At number four, Brexiteers didn't know what they were voting for.

At number five, Soft/Hard Brexit

At number six, It was written on the side of a bus. (Many peoples favourite I'm sure)

OK. You take Lancaster and I'll have the B52.

Well I suppose a B52 is better than a P45 which is what many people will be getting if we have a no deal Brexit.

You mean re-unite it after being shattered by Camerons Folly?

 

It was him that took us into "uncharted waters"

 

Not since Charles the First raised his standard at Nottingham has anyone caused such a disturbance among the good people of the realm.

 

 

And they loved him for it with a majority out vote!

Democracy is the will of the majority and it appears that the majority of Brits now don't want to leave the EU because they better understand the full implications of leaving . 
Says who?

Estimated? You don't know exactly?

That's roughly estimated. Brexit has greatly weakened the EU and Europe as a whole. The economic uncertainty has the UK + EU monetary currencies brought significant losses by international comparison. This is a thaiforum.

Just look at the currency development since june 2016 compared to thai baht. Hooray or what?

You mean like: "nobody can know what happens if you jump off the cliff until you hit the rocks below?"
No, I don't mean like that. Believing that leaving the EU is akin to jumping off a cliff or even more ridiculously dramatically, "dying", is to hold a very low opinion of Britain that I don't share.

Even though I disagree with your assessment of the consequences of Brexit (I believe if managed correctly it could be hugely positive for the UK), I admire your honesty in admitting that you're not that bothered about Democracy.

 

It's much better than the Remainers who are trying to claim that ignoring the results of the Referendum is actually really democratic. All this "democracy is a moving process", "how can more votes be less democratic", "people's vote" nonsense really grates after a while.

 

Kudos for admitting you just want to Remain at all costs and since you lost the vote, to hell with Democracy.

If twisting my words to attach convenient labels suits you so be it. I proffered a provocative view that democracy is not all its cracked to be meaning that if it is relegated to a non-living set of rigid tenets that do not allow for rapidly changing circumstances it is not workable. The Brexit experience was characterized by clumsy execution and imperfect knowledge. Today we are in possession of more knowledge, and should not be shackled by a referendum that may have been been made obsolete, especially if it means a hard landing.

 

It's easy to take the temperature of the public again with another confirmatory referendum to ensure that's what the public want now, because circumstances have changed, Brexit execution was a disaster, and a hard brexit is worse than no brexit. There is nothing undemocratic about any of this, though it does not serve the function of freezing in time the 2 year old results the brexiters want to achieve, without accounting for changes in the intervening period. That doesn't sound like true democracy to me.

Would that only apply to the 17 million people who voted to leave, or to the 15 million people who voted to remain or to the other 10 or 11 million people who couldn't be bothered to vote in the first place?

Before the referendum, all the polls showed "Remain" winning. I believe that remainers got complacent and many of them didn't vote. Different story next time.
