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

Precisely the reason it shouldn't have gone to a referendum in the first place.

Sticking an arbitrary "YES" or "NO" option in front of the population is a damning indictment that the government was clueless from the very beginning and never seriously considered a "NO" vote.

Project Leave saw an opportunity for a power grab at any cost and the rest is history.
Of course it was correct it went to referendum. Or should the UK never have had the option of leaving the EU ever? Do you think the same about the Scottish Independence referendum?

The first referendum was straightforward and binary, Leave or Remain. Any referendum on whatever deal won't be so simple. Can you imagine it? "Do you accept the deal negotiated by her Majesty's Government for exiting the European Union?"
  • Yes
  • No
  • If No shall we...?
    1. Leave with no deal
    2. Return to negotiations
    3. Change our negotiating guidelines
    4. ...

The list is endless, and this is even before the EU have had their say.
