Isn't it interesting how the Brexiters are suddenly less keen on democracy?

Yes, for them "democracy" actually means getting their own way on everything forever.

signing petitions/letters isn't democracy - it's advocacy.

No, it's all part of democracy. In fact, a hundred-odd elected MPs writing a letter to the government following the demands of the people who voted them in is a perfect example of the democratic process in action.

As are petitions that end up being debated in parliament.

But they pick and choose, ignoring the inconvenient parts and relying on people believing the lie that democracy can only consist of referendums, elections and shouty newspaper headlines.

The first two of which are rigged by the last.

Brexit papers not what you think says Davis

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-41887404

he added, "it is not, nor has it ever been, a series of discrete impact assessments examining the quantitative impact of Brexit on these sectors".

Isn't it? Well why the f*** not? This is literally you're job

Other options include:
- The brexit analysis is now being cobbled together hastily
- Davids job is actually to 'negotiate' the UK to a no deal as quickly as possible...

Davis is a notoriously lazy c*** and probably hasn't even done any "analysis"

I'd guess that is either true or he's just not done very much...

David Davis nominated for Nobel Prize for Physics following discovery of ‘Schrödinger’s Brexit assessment

http://newsthump.com/2017/11/08/davi...it-assessment/

The staid world of theoretical physics was abuzz yesterday as David Davies, a layman, confirmed no less than 58 observations of a material that both exists and doesn’t exist.

The possibility had been hypothesized by some of the greatest scientific minds of our era, but was, as of yet, unproven.

Professor Simon Williams of the Royal Society confirmed that, should the claims be true, Mr Davis would be a shoo-in for the Nobel Prize.

“It’s a game changer. That a simple departmental impact assessment is the first confirmed demonstration of quantum superposition is amazing in itself.

“That Mr Davis managed to observe the phenomenon on 58 occasions is incredible. And the parameters are so unexpected.

“The assessments were weighty and well-researched dossiers when he was trying to prove to Parliament that his department knew what they were doing. But now he has been forced to produce them, they have become ephemeral figures of speech. This will revolutionise how we perceive reality itself.

“David Davis has just transformed a purely theoretic field into the new frontier of amazing practical applications, from warp drives to time travel.

“That is as long as he’s not just an incompetent blowhard hoping that another lie will cover up the fact he’s spent months of time and millions of pounds of your money doing sweet f***-all.”

Downing Street lauded the discovery as a sterling example of British innovation.

To further aid scientific research, Theresa May announced she was sending Boris Johnson to CERN’s Hadron Collider in Geneva until he discovers “dark matter particles or a sense of shame. Whatever comes first.”
