Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
I don't think anyone would doubt that if the vote in 2016 had been 52% for remain, the Brexit camp would have called for a second vote, and the Remain camp would be opposing it. That would be reasonable enough - when your side has won you'd rather not risk a rerun.

But what is hypocritical is to pretend that the reason for opposing a second vote was something to do with democratic principles, and to claim that refusing it shows that the UK is a truer democracy than Ireland, Denmark and Norway.
