I'm afraid that Brexit will continue, you can't change your mind just because things are not looking good at present.   It was the first past the post system just like it was at the General Election.

Very interesting. Apart from the fact that whilst General Elections in the UK are legal binding, the Brexit Referendum was 'advisory'.

If it's not binding then what is the point of it all.     Do the remain camp want to turn it into a lottery and make it the best out of 3 then?

Constitutionally, we don't govern by plebiscite. Any referendum is merely advisory.

Maybe, but we seem to be governed by plebs or am I mistaken?

What an utter FARCE the Brexit negotiations are.
A complete waste of time, and utterly counter productive.

Iím in a hotel in Tenerife, and Iím sick of hearing all these coffin dodgers saying that they are upset about paying more than 25% more for the same annual holiday.... when they all voted Brexit FFS!    Why couldnít they foresee this?

Itís the tip of the iceberg Ian.
The REAL problems will be seen very soon now, with availability problems in the supermarkets, and the horrendous price rises that will bring.
This is one of the main reasons we are actively looking to move from the U.K.

I don't wish to spoil the hysteria by mentioning facts but...

Looking at the chart shows that the pound was worth less against the Euro than it is today at some point of the year in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. The current value feels lower because of an unusual spike back in 2015.
