4.00 am on Friday 24th June was a moment in European history when democracy in action put the 'Great' back into Britain - and Wessex.
It was the time it became clear that a critical mass of the disenchanted and marginalised, came together and rose up in sufficient numbers to say, not - 'enough was enough', but - 'more than enough is too much', and it must cease forthwith.
Those in Wessex and Cornwall who saw the sense and had the courage to act to extricate themselves from domination by the Europe administration have set the opportunity if not laid the groundwork for instituting the first regional parliaments in both territories, and hopefully for other regions of England - and Europe if it is to survive.
It was the first significant success for Britain in this second decade of the first century of the third millennium - whose dawn was so infamously destroyed with such appalling abuse by nation state governments including Britain's through illegal invasions and violent repression against the rise in demands for democracy around the world.
That the system for voting in the referendum and the choice it provided was designed to ensure the electorate would be riven in two - was the standard device for divide and rule undemocratically whatever the result, and it demonstrates beyond doubt that it is long overdue to change our voting system and our means of implementing it.
Now it is the turn of the establishment, the inequitably 'rich', and the abusively powerful to have to contend with feeling if not of much pain - at least of anger and disbelief which hitherto and for far too long from on high it has visited on the poor, deprived and disposessed who finally have risen up against them.
The more intelligent of these 'losers' to-day, will take time to reflect and to realise it's game over for the neo-imperial, sadist model of top-down diktat by aloof nation-state government politicians, corporate institutions and irredeemably corrupt and fatally flawed finance systems throughout the world.
Now is the time, also long-overdue that this must be rooted out and replaced with bottom-up democracy managed in suitably scaled regional and urban parliaments in Britain (and Europe if it it wants to survive) and whose members will be answerable via proportional representation to sovereign power vested in the parishes and villages in country, town and city. Also - a stable and equitable finance system must be designed and implemented.
Any attempt by the Tusk-Junker administration to impede or frustrate a measured and gradual withdrawal from its dominion, will serve principally to encourage - not to intimidate others, who may do likewise in the sad demise of the Europe project which otherwise could be saved by the solutions the Wessex Regionalists have been advocating for more than forty years.
It is urged they get on with it without further delay.
