"Do you realise that your sentence contradicts itself?"
I have little doubt that Steve meant it should not have been called in the manner it was
t has more or less been admitted that there was no plan for leaving when the proposal to do so was put forward - even most of the Tory press condemned this as utter stupidity
This left the voters to rely on things like THIS AND LITTLE ELSE
Turning one section of the population against another is as undemocratic as it gets and it verges on illegality.

As the poster shows a line of people somewhere in Eastern Europe, it is a blatant lie - I cannot remember a remainer argument which any where near approaches that level of hate-filled dishonesty
One of the first effects of this was a spike in racist incidents which took them to the highest level ever - they continue
Feel free to produce an example
The nonsensical claims about the damage that was being done and will be done continues
Britain is now facing loss of industries and trade which would not have occurred had Britain decided to remain

I don't agree with Steve's view of referenda - they have transformed Ireland and have brought about rights that would never have been given otherwise
I certainly don't agree with the dishonestly dangerous way this one has been carried out, but knowing what we know now I believe the people have a right to revisit the mess and have a say in what should happen
Even if there is a General Election and a decent party wins, whoever is elected is going to have to mop up this appalling mess and we know your lot are only capable of standing on the sidelines jeering
You have sunk Britain - god save us from Patriots
