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

Remind me again who changed their minds over the Treaty of Nice, and the Treaty of Lisbon?
...and what is the problem with that? The Lisbon vote changed due to a combination of certain assurances being given to the Irish government plus an electorate mature enough to think about the consequences of the initial rejection. Given that the rejection was relatively close (47:53) and the approval decisive (67:33) seems to me to have been a valid process. Similar story with Nice.

All in all a very strong justification for the UK to have a fresh referendum on the EU.
