Stavros Theodorakis. His Facebook post on Brexit

To Potami

I do not question the fact that if the referendum took place again tomorrow, the Brexit percentage would fall from 51,9% to 30%.

Who voted for Brexit? Mainly pensioners, less educated and the unemployed of de-industrialized areas. Those who are vulnerable to the populism of politicians, social media and traditional media. I do not question the fact that if the referendum took place again tomorrow, the Brexit percentage would fall from 51,9% to 30%. The collapse of the sterling must have made many of them already regret their vote. But, in a referendum, you do not get a second chance. Europeans and British will have to live with the wrong decision that has been made. We Greeks, who have ended up being the weakest link of Europe, we need to be very cautious these days, these months. We know, first-hand, that paths led by demagogues and nationalists are dead-end. The answer lies ahead. In the Europe of peoples. This is the time to change Europe. To change it, not knock it over.
