    be an absolute catastrophe. The leavers were only having a laugh anyway. Even Berni accepts we can't really leave.

    You wrongly assume I am pro-Brexit

    QUOTE=Luis Anaconda;4173124]Yes "want" is possibly the wrong word. Though, while I would understand why the you can't just have referendums willy-nilly, it's very interesting that people like Monty who evoke the whole "it's the will of the people" meme, are absolutely terrified that that the will of people in August 2017 might be sufficiently different to that of June 2016, to reverse the decision. Funny old game democracy[/QUOTE]

    Were they having a laugh at the General Election too, when 84% of them voted for pro-leave parties?

    84% of them voted for the two main parties, just as they have in every election in british history. That tells you precisely nothing, particularly as neither party was pro-leave at the previous election or the referendum itself.

    They both undertook to honour the referendum- that is all. If you think the option of voting for the hopelessly disgraced Lib Dems was a realistic one for a remain voter you really don't understand how british politics works.

    "That is all"

    Yeah, just a tiny manifesto pledge. Should have been in the small print, really.

    There is a difference between 'pro-leave' and honouring the referendum. Can you not see that?

    If they were both pro-leave why would there be any problem with the tiny majority? The Labour Party is not pro-leave and never has been.

    Its leader was, though, for decades all the way up to last June. Feckin turncoat.

    But if the parties are both for honouring the result of the referendum, even if through gritted teeth, and as the MPS almost unanimously were when they voted, they should all get on with it make the best of it rather than continuing the project fear in the hope that the process can somehow be stopped.

    It seems that many remainers desperately want this to be true, and hope that if they keep repeating it it will come true, rather than using their energies to work out the best future outside the EU.

    The best future outside the EU probably involves the EU no longer existing. So those most committed to it should focus on destroying it.

    Funny old game etc

    They will....I think. The bigger test for Labour would be if they actually won an election. Corbyn would face tremendous pressure from his parliamentary party to consider a second referendum.
