We are primarily a sock importing country. The fall in the pound since the Brexit vote will increase the price of socks.
Tariffs on socks will also drive up the price if no free trade deal is reached.
However at the luxury end of the market UK sock prices may fall if Common Agricultural Policy reform favour sheep farmers.

Absolutely not, the vote has been done and should be left at that.

No - People had there chance to vote.

No, and why? Because I can only anticipate the same outcome first rendering the recall a massive waste of time and money and a flop.

Ive always maintained that you can just re run the referendum because you dont like outcome - thats not how it works.
However i do have an issue with the original question. those voting for leave didnt really know what they were voting for (thats not an attack on their intelligence at all, its that there was no information available). Tim farron summed it up best by saying theyve voted for departure but not a destination.
Had we been given more information about what brexit would be like the vote might be different. a soft brexit might have seen some remainers vote out and a hard brexit might have discouraged some of the leavers who were on the fence.
SO im very torn, i think we should have been able to vote whilst knowing the rough direction that brexit would take us in but that said i dont want another referendum because that is sore loserism
