Referenda? UK has them all the time - never before reversed or re-run...

I was getting a bit tired of the EU Remainers attack on referenda, they keep pretending that they are very rare and never really return a worthwhile result. This particularly came to a head with the Catelonian independence referenda in Spain. Where the remainers are torn between their public support for 'the people' pronouncements, and their true 'control the people at any cost' core beliefs.

I knew of a few referenda run by the UK government on independence issues - The Falklands, Gibraltar and Scoltand - but thought I'd do a quick check for more... and turned all these up (people would have known about them at the time - but memory quickly fades, thank goodness for the internet!).


To this we must add:

2002 - Gibraltar - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibraltar_sovereignty_referendum,_2002
2013 - Falklands - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falkland_Islands_sovereignty_referendum,_2013

So don't be fooled by the remainers - the UK has honoured every referendum in the past, if brexit is not completed it will be a massive change and betrayal of the British people by the established politicians.
