Actually people do retake exams. Maybe not the day after, nor "a million times" but it was a poor analogy nonetheless.

A further vote on the complexities of a seismic political event is not really an unreasonable development, nor can it be compared to resitting an exam. Unless, of course, you want to illustrate that something can be improved upon at a subsequent attempt?
I guess I gotta spell out the analogy. Sore losers will not be allowed to resit. There are legit excuses. A momentary laps of...whatever, isn't one of the accepted medical certificates. To call the majority of voting population momentarily inept or incapable isn't very kind. Imho, people voted consciously and wellwishing, it should be honored.

It would be a shame to try to discredit a political system that seems to be to be better quality to than the US one, just because of the (to some unpalatable) result of one referendum.

Thicker skin and more autonomy is what the UK seems to need, imho. You can only get it by honoring people's wishes and forcing the system to adapt. The vote needs to stay respected, the next time people might think differently before they vote.

A friend of a failed Matu candidate, will study 10x more, of course. Will not waste resources to try to figure out excuses.
