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

I've always found it at curious term this "People's Vote" that Remainers are campaigning for. As if the first vote wasn't voted for by the people

People's Vote campaign puts pressure on Labour leadership
People change their minds. Particularly when they are in possession of more, better quality, facts. Every five years (at a maximum) UK voters are given an opportunity to express their changed opinions at the ballot box.

In this case there is a deadline coming up. (October) Because of this people should be given the opportunity to confirm, or revoke, their previous votes. This is much more important than a parliamentary vote as this is a one-off. Speak now or forever hold your piece.

For Brexiters and remainers alike it would be a confirmation of the people's will.
