It is not about what they want. It is about what the people want. And what the people want has not been implemented as yet.

Why does there need to be a second vote just because some people don't like the result of the first?
Surely the result of the first has to actually be implemented and a decade or generation or so pass before there can even be talk of a second vote?

If not why does a second vote annul the result of the first? If you're going to have a second vote, what happens when then the other side complain and demand a third vote and so it would go on and on...? Meaning the side that wants to stay in, at least medium-term, get their own way because in the meantime we'd still be in the EU whilst the votes go on and on...
We have general elections every four years, or more often, when it is possible to completely change the Government so annulling the result of the previous vote. This destroys your proposal of waiting a decade or a generation.

"why does a second vote annul the result of the first" see my comment above about general elections.
