Letters: Election result a harsh lesson against defying democracy
SIR - The general election result that stunned a lot of people in the country as they awoke last Friday morning shows you just what will happen if you use every undemocratic trick in the book to defy the result of the biggest act of democracy in our nation’s history.
You will lose your job and possibly your whole political career, and rightly so.
I hope that this is a lesson that our MPs and leading political, cultural and media figures will learn, that if they attempt to defy the results of democratic votes, they will not prosper.
Ian Linney, Hordle
