    Majority that voted.
    52%
    Another vote wouldn’t go the way Remainers wished.
    Three years is a long time to ignore the majority.

    No. It had to be acted upon by government. “Advisory” just wouldn’t be accepted.

    But what about the 48%, it was a slim majority and the rest should not be ignored.

    That’s the problem with referendums, they are a dangerous tool.

    Would it be right for our MPs to bring back the death penalty on a referendum result or remove democracy and return us to a monarchy. Populist policies can be very very dangerous and Hitler was a good example of that.

    I had a look and discovered the petition runs to the 20th August.
    And all to try to raise a debate in Westminister.
    Well that is going to do a lot!!
    I wish those that sign the petition the best of luck, given that Westminster are still debating Brexit for years. :p

    72% of the electorate turned out and 52% voted leave so maybe 37% of the electorate voted leave in an election so corrupt that it would would have been overturned had it not only been advisory and being carried out by a minority government that is only in power because they bribed the DUP with £2 000 000 000.00 of taxpayer money.

    Personally I think the referendum should have been erased the moment foreign money was linked to vote leave.

    Our democracy has been hijacked by some very powerful people. I just wonder what they planned post Brexit.

    We do not have a real democracy in this country.We have an unelected house of lords and an unelected monarchy,while we still have them we are not a democracy.
    We also at the moment have the elected mp's who are being treasonous and going against a democratic vote.

    You really think the UK would vote again to Leave.

    Just the elderly people who have shuffled off will have seen to it being a certain Remain victory.

    Selling the country short and missing the new EU rules on tax avoidance which are about to come in.

    The people wanted out of EU.
    Even masses of the Remainers only voted that way due solely to economic fears (some driven by spin stories).

    Here we go again with the treason garbage.

    But a referendum isn’t democratic if the argument is polluted with lies and by our rules broken. It was funded by outside organisations to influence our vote.

    The bitter Brexiteers are like a stuck record at present.

    Stomping around having a tantrum because "their Brexit" (whatever that is) isn't being delivered.

    It’s time for election, I’m sick of austerity anyway. My daughters school can no longer afford to open 5 days a week, they have to close on Friday because of lack of funding. No books, buildings full of asbestos and fall into disrepair. This government is national disgrace and fixated with the constitution while the working classes pay taxes and get told to put up with it.

    You have nearly a full house on Brexit bingo tonight.

    Just a casual doubting of Gina Millers Britishness and you will win a romantic dinner at a Wetherspoons and a accidentally booked double room at the Travelodge with Liam Fox
