Do you find democracy uncomfortable?

Claire Fox, the director of the Institute of Ideas, thinks the vitality of liberal democracy has been proved by the Brexit and Trump results. “We have to be careful of an anti-democratic response to perfectly legitimate democratic votes. Quite a lot of liberals are saying, ‘well, democracy is not working so well because people are voting in a way we don’t want them to vote’, which strikes me as a supreme irony.”

What’s to disagree with here?  Answers please!
