You can dress it up how you want mate. The conditions of the vote were printed on the ballot paper. People had their voices heard. Get over it.
The only one dressing it up is YOU. Every democracy has a right to change its mind. You want to argue it, fine, but then you do it on the facts - legally referenda are advisory in the U.K. because they have a sovereign parliament (fact). The consequences of a sovereign parliament is that they can fully commit the country to any international agreement they wish, as they have done for the past 40 years (fact). There is nothing preventing the next parliament from reversing the current decisions on BREXIT or anything else if they believe it is the wishes of the voters (fact).
