Why is it ....on a large scale, we are a democratic national. England,Northern Ireland,Scotland,Wales. We vote for something and the majority win. We accept it and move on.
Yet when it comes to things like referendums, like the EU referendum or Scottish polls to leave or stay...people keep demanding again.
We voted leave, yet people demand another vote...but if we were to vote again and we voted out again would the remainers demand another vote ....until they got the answer they wanted? If the remaining side did get vote stay then it would change. I guarantee they would not allow a 3rd vote to leave....it would be 1 rule for them another rule for everyone else. Same with Scotland they have asked if they wanted to stay or go, they said stay....yet that nutty woman keeps pushing for a vote.
...I thought we were a democracy
...yet they seem to forget this. When primeministers get voted in and we don't want them in,....why does noone else ask for another vote? May can now be forced out of office by the public....yet she remains. People seem dumb....
I just don't get it...
This has been done to death here, read a few threads.
Well of course people do moan about it and say things like 'how come we've got a tory PM when most people didn't vote tory'
they're just being drowned out by the brexit uproar.
Well, it's also because they're assuming that EVERYONE in the country wants the same thing, which is to leave, even though the vote was 51% to 49%. That's what half the country wants without even considering what the other half wants. With a chance of a no-deal brexit, it's pretty much saying "f you" to all of those who voted to remain.
51% of the vote might be the majority, but it's not democracy. Democracy is "the belief in freedom and equality between people, or a system of government based on this belief, in which power is either held by elected representatives or directly by the people themselves", but there's hardly any equality towards remainers at the moment.
And with all the crap that's been going on, and with nobody getting anywhere, with May rushing a deal and it not being accepted, Brexit should not continue in the state that it's at.
A no-deal Brexit should also be out of the question. Everyone saying "LEAVE, just LEAVE already" is not considering what this will do to the country. All EU trades to the UK will end. UK citizens will need a visa to go anywhere in the EU. It will be a very tough few years if this is what happens. The UK is NOT strong enough to stand on its own like Switzerland or Norway, they are not ready to be an independent country and the ONLY way that Brexit will work is if they have way more time to come up with a solid plan - they haven't delivered so far. What makes you think they'll deliver in less than 2 months now?
I know Alot of ppl who voted stay wasn't sure and dint know what to do and the BBC and news advised to stay so they did...says it all
Left wings news brainwashing people.

There is a subtle hope among remainers that another vote would keep the UK in the EU, but what happens if the second vote is for Brexit? Do we have a third vote? It is ridiculous.
Also, should Scotland have a second vote after the SNP lost the first one?
This is really silly.
Nope and nope... if leave win second time around, we get what we deserve. At least we went in eyes open.

I think that much of the issue with Brexit is how close it was, however I 100% agree that it would be stupid to have another referendum. Perhaps if/when the final deal is agreed, a referendum on whether to leave on those terms, or with no deal, would make sense, but if we have a second in/out vote then I believe it would be extremely damaging to the integrity of UK politics.
People need to accept the result and move on. (Unfortunately) we are leaving, and should now focus on damage limitation rather than wishful thinking.
