    Well if that's the case then how did Leave win?

    There was a 1 million people difference between Leavers and Stayers.

    That is a large difference.
    I'll use an example here to explain how: some electoral victories are won by minority creating a minority government (eg. Labour in 1974). Majority isn't actually needed for one side to win. Leave won by minority

    Not going to happen full stop as EU president Junker said "OUT MEANS OUT"
    But there is the suggestion that it will be Juncker who is out. Some EU members are saying this is all Juncker's fault.

    If they (parliament) did it would be understandable.

    But the anger from the leave side would also be understandable.

    Either way I'm not gonna blame either side, this is an incredibly difficult choice for the UK Parliament to make.

    But yeah as mentioned above, the lib dems certainly aren't bountiful in terms of MP numbers...
    Who on Earth do you think you are, coming on TSR and giving a measured, impartial, calm response to a question about the EU?!

    Next thing you know we'll be having good-natured discussions on the role of feminism in 21st century Britain.

    Honestly I dunno, probably protest for their resignations/arrests.

    As for the rest of the Leave support, honestly the thought makes me quite angry, so if chaos kicks off and there's rioting and worse, that's totally on those MP's for trying to block the democratic will of the country.

    FYI also I'm a LibDem voter so if the party wants to lose what little support it has left go ahead, because if they do that then they have no right to call themselves democrats.

    I'll name them for what they are. Fascists.
    Well said. People are now sharing photos on previous referendums in other countries that have had revotes. Frankly disgusting.

    It's the kind of act that people calling for should be ashamed of, maybe they have totally united families on this issue(and could that be correlated with indoctrination and authoritarianism?)but it could split mine and many others into divisions and hate for good. I would have to take political action because I would feel so betrayed and enraged, and I would also feel like my parents may in someway approve and be pleased about it.
    In fact, my Dad already thinks Sturgeon is within her rights with maybe trying to force Scotland to keep is in, much to my polite irritation. On that note, I think the English would start, en masse, demanding that the Scots leave the union and funding independence campaigns if that happened.

    Indeed. My sister is rabidly pro-EU, I am the total opposite. It would tear society apart. And yes, if there was a forced revote, I would take political action and would be perfectly understanding of people who vote for more extreme options.

    Yup. The fear mongering was totally irresponsible, as was Cameron just buggering off. . People said he had a sense of great duty, oh well..
    But this wanting to override the clear will of people would take the biscuit and prove that they don't care about this country only their own meglomania.
    I think there would be a united front, mass strikes for indefinite periods, who knows? The vote has already been pushed further in the direction of remain than the true picture, with Jo Coxs death, so many people who admit they were 'intimidated' into remaining against what they wanted inwardly. The outward social pressure was far more, and the registration deadline thing extending possibly added to remain too.

    What with Sturgeon saying this, and maybe London also advocating it, the English vote would go through the roof, swinging to Leave, the divisions between London and Scotland and England even wider. Because all remain would have is more fear, leave already won on long term and optimism. There could even be further referendums in Europe coming soon. And what with Farage sidelined, and Labour still blinkered about their electoral problem and infighting, UKIP support in England would also skyrocket. I think people who come over as more dutiful and stabilizing will win the day though and begin steering us to independence, and these people will eventually just have to concede they have made dicks of themselves. If the worst case scenario happened, and they even had to rig it or something, or try and get younger voters, imagine the lack of support behind them as they tried to go on, from leavers and also from people who didn't feel so strongly either way, but respect democratic principles. Chaos.

    I'd be delighted tbh. I'd quite like all the lies of the Leave campaign (and Remain campaign) to be exposed, so the people can perhaps understand that putting it up for MP debate is a more sensible option. Many Leavers did vote on the basis of immigration, and if we want freedom to the single market, we'll have to accept the free movement of people. Those voters are still living in La La land if they haven't caught on to that yet. Boris lied, Gove lied.

    But hey, putting your hands up and admitting you lied requires balls, which Gove and Boris don't have. I'm not expecting much from this week.

    It's not really Juncker's fault though. It's the fault of some nasty, destructive Little Englanders that decided to lash out at the rest of the world instead of blaming their own government.

    The Lib Dems alone cannot block it. However, if enough MPs from across all the parties form a majority, then yes they could block it. I would rejoice tbh; I know it's undemocratic but I know the public made the wrong choice.
    You know the public made the wrong choice? How arrogant can you get? You do not and cannot know anything, none of us can. Period.

    Here come the Leave campaigners shouting "FFS IT'S DEMOCRACY WE VOTED 2 LEAVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!1!!1! " ....
    I would rather that than the ridiculous amount of hate, childishness and ageism coming from the Remain camp these last few days

    (Original post by RDKGames)
    I'd have my faith restored in the British people if that happened.
    Except it is not the will nor doing of the British people. It is the doing of MPs blocking a result made by the British people.

    Um, no. Leave won by a majority. A majority of around one million. If some Remain supporters couldn't be bothered to get off their arses to the local church then tough titties I'm afraid. The argument that the intention was there has no legitimacy.
