This is a genuine question , you can give an explanation or not for your choice, entirely up to you smile

My choice would be revoke, if I was considering the rest of the UK population. This does not mean that the UK can never leave the EU, but that those in charge would have to come up with solutions that were not detrimental to the majority of the population.

Since every version of Brexit involves the country becoming poorer revoke. But I've always been a remainer. Work in the Pharma industry and not looking forward to the impact of Brexit.

WTO Brexit. No explanation as you say we don't need to smile (Originally voted Remain)

Revoke or even WA. I live in NI and near the border and a no deal terrifies me.

Ideal world, revoke. But that has the potential to cause riots.

Workable compromise, Labour's solution, remaining in the Customs Union, maintaining peace in NI and protecting jobs. The one the EU actually sees as workable.

Revoke, all the way (always been a remainer). I can understand people voting out of frustration - just - but I cannot understand why we would all want to carry on down a slippery slope to disaster.

Anything is better than a 29th March no-deal exit.

Revoke. All other options are irrational.

This is AIBU, not politics, please post there instead.

"Anything is better than a 29th March no-deal exit."

I thought the plan was now a May 29th exit? That's what's in discussion.

I think that even the Brexiteers in the party are accepting that we can't be ready for March.

Corbyn is finally calling for a second vote, bit late.

PCMasterRays ? but this political crisis effects all of us , every single person currently living in the UK and those UK citizens who live in EU, why do you think it needs to be squirrelled off into a separate area ?

Revoke, revoke, revoke. Everything else is stupid.

Revoke. That's my preference personally and also what I think would be best for the population as a whole.

Just ignore the thread police, OP. Some people might want to bury their heads in the sand, but this is the most important issue that the country has faced for decades. We can discuss it wherever we like!

Revoke. (Although unfortunately I cannot see a possibility of this happening) No deal would be disastrous. WA slightly less so.

Revoke then get on with sorting out housing, public services etc... the real problems that have been completely ignored and neglected during the last few years - was that actually the real reason for this complete waste of time and money?

Stick a couple of Brexiters in an office somewhere to work on a realistic, concrete plan to leave the EU with instructions not to bother us till it’s all agreed in principle and ready to be voted on again- what should have been done before the 2016 referendum.

My worst fear, apart from no deal, is that there will be an extension - more time and money diverted from the very real problems in this country today!

Revoke. It is total madness to go ahead with it.

The people I know who voted leave would all rather revoke now as well.
