    So you'd ban some of the most experienced individuals in society from voting? Men & women who have often fought for their country, paid taxes & worked their whole lives. Whereas most 16-21 year olds are still a drain on society at that point in their lives.

    Sound logic.

    Maybe we should just make euthanasia mandatory & kill off all pensioners as they're draining the NHS & care systems too?
    Paying taxes and working for a number of years does not mean that they are experienced in modern politics or know what is best for the future of the younger generation who will have to pay the consequences. Considering many of their responses to modern day issues is "Back in my day [aka in the 1950s/60s] we did this...", I highly doubt that they had the future in mind when they voted, or had any idea how the future will be affected if we leave the EU.
    My granddad for example (who strangely enough, I do not wish to kill off), voted to leave simply because he didn't like so many immigrants entering his country, and he voted to leave because of this alone. However, now we all know that immigrants are the least of our worries.

    So if we have a second referendum and the Remain campaign wins with 51.9%, will there be a 3rd referendum? A 4th? Where does it stop?
    The UK people have spoken, we are in a democracy and Brexit won (albeit not by a landslide) - accept this and move on. Both sides were deceitful, lied and fabricated statistics to get votes. It may only be a small majority, but Leave won by majority nonetheless.

    Like you disregarded my post directly above yours.

    There's nothing to say we can't have multiple referendums. And if you look at, for example, Ireland. That's exactly what happened.

    Oh and if you think the £ falling is a joke, well...

    This is not how a democracy works. You can't just make another referendum simply because you didn't get your way. Pretty childish. We have to stand together and make this work.

    I read that. I find that quite funny how if people have an opinion: stay or leave; why after voting multiple times would that change a person's opinion. If I were to vote tomorrow as I did on the 23rd, I'd vote the same thing. What difference would it make voting again?

    Because you would be voting with improved knowledge about the choice you are being asked to make, and possibly the terms of staying in/out the EU itself will have evolved.

    There's not going to be a 2nd Ref anytime soon, that's clear.

    But there could well be one in Scotland, and if so and they choose independence, AND the English/Welsh economy isn't doing quite so well, and immigration is still a "problem" and .... etc etc. Then maybe asking the question again in a year or 2 will yield a different answer.

    This particular petition is a complete red herring. It's badly worded. It's after the fact. And it won't change anything. But it's a bit of fun for Remainers and re-thinking Leavers to sign it.

    A 2nd referendum certainly isn't.

    How much more "knowledge" would i be able to have - more propaganda from both sides of the argument? i don't see that as knowledge.
    Immigration will always be a problem - people don't just come from the EU, but also from asia, the middle east too.

    Indeed to paragraph 2.

    And read the rest of my post - knowledge was just one aspect.

    Very true - I don't see the need to complain about a decision which has been fairly been made with the whole of the UK. Nor request that that decision be proposed again in order for the "expected result". I even thought the UK would stay, but hey - leave majority won. GG lol.

    Twitter has gone nuts with Brexit. The number of tweets that have called Brexiters racist is unbelievable.
