We are not a democracy

Jonathan Freedland is finessing the argument about sovereignty:  http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/feb/26/brexit-campaign-wrong-uk-sovereign-nation-eu-masters-of-our-destiny-power?CMP=share_btn_tw

There is a simple test one can apply to the issue of democracy.

In every single post war survey of public opinion the majority have said they want immigration to stop.

And yet it does not stop.

It continues at an ever-accelerating rate.

Therefore we are not a democracy.

Therefore we live in a tyranny.

And it matters little that the tyranny is currently benign.

That state of affairs can flip as easily as anything.
