As the title says really, along with whether or not your vote would be different from last time.

ThorsMistress Wed 13-Mar-19 23:04:19

Yes I would. My vote wouldn't change from the first time.

SavageBeauty73 Wed 13-Mar-19 23:04:37

Yes. Voted remain and will again.

It's a total shit storm.

IsabelleSE19 Wed 13-Mar-19 23:05:38

Yes. Remain. Again.

GroundhogWeek Wed 13-Mar-19 23:07:17

Yes, remain again

ThierryEnnui Wed 13-Mar-19 23:08:29

Yes, I’d vote remain again.

TonightJosephine Wed 13-Mar-19 23:08:30

Yes, remain.

I'm a remainer but I find the very idea of a 2nd referendum incredibly undemocratic as it implies that rule by the majority is an insufficient condition for democratic legitimacy. I think the whole thing would be even more bitter and divisive second time around.

nutellalove Wed 13-Mar-19 23:09:41

Agree with @liviii

Lumene Wed 13-Mar-19 23:10:38

No. Remain voter. I think the result would stay the same with a new referendum.

DippyAvocado Wed 13-Mar-19 23:10:56

Yes, would vote to revoke Article 50 and remain. Democracy is not a snapshot moment in time, it evolves with circumstances and demographics.

It's true, but can it really be worse than
Brexit?
Would you vote remain again?

DrVonPatak Wed 13-Mar-19 23:13:37

Remain all the way. I live with a minuscule consolation of the knowledge that I was right from the start saying that there is currently no viable legal, economical or political instrument capable of delivering this monstrosity.

It takes on average 20 years of negotiations for a country to join, so for them to think that it was possible in 2 years was a clear sign of madness.

MinisterforCheekyFuckery Wed 13-Mar-19 23:13:54

I voted remain and would again.

Initially I was against the idea of a second referendum, even though I was gutted about the result. Have changed my mind now as there just doesn't seem to be a workable solution to the whole mess.

No. Remain voter. I think the result would stay the same with a new referendum.

Apparently, if everyone who voted last time voted in the same way remain would now win. A huge number of the elderly who voted to leave have now passed away.

I desperately hope there’s a second vote, and I’d vote remain again. But I don’t what the outcome would be and I’d be wary of campaigning. Does anyone remember the awful anti Bush Guardian campaign in 2004? I’m still cringing
It’d be like that and could massively backfire.

icannotremember Wed 13-Mar-19 23:19:22

Yes. Remain.

liviii Wed 13-Mar-19 23:21:02

Would you vote remain again?

Not a clue, I would feel incredibly inflicted. But my trust would be completely destroyed.

Dotty1970 Wed 13-Mar-19 23:22:39

Remainer and Remainer again

Wowzel Wed 13-Mar-19 23:23:12

I'd vote remain again, as would my DH.

I suspect my family would vote remain again. His would probably vote leave again

CatchingBabies Wed 13-Mar-19 23:23:16

I’d vote remain, again, but would absolutely not support a second referendum. The vote has been done and repeating it wastes money we apparently don’t have and may not make a difference to the outcome.

SisyphusDad Wed 13-Mar-19 23:23:38

Yes to a second referendum. Vote to rescind Brexit. If the current Brexit process had been even vaguely competent I would have sadly accepted it. But it hasn't so it should be ditched.

pepperpot99 Wed 13-Mar-19 23:24:04

Voted remain and would again like a shot.

liviii Wed 13-Mar-19 23:24:29

inflicted=conflicted

leccybill Wed 13-Mar-19 23:24:53

Yes, and remain again.
Hardly a representative sample here though!
