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

i think that this is actually the least democratic option as you overrule the result of a referendum.
Are you saying that a General Election every 5 years (or less) is not democratic?

I would say the average voter is much better informed now than then. Seeing as the majority then was so small (and the turnout so low) it makes sense to repose the question, or to seek public endorsement of the deal that (may be) eventually reached by HMG.

If HMG cannot reach an agreement by January then the people should be asked if they prefer remain or leave without an agreement.
