I saw a metaphor:

A hundred people on a bus narrowly vote (52-48)to go for a picnic. Throughout the journey to the picnic destination, some of the people that would have preferred to go to the pub instead, grumbled but most of them acquiesced.

When they get to the field, they found there is a bull in it. It's pissing down. There are clouds of mosquitoes. There is cowshit in abundance.

That's the mataphor. Implication being that the same coachload would now make a different decision. Pub ahoy!

Except the coachload, given something like another vote, has voiced more or less the same opinion. No matter that the loud mouthed prick with the loud tie has been annoying you with his "picnic means picnic" pronouncements, or the guy on the opposite side of the bus, with his vehement argmuments of the benefits of going to the Red Lion insatead have had their say. They've again collectively insisted on dragging eveyone along to their shit picnic. And the driver (how the fuck did they pass their driving test?) has little choice but to take them,

Yay for democracy.

Nobody can honestly claim a mandate from yesterday's results. Plenty of people will claim a dishonest one.
