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

So it looks now as if the PM will have to fight a vote of no confidence. Incredible that she'll even contest it, more incredible is that she'll likely survive it. That's the crux of the problem, 70% of Tory voters and 52% of the population voted to leave the EU, yet Parliament and the Tory party is made up in the (vast) majority of Remainers. Makes a mockery of representative democracy and has played its part in wrecking Brexit.
Not really when every current indication is that a significant number have changed their minds since.

What you also refuse to acknowledge is that even of the 52% wanting Brexit, only about half wanted a hard Brexit. The rest (and yes, this has been polled) would prefer to remain rather than a hard Brexit.

Fun was that no-one ever bothered to explain to them was that a soft Brexit with free trade but no cost simply wasn't ever going to happen
