Why are leavers so oposed to this? Niw that they now all the facts and how great Brexit is going to be surely they are more confident?

A 2nd Referendum on 21:20 - Dec 3 by Catullus

I had the misplaced belief that our politicsl classes would enact the will of the people. What I didn't foresee was that a majority of politicians with the help of some remainers of various guises would so effectively undermine the process that an entirely rubbish deal would be the outcome, entirely rubbish of course being a massive understatement.
Make no mistake about it, this is a massive blow to democracy. Why bother voting when afterwards the will of the people is taken as a thing to be ignored, manipulated and then, when the deal is done claim it's what the people voted for?
I still believe the EU is undemocratic and Verhofstadts speech signals their future intentions. I hope the future I imagine doesn't come about because the thing that Europhiles love to claim (that the EU has kept the peace in Europe) could end up being the opposite of the truth. I forsee civil unrest as anti EU sentiment becomes more powerful. I foresee the Franco/German political alliance causing problems, especially when the EU army is formed. I foresee the NHS being privatised and I don't foresee the UK gaining anything like the benefits that Germany has grasped from all of this. We're more likely to see the end of a state pension than a massive rise in it and industry will continue to be sucked out of our country to be replaced with dead end jobs.
Ultimately I can only hope that all of that doesn't come to pass and the fears of many leavers prove entirely unfounded.
However faced with a change of mind where leaving is still a possibility or accepting a deal where we may never be allowed to leave, what choice do I have? No deal is bad for everyone and I'd suggest, not just Europe. It could destabilise the Western democracies and embolden the Russians and Chinese.
In simple terms we are between a rock and a hard place but at least the hard place has an escape pod.


They are enacting the will of the people. The problem is, and always has been, that the referendum question was flawed.

That is not necessarily correct. The Scots will have another vote for independence.

In fact, if the vote to leave had been narrowly finished the other way then that movement may have gathered momentum if it was that truly desired. As time has passed it has shown that the vote was not exactly covered in glory or truths on either side but it has shown there are very many who have said they would not have voted the way they did.

As an Economist I am more concerned about how the nation may well suffer.

That's exactly what it asked stay or leave!!

What should have happened (in my obviously uneducated opinion) was Cameron should have had a pre- negotiation referendum and said we can choose to remain or leave....or go back and negotiate again but if unsuccesful then leave.
If we had chosen leave he would have gone to talks wth a mandate that the EU wouldn't want to ignore. In the meantime his 'experts' could have started on a plan for brexit. We wouldn't be in this mess now, possibly!
It might have helped him if he'd had a better idea of what the British people wanted because he seemed clueless.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

farage could have kept on shouting but we would never have had another referendum and you know it. The establishment would never have taken the chance again, not unless remain won by a massive margin anyway.

How about those who campaigned for leave, like Davis and Fox, having some sort of coherent plan to implement leaving?

You really think that?

She's going for an orderly Brexit. Her backstop is purely there to be implemented if the UK and EU haven't finalised a future trading agreement after the transition period. If you bothered to read Camerons booklet, after the bit you took as gospel (once in a generation vote), it said that a Canada style deal could take up to 7 years. TM's solution is to stop people losing jobs whilst this gets negotiated.

Leavers conspiracies seem to be the final hurdle for Brexit to actually happen.

No deal won't happen now.

This deal won’t happen. No deal won’t happen. There is no chance of another deal. It is utterly inevitable that the 2016 vote will be ignored and overturned. There has been no genuine attempt to leave the European Union as everybody involved are hardcore europhiles and members of bolder beef.

This deal will be voted down.

No deal will happen as can't see negotiations coming up with anything better.

No second referendum which would be loaded in favour of remain; people seem to want options like Remain, Leave ( Norway ), Leave ( Canada ), Leave ( No deal ) etc. That simply fragments the Leave vote meaning Remain will in - after all, only one type Remain, loads of Leave options...

In one way, I'd welcome ref2 but I'm not sure if that the decision of our ongoing relationship with or without the EU should rest with the people (it shouldn't have done in the first place imo).

Am I right in thinking that Oarliament itself can take the decision?

Yes, of course this flies in the face of democracy (as indeed does a ref2) but this situation we have found ourselves needs extraordinary measures for the best of our country going forward.

I don't think Parliamentary sovereignty flies in the face of democracy. It is our democracy and is what leavers have been saying they want restored.

Guess what, we always had it.
