Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems to me that, in such a situation, saying, in effect, "the voters have spoken and there is nothing we can do" is to empower every rich rouge and demagogue in the polity. Surrendering to manufactured lies that deliberately misled voters is a choice, not a necessity. But a majority may well prefer that choice to the choice of trying to explain properly what happened and what are the real alternatives.
