Putting it to another vote is a dangerous idea. The people have spoken.



And if there was another vote that would also be the people speaking.


No it wouldn't. That would be denying the will of the people.

Referendums are denying the will of the people? Quite the leap.

What about refusing the result of a referendum?

Was there or was there not a referendum regarding membership in the European Union in 2016? If so, what was the results of that referendum? Now, should the government follow through on the results of that referendum?

And people are allowed to honour the result of the 2016 Referendum.

One referendum does not preclude another. Democracy means people are allowed to change their minds.

I'm not aware of a single democracy that allows people to rescind their votes and make another one. That's not what democracy means.

I suppose they should have waited and had a second one just in case people changed their minds.

That would be the referendum with a 67% vote in favour of continued membership.

Just live with it.

If ONE Referendum was good enough in 1975, then ONE is good enough in 2016.

History Lesson

What we voted to REMAIN in in 1975, was the EEC.

The E.U. is not The EEC and nothing like it.
