Democratic Double Check

It seems that Theresa May pretends to protect democracy by not offering a 2nd referendum because in reality she wants to “protect” herself from having to admit that she made several big mistakes. These mistakes would become clearly visible if a 2nd referendum would take place. To Theresa May, saving her own face is more important than the future of the United Kingdom and its citizens.

Claiming that asking people for their opinion in a 2nd referendum would do harm to democracy is utterly foolish. A 2nd referendum will be based on knowledge which was not available to the voters who participated in the 1st referendum. That’s obvious. Theresa May can think clearly and knows that. Therefore not offering a second referendum is worse than foolish. It is selfish and evil.

After May's heroic failure: Check and adjust! A 2nd referendum is more democracy and smarter democracy.

Applying the Deming Cycle (plan–do–check–act or plan–do–check–adjust, is good governance.

The UK should do it.

The EU should do it.

Good governance requires "Double Check" (actually more: a cycle of checks): .

A good tool to put differences aside rationally is the Deming Cycle ( ). With regard to the consequences of the #Brexit, applying »plan–do–check–act« is the least you have to do if you don't want to deliberately do harm to the citizens of your country.

(I know that the Brexit discourse is largely irrational. I keep trying nevertheless.)
