    I'll respect what doesn't leave people terrified and fearful. What doesn't let the hate filled and xenophobic win. That doesn't criticise people for having concerns for a ridiculous plan jepodising us all

    I watched the video earlier. Thing is that pragmatic matters are important. For me principle came first hence I voted leave but I am still concerned about the practical aspects. It is too early to be fearmongering but naturally the fearmongering is at hysterical levels. I think that in the long-term we can come out of this better off but it will take Scotland and Ireland not wanting to leave in the first place for us to even have a UK to improve.

    They cannot propose bills. So, therefore, an unelected body can decide what they want, and we have no power besides maybe saying no and the other nations overriding us.
    Yes, that's the democracy you so dearly crave. 48% of us said "no", but we have to deal with it.

    It seems that the real problem is that you only like democracy when it suits you.

    What are you on about, majority rules. I wouldn't be whining and talking about having a second referendum if it was the other way around.

    Bruv... There was once a time when the UK wasn't part of this EU and it still managed just fine. Don't you forget that.

    You're claiming the EU is undemocratic because we didn't always get our own way.

    No, I am claiming it is undemocratic because we couldn't propose our own laws. That is a cornerstone of democracy. The fact we lost lots of the votes is just the icing on the cake.

    No it chose fear over rational thinking.

    I would hate to say most leave supporters are racist but a large proportion are and their reasons were solely to do with immigration with no second thought to other issues which would arise.
    Haha.

    Fear are you out of your mind.

    Cowards like yourself voted out on ridiculous fears of WW3, a great depression, mass unemployment.
