We are seeing the end of democracy when ‘the mob’ think they are entitled to overturn the result of a general election or a referendum. But the mob should be careful what they wish for – the alternative is government by dictators and historical examples in the last century – Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Tito, Hitler, Franco, Mussolini etc. – are not so very appealing. First the mob drives out a democratically elected government or an existing tyranny, but then a new tyrant arises who murders those who might oppose him (including members of ‘the mob’)
Below ‘The Mob’ outside Downing Street after the General Election waving the Hammer and Sickle of the former Soviet Union. Do they know how many millions of people were tortured and murdered on the orders of Stalin and on the orders of those that preceded and succeeded him? Or do they not care?
