Then again we live under a Monarchy at the end of the day, not a democracy, no matter which way "They" care to spell it.

Yes i can see that now about London, my mistake.
When we did vote through, imho, the people were hardly in possession of all the facts pertaining to the matter of Brexit because it was after the polls closed when British voters started to think seriously about the implications of their choice.
Which is why a second referendum would now seem to make sense, now that the in's and outs deals and no deals are on the table.

Which is why the minute the result was announced we should have had a cross party group consisting of our best minds, including people from the business / financial sectors etc, senior Civil Servants, possibly even some interest groups representatives tasked with the duty of drafting the UK's proposal to the EU.
This should have included negotiating tactics, anticipated compromises, red lines, blah blah blah.
But we didn't and we gifted the EU the upper hand in negotiations.
May did absolutely nothing for a full year....she dithered and the country was rudderless.
Was this by design or incompetence....or a mixture of both?
And now we are where we are.
The incompetent, self-centred and self-serving leading the blind and bewildered into completely unchartered territory.
The rest of the world must be pissing themselves laughing at us....I know I would be if it were happening anywhere else.

Might be better if you replied to things I actually said rather than things you made up.
Same question again. Do you think we should leave the EU if the majority want to stay?
