    I just think fair is fair and the people have spoken. Even if some people backed a side for the wrong reason.

    63% of them are Leavers who've realised they made a mistake.

    I think people are just coming to terms with what some of the consequences might be...

    The failure to accept the result of a democratic vote from supposedly democratic people is annoying me.

    But I think the question needs to be asked how many people voted to leave based on the 'assumption' that the £350m pledge given for the NHS was a fact and not an error in the Brexit campaign?
    doesn't matter, every voter should've double checked/done their own research if they were so bothered by falsities. Next you'll be saying 'how do you know people whereat bribed with chocolate by their neighbour to vote'

    I don't see a point - turnout was high enough, and I think that a second referendum would only make the Leavers more determined while deterring the "soft" Remainers from voting again.

    The best thing we can do now is look at how to make the most of what has happened. regardless of whether you are pro-Brexit or not. Let's all pull together and do what's best for everyone.

    Which is do nothing. There's nothing your average Joe can do any more - it's all in the hands of Brussels and the Tories.

    No we can't just "pull together" because the polarity between right and left, liberal and conservative, is just too great, hasn't this vote shown that? I guess that, in true stiff-upper-lipped British style we'll carry on regardless (what's the alternative?) But the days when we united as a nation ended in the last World War. This is a civil war, you just have to choose your corner and fight for it.

    This is getting ridiculous.

    A petition for another referendum just because the Remain didn't get what they want? It will then become never ending.

    Pathetic.

    We can pull together regardless of this outcome. Time to start working together.
