I personally, want a second referendum on brexit because when/ if the UK make it official that we left the EU, I think it will affect us for the worse more than people may think.
However, I wanted to see other people's opinions on this...

I can see the sense in having one before accepting the final deal because it might be crap.

Yes, people should have a say when the full facts are known i.e. how bad the exit deal will be as opposed to being blindly lead down a path by the government with no popular mandate.

Yes. Both sides should have the bravado to put their money where there mouth is. If they lack that then they lack belief or faith in their argument.

I think we should get a full plan drawn up and then have a second referendum to vote whether the public would like that plan or to stay in the EU

Yea sure let’s have a referendum on the deal, I’m sure the eu will give us the best deal they can for us to vote on.


That’s sarcasm

As well as the strategic madness of a second referendum, I expect Leave would simply win again - possibly by a larger margin, and with even more divisiveness than before.

I'm frankly sick of referendums.

The EU should not exist.

People are forgetting that Brexit is happening because the majority of people wanted it to happen and voted accordingly... It’s like Trump’s victory - people should just accept that that’s what most people want

I'm not sure 'fault' is something you can really apply to what I said? Neither is it relevant to my point.

If there was another referendum and the remainders win do we have another and it's the best out of three?

If we don't like the next general election result should we have another again have the best out of three?

Well most of them chose not to vote. so using it as an argument for there needing to be a 2nd vote is pretty redundant

Seeing as I didnt use that as an argument for a second referendum i'm not sure what your whining about? I simply told the other poster she was factually incorrect to say more people voted to leave.

Not necessarily true, 1 million people regret their EU decision and this would be the difference between leave and remain

I think yes, referendums are expensive, the EU ref cost £142 million, but a counter-ref would still be worth it as its such a revolutionary act. Plus I’m sure the government can dig up £100 million if they could give £1 billion to the DUP

No, we can’t just call a referendum when we don’t like the outcome. We already look like pricks, if we went through all this just to be like “actually m8, think we’ll stay in the EU ta” and run off with our tail between our legs, we’ll be SUPER pricks.

We made a decision, we need to stick to it and focus on getting the best deal possible rather than being throwing our toys out the pram.
