And Remainers? They ignore 17.4 million who voted leave.

Brexiteers also ignore what is probably a big chunk of the 17.4 million (perhaps even a majority of it if there was any way of checking.) Many who voted leave wanted a Norway-style deal, as was talked about at the time. They are ignored as well: only the hardest of Brexits or no deal is allowed) That is one of the reasons I try (in vain it must be said) to distinguish Brexiteers from those who voted leave.
