The petition for re-running the second EU referendum has reached 4 million and anti-Brexit protests have sprung up in cities so the question must be should we do it again?
I'm torn because i was on losing side of the decision and consider what we have voted for as the height of foolishness with severe consequences for us all but then again, we can't just ignore the result or re-run it just because 48% of us didn't agree with it, that's us gladly wandering into dictatorial territory.
Sure many who voted to remain in the EU are very disappointed about the result, particularly how it is dawning on us how it will hit our economy and therefore most vulnerable in our society already down after years of austerity, but there are also many people who voted leave who are regretting their decision now they are hearing of the consequences, over 1.1 million of them according to a recent poll.
Brussels have made it crystal clear that the UK must maintain free movement of labour in order to access the largest single market in the World with over 500 million potential customers, a fact that was spelt out before but dismissed by the Brexit campaign as 'fear-mongering', as was the now discredited claim of the NHS receiving the money we currently send to the EU.
Knowing now what we know, those who voted Leave could argue that they voted on mis-information but it still leaves the problem of whether it would be morally right to re-run the referendum, albeit this time with the public having a better understanding of what an exit package would mean.
The Government has a decision to make regarding what is in the national interest and to act accordingly but as we now know that the deal available outside the EU will hit the country hard, the safest way to go about things would be to gain some wiggle room which delays, and then postpones the handing over of Article 50 until which will propel us out of the EU and we then quietly forget all about it.
That way the referendum result stands, democracy prevails but we just don't do anything to enforce the result .
