    Civilized people vote and support a democracy, except when they lose the vote?

    Thousands of people have marched through London to protest against the referendum decision to leave the EU.

    Demonstrators at the "March for Europe" rally, organised on social media, held placards saying "Bremain" and "We Love EU".

    In the referendum on 23 June the UK voted to leave the EU, with 51.9% in favour of leaving and 48.1% supporting Remain.

    Critics said that those protesting who lost the vote were "having a tantrum".

    At the end of the two-mile route, protesters gathered in front of Parliament, and listened to speakers including Labour MP for Tottenham David Lammy, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, leftwing commentator and activist Owen Jones and musician Bob Geldof.

    Mr Geldof urged Remain campaigners to take to the streets, speak to their neighbours and work to stop the UK's exit from the EU.

    "We need to individually organise ourselves. Organise those around us and do everything possible within our individual power to stop this country being totally destroyed," he said.

    Pulp singer Jarvis Cocker also recorded a video message for the rally, holding up a world map and saying: "You cannot deny geography. The UK is in Europe."

    Mr Farron later tweeted: "Wow. So inspiring!!! Such amazing support for Britain in Europe today."

    or you can have the Supreme Court intervene like Austria just did.

    and we also did in 2000.

    i just think its interesting how everyone is "lets be a democracy! protesting is the democratic process..." until they lose the vote and then it's "let's throw out the rules because the losing side doesn't like the results this time".

    Funny how people who had an issue with the 2000 election haven't called for any meaningful changes in the voting process since the 2008 election except for changes that remove barriers that help prevent voter fraud.

    Nah, he's famous for giving stupid names to his daughters, and for one of them being a total smack addict who successfully died from an overdose of such.

    voter fraud wasn't why the 2000 election is suspect. the only fraud was not counting all the votes cast.

    you were here, pay attention.

    some of them are quoted today "I voted Leave to protest. I never thought we would win."

    Gee. Actions have consequences. Who would have thought it?

    Dumb fucks.

    I'm glad with this result because it pisses off all the right people.

    Same with Trump.

    Geldorf sounds like a Harry Potter character.
