Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Farage maybe starting to lean this way because:
  1. Despite what marton, Sandgrounder and Odile say, Leave will very likely win. Again.
  2. A second referendum would split the Tory party, perhaps for good
  3. For those in the UK who don't seem to grasp referendums, it would put the issue to bed once and for all
  4. Another Leave win would be seen as a mandate for a hard Brexit
  5. Farage is probably bored and his ego needs some attention. A second referendum would make him "the man" for a short space of time again

He learnt nothing with Barnier. Barnier has not yet been given his marching orders from the EU Commission for the next round of negotiations. This is just Farage playing games. Whilst Theresa May remains PM, this will almost certainly not happen as she'd be toast. How could she campaign for either side in a second referendum without appearing hypocritical?
When did I ever post that Remain would win a second Referendum?

I do believe Brexit is a crap idea but if people want to vote for it and take the consequences then "good luck".
