Serious threat to our democracy

Further to my previous post, a vote to leave the EU, based on the hope that this will enable us to control our borders and stop immigration from eastern Europe, will have disastrous consequences for our democracy.

People who voted to leave for that reason will be disappointed and will feel let down (again) by politicians who will be unable to keep their promises. This will almost certainly lead to a rise in right-wing extremism and a real threat to our democratic system.
