For me? I'd flatly vote No Deal.

Would others vote to stay in the EU or agree to Teresa May's deal?

Everyone I know who voted Leave would still vote Leave (the same goes for those who voted Remain) so I'd be really curious to see what the outcome of a 2nd referendum would generate.

Remain without a doubt. The EU isn't perfect but it's easier to affect change from within.

In the unlikely event we get a second vote it would be "shit deal" or "no deal ". Remain wouldn't be an option.

So @bellinisurge would you vote "shit deal" or "no deal"?

Dear god we’re currently in the shit in a boat full of holes.

bellinisurge Fri 09-Nov-18 19:49:53

@millsbynight I'd vote shit Deal because no deal would be a national catastrophe.

Everyone you know hasn't changed their mind the Channel 4 poll suggest otherwise. Even if no one changed their mind demographics support remain.

I think remain would have to be on the ballot paper.

I voted leave ( I didn’t know the proper facts I’m ashamed to say) I would now vote remain

Thank yoj for admitting your mistake

Ideally remain but if it was no deal or shit deal I'd for for shit deal.
Am intrigued by Jo Johnson's resignation today. Second referendum that tiny bit closer.
If TM can't get her shit deal through parliament then I am hoping the momentum for a 2nd ref will snowball rapidly.

remain, absolutely remain.

I'd vote no deal just I wanted originally. If remain was an option on the ballot and won I would assume the EU would want to renegotiate would those of you who say remain expect or want a vote on those new terms too?

Theworldisfullofgs Fri 09-Nov-18 20:43:46

Why no deal.
Would you really want to operate on wto terms?

Moussemoose Fri 09-Nov-18 20:45:51

If we remain we remain on the terms we have now.

If we leave a seek to rejoin we would have to renegotiate new terms.

One of the many reasons remain is the obvious choice.

EthelHallowsBroomstick Fri 09-Nov-18 20:48:34

Remain without a doubt, as I voted originally.

Why would you vote no deal?! Can you give us 5 good reasons why? Do you honestly think that would benefit the UK in one year, five years, ten years?

It was not a mistake to vote leave. It’s perfectly fine to believe that not being in the eu is a valid choice. What is not okay is the absolute incompetence that this has been handled with. Nobody could have predicted this shitstorm when voting leave. It’s not the concept, it’s the delivery.

woman11017 Fri 09-Nov-18 20:50:33

No deal requires no vote.

It will happen automatically when May's 'deal' is rejected.

IheartNiles Fri 09-Nov-18 21:04:46

I was a reluctant remainer as I knew that the delivery would be incompetent and hijacked by the extremists. If I had another vote I’d like to opt for a Norway EEA option.

{ It’s not the concept, it’s the delivery.}
Indeed, but worse, the Tories were working on the premise that they had an empire and that they could simply go 'overseas' and steal resources or 'eliminate' indigenous people who might stop them taking resources.
The bad news is that the world has moved on in the last 150 years, thus killing off the idea that the UK would be a manufacturing powerhouse as I think was promised, along with some unicorns.

Remain- lead the most powerful trading bloc from the front- if we can produce some talented decent statespersons to do so.

Singletomingle Fri 09-Nov-18 21:23:00

I'll give you 3 reasons for no deal firstly any deal will hinder our deals outside the EU secondly we deal with most of the world without a deal with no issues! Lastly the EU is failing our withdrawal will only speed this up and the more distance we can put between them and us the better.

Sorry but it was totally predictable, it is simply impossible to roll back 45 years of EU membership and all that entails in 2 years whilst at the same time replace all the FTA's, rules and memberships of numerous bodies too.
Especially when you ve 27 separate and independent countries to appease as you do this marvel of diplomacy.

May/UK Gov should have triggered art 50 after 5 years of meticulous preparation.

Bearbehind Fri 09-Nov-18 21:24:41

single could you give us an example of a deal outside the EU we would like and couldn’t do before?

MemoryOfSleep Fri 09-Nov-18 21:27:49

No deal, out of the two.
