McGrath of Harlow Brexit #2 (2815* d) RE: Brexit #2 08 Jan 19

The big worry about going back to the people would be that there might be a vote for a no deal Brexit. However the hostility shown by Brexiters to the very notiion is good reason to think that is unlikely. If they believed there was reason to hope for a repeat victory they'd be all for it.

The barrage of claptrap about it being a blow to democracy is hypocritical rubbish. Unfortunately an awful lot of people seem to have actually been taken in by it, including some Remainers. So if a fresh referendum votes to stay, even by a much larger margin than that of 2016, there'll be many who will see that result as illegitimate.

Strange. When an early General Election in 1917 took away from the Tories the Commons majority that had been voted in,supposedly for five years, in 2015, did anyone suggest that was cheating the electorate of 2015 and a betrayal of democracy?
