1982 the English punk rock band The Clash released the Song Should I Stay Or Should I Go, and they reached new heights of success. More then thirty years later the mayority of Britains decided in a referendum held across Britain, the UK should leave the European Union.
The art critic and Middle East based writer Arie Amaya-Akkermans commented on his facebook site the following morning: The stupidity of Brexiters is infinite. They yell democracy this, democracy that. This referendum was the equivalent of asking teenagers to vote whether they want to learn algebra. Of course nobody wants to learn algebra, so of course you don’t ask them. Especially because there’s no better alternative, so they’ll stay dumb. Like the dumbasses that call this self-inflicted gunshot in the head a victory.
You cant describe this geeky referendum with better words.
