Democracy Rules!

In the UK we have a legal system built on democracy. This means everyone has a voice but the majority win. This means there will be occasions when your vote is the opposite to what you have voted for.

Next week the country votes about leaving the European Union, people have already voted to leave but there are many who disagree and want this changed.

Should we be allowed to change something when the majority want it?

In school terms, the majority want a longer break. They win but the minority are not happy with the result.( You also have to remember that no one knows how anyone voted.) They want a shorter break, they are not happy at all and continue to protest. Is this fair? What do you think?

  1. Yes because everyone has a voice and everyone can express their their opinions.Also people want to change a major thing then they should be able too.

  2. I think it is fair they are protesting as everyone has a voice and is equal but a majority of people voted longer breaks so the vote has been done.

  3. Everyone should have a say because everyone is a important to someone and nobody should be left out. We think the fairest way is majority rules that is what OST people want as they voted for it.

  4. I think that this is fair because every one has a right on saying what they would what and if alot
    Of people that are saying that we should split the
    European then let that since alot of people want that then let it happen

  5. Yes it is because everyone should be allowed share there opinion even if the majority think otherwise we need to keep both sides happy and equal. I think this is absolutely fair since everyone including the public has the honour to have free speech which means they can release their opinions on whether that topic is fair or unfair.Its also not all about what the majority thinks of,it can be the minority for a fact.However if the majority thinks the opposite of what the minority are saying it is fair for the majority to win in that state.So if more than several people preference that thought and a tiny amount of people dont I would give that to the greater amount of people because it’s phrased “the more the better!”

    Sometimes yes but sometimes no, yes because if it is something considered bad like brexit then people would like to change it but no because it is what most people have decided.

    Is this fair? What do you think?
    I think it is fair because everyone has different opinions and has a right to share them and no-one should be aloud to shout/scream or be mad with them. In life if you listen to people’s thoughts you will gain and that is why it is good to listen.

  7. In my point of view,I think this is absolutely fair since everyone including the public has the honour to have free speech which means they can release their opinions on whether that topic is fair or unfair.Its also not all about what the majority thinks of,it can be the minority for a fact.However if the majority thinks the opposite of what the minority are saying it is fair for the majority to win in that state.So if more than several people preference that thought and a tiny amount of people dont I would give that to the greater amount of people because it’s phrased “the more the better!”

  9. In my opinion it is fair because everyone in this world should be able to share their opinion on how they feel.I also think this is fair because everyone has their own opinion to what is fair and unfair.It is also fair because people have their own point of view.

  10. Yes because multiple people want it to change and on the ONTHER hand no one wants to leave the Europeain so if the onther side win it should be allowed.

  11. I think that this is completely fair because everyone should be allowed to express their own opinion and share their point of view on subjects and things. These people have a right to tell us what they think is best and why they think this. Even if the majority thinks otherwise, we should process the thoughts that others have and respect them. Then, we should come to a sensible conclusion which would suit both sides of the argument and make them both equally happy. However, to achieve something like this, we would need to be way more mindful and thoughtful about the people who are aware of this argument but in a different way of thinking.

  12. We shouldn’t be able to Change things if the majority vote for it because it would not be fair for everyone else who doesn’t want to.
