O please lets do that. Revoke, rethink and re- refer.

YES grin

I’m a firm remainer. But 6 million is nothing. The petition has been everywhere this week on social media. I’ve had countless emails from friends about it.

Not even half of the remainers have signed it so no I don’t think we should.

No.. It comes nowhere near close to original either leave or remain votes

jane1956 Sun 31-Mar-19 14:21:03

17 MILLION + voted LEAVE

Not until it reaches above 17.5 million.

Rather amusingly, a columnist in today's Sun thinks that, as No Deal is off the table, we should revoke A50! The Sun!

How many people are eligible to vote?

Chloemol Sun 31-Mar-19 14:28:48

Still not the original 17m though so no

Admittedly, also in The Sun is anger directed at the 'purist' Brexiteers in the ERG who voted against May's Deal as it would deliver Brexit, but not the hard one they wanted, fearing that voting TM down over and over might lead to Revoking A50, so that reporter wants TM's soft Brexit.

It must be so hard if you're a Sun reader, deciphering exactly what today's Group Think is! 😂

So let's put it to the people then shall we?

17.5 million!!

We've had a referendum and the majority vote was to leave. We should leave, otherwise the principles of democracy will not be upheld.

BanjoStarz Sun 31-Mar-19 14:38:56

We had a referendum in 1975 and majority vote was to stay...I guess if we keep getting to ask the same question then we might as well call it best of 3?

Goldmandra Sun 31-Mar-19 14:42:38

The principles of democracy are way mor complicated than that.

The situation we are now in bears no resemblance to what people thought they were voting for. This chaos couldn't have been predicted by the vast majority of voters.

Therefore we should revoke article 50 and only revisit the idea of a referendum if there is a choice between remaining and a deal that has already been negotiated. That way everyone will have a better understanding of what they are voting for.

RickOShay Sun 31-Mar-19 14:45:42

thought the referendum was advisory only?

longwayoff Sun 31-Mar-19 14:50:49

Slazenger if 6million is nothing how much less than nothing is your majority of 1.5 million? Will of the people!

This is because remainers have been in charge of leaving, which is lunacy. The fact that the idiots have made a mess of things, doesn't mean that we should now stay.

TheIncredibleBookEatingManchot Sun 31-Mar-19 14:53:27

I think it should be revoked.

The government listened to "the will of the people" and have spent two years trying to make it happen. No one can say the results of the referendum were ignored.

The government have a responsibility to act in the best interests of the UK. They should not keep plunging ahead with something that could cause long term damage, just because people who were lied to said they wanted it.
