    I thought these threads would be gone by now
    These Remoaners have a lot to rant about. It won't die down anytime soon I'm afraid.

    I watched many videos, read many pro-remain and pro-leave articles, and even people's posts on forums like this one. They all have one thing in common and that's the argument from the leave side stands up much stronger than the argument from the remain side. The democracy side of things absolutely nailed it for me. It's really weird how you can be so sure your view is the right view yet only 52% of the population share it.

    I share the view that British Parliament should be held accountable for the laws and regulations imposed on the British people and that if we leave the EU we can then control these laws and regulations for our benefit within the world instead of EU controlling our trade policies etc. But a friend at work put forward a case for the EU by saying even though we pay into the EU, isn't it right that we help the other countries establish the economic power and infrastructure that we have to help the other people of Europe be on more an equal footing with us.

    Does it simply depend whether you want countries to connect and become one, towards an eventual one world government (global equality?), or being a believer in sovereignty?

    Amazing, the state has brainwashed this child so hard that he wants a 2nd referendum so that the electorate will give an answer that satisfies the government.

    Make no mistake, we're seeing the shadow of a dystopian dictatorship here.

    The UK had a chance to vote on the issue. More than 1 million more people voted to leave the EU than voted to remain. If we had another referendum and the UK voted to remain, there would be a petition from the leave voters to get yet another referendum. This would lead to a cycle of constant voting, and then nothing would ever get accomplished or decided. It's like the Scotland independence vote, Scotland voted to stay in the UK, When the public votes, the result should be respected. I personally think there should be a time limit of at least 25 years placed on referendums on the same issues.

    If there's ever a 2nd referendum there's a high chance that those who sat on their asses on the day and didn't vote cuz they didn't think the Leave side will win will come out and vote. And then the whole story will reverse. And that's what the Brexiters don't want to happen.

    Will you accept a third referendum if the remainers manage to rig it properly the second time round?

    The pm was elected in their constituency just like pretty much every other pm this country has had, you should look at how this country's democratic system works.

    Yeh. I mean, if the majority want torture then they must definitely get it. Nothing stopping them in a democratic system like Rights or laws and etc.

    I'm fed up of Brexiters harping on about democracy and that there should not be a second referendum.

    Well if they are so confident of Britians hatred of the EU and so passionate about democracy then they should relish a second referendum.

    But the reality is Brexiters are Scared of losing. They know fine well that a lot of Brexit voters now regret what they did. Many thought it would never happen. So take them aside.
    Then among the Brexit voters are some realists who never thought of the mess that we are now in that soon all that may be left of the Great Britain they love is England totally on its own, without Scotland or NI or the protection of the EU. Take them aside and you've probably got less than 40% pro Brexit and over 60% remain.

    Of that 40% you've got mostly retired people who arn't worried about recessions, unemployment or loss of EU funding of vocational training and further education, that's around 20% And of course nationalists and small minded racist bigots making up the rest.

    We want a second referendum, its in the interests of the majority!
    We don't need to be, we have won.
