Those were the rules on the day of the referendum, which we all had to adhere to. One vote either way would have given a result of leave or stay and I'm pretty sure had the result have gone the other way we would not be debating about it now. Personally I think a simple majority is fine by me, if one side has to get many more votes than the other side, it seems a tad unfair to me, but that is only my opinion. 

As for calling for a re-run, if a simple leave or remain question is too complicated for the electorate, would it be fair to say that a document of 500 pages might be a little bit harder for the electorate to understand.

I don't think it matters who lied the most, a lie is a lie. Politicians are still economical with the truth.

There was also a rule on the day of the referendum that it was only advisory

Why don't you tell us then? We know what you don't want, what do you want?

 

I asked several days ago if any Brexiters could tell me what they, themselves, personally expected to Benefit from Brexit? No responses.

 

Not only do selfish Brexiters not give a damn about others, they have no idea what they want! How dumb is that? It's purely tribal.

Given as I have heard so many different stories from those who voted Brexit why they did, clearly they are not singing from the same hymn sheet. no wonder we can not sort it, look at were we are now after nearly 3 years, in rowing boat, without a paddle, and we are going to go over Viagara Falls in 46 days time. and the skipper say trust me...

 

Need to tie her up and use her as an anchor...

For those who wonder what might happen in the next six weeks, read this thread 

 

 

 

TL:DR

 

The longer we delay: 

 

We are getting ourselves into a weaker and weaker position.

 

We have the brewings of several constitutional crises

Why would anyone want to use this figure of "17.4 of 66 million = 26.4%" when it also includes people like babies, young children and teenagers under the age of 18. There are about 20 million of the population that are illegible to vote. Would it not be less confusing if you just used the appropiate figures of the actual voters.

What do you mean? Their crosses can not be read?

Is it time to move on tebee, the referendum took place going on 3 years ago, we have been down this road so many times the cobbles are getting worn away. You and the rest of the remainers that are chanting the same old mantra everytime they post is not going to change anything, can't we just admit that the government gave the public a choice of remain or leave, they promised to impliment that choice that they voted for. It has happened, there is no going back, we are at another chapter in the Brexit book. What satisfaction do you and your fellow reminiscers get by keep bringing it up, it is history. Nothing you say will change it, so again please move on. Advisory or not, it is happening.

Can’t take a hint, maybe nobody wants to play with you? Or they could have all hit the ‘ignore’ button.

Not only do selfish BrexitYers not give a damn about others, they have no idea what they want! How dumb is that? It's purely tribal.

You've clearly missed the things we don't want from the eu - namely (admittedly in my IMO) freedom of movement/way too wasteful and expensive govt. etc. etc.

 

As a 'relatively' wealthy brexiteer - I care far more  about the poorest in society, whose wages are being kept as low as possible due to the influx of eu citizens from far poorer eu countries.

Giving damns all day, every day. Saving our children and our children’s children from the yoke of EU federalisation and Remainer capitulation.
You know it makes sense.

Equally  you will have to admit there is no legal obstacle to us not leaving the EU  If the government rescind art 50 before 29/3 the will face no legal consequences, though there may be political ones..

 

If, however they leave without a deal, they will have broken the GFA which is legal obligation.

 

It will be interesting to see what they chose.
