I think this type of blog and similar ones on the remain side are simplistic to the point of being puerile. Around 33 million people voted. Each one had their own reasons for voting the way they did. Similarly there are 650 MPs in the House of Commons, each with their own ideas. Some certainly want a second referendum because they think it will result in a remain win. Some genuinely believe the deal on offer is so different from that promoted by leave before the first referendum that people should be given a second say. As a specific example if you were a Welsh sheep farmer who disliked the EU and you believed the leave claim that the UK could continue to trade exactly like being a member why wouldn't you vote to leave. Now you know you are going to face tariffs that will destroy your business perhaps your opinion will have changed. Some want a second referendum because they think a general election will not resolve the issue, either because they think it will lead to a hung Parliament or because the issue of Brexit will be mixed up all the other issues that concern people. If you want to leave but you like other Lib Dem policies who do you vote for? Or you want to remain but you like other Conservative policies?
This persistent trend of classifying everybody the same, on either side, is idiotic.
I wasn’t making any sort of point with the link I provided, I was simply replying to a poster who hadn’t heard the people’s vote had gone into meltdown. Maybe I should have sought out a different link.
