter will not be decided peacefully.
