Need to work together

How dare South Shields MPs blast the decision to hold a referendum. We are still living in a democracy not a dictatorship.

I voted to join 40 years ago, a decision I have regretted, especially since Europe decided we had to pay tax on gas and electric etc.

I, like millions of others, want my country to have control, that was my main reason for voting leave.

My only concern is that the politicians accept the will of the majority, swallow their pride and their petty differences and work at getting Britain good trade deals in the world (this would include undemocratic Europe)
