But to be fair, Prorege - even after a narrow remain win, the issue would have faded away by now

"Nobody would have questioned the validity of the vote had Remain won. "
- it's been mentioned numerous times on here how Farage said that a narrow defeat would not be the end of the matter. Here's the link:

Whilst Rees-Mogg argued “We could have two referendums. As it happens, it might make more sense to have the second referendum after the renegotiation is completed.”

I have said before, a second referendum may be the only way out of the mess parliament has got us into. A legally binding referendum may be the only way forward. Is it the best way forward, probably. Should we even have had to consider it, no, parliament shouldn't have let us down in the way it has, but they have so it may be, I think it is becoming, the only way forward out of this mess. Make it legally binding then parliament can't go against whatever result it produces. Personally I don't think you need to worry as I think it will back brexit again.

In order for a legally binding referendum to work (or to have worked if it had been done the first time round) it would be necessary to define exactly what is meant by Brexit. Since the politicians can't agree on even that, the necessary legislation wouldn't get through parliament. This is why what seemed such a simple referendum question was actually hopelessly vague and has marched us into the current mess. The only way a second referendum will enable any progress to be made is if it is to confirm whether we are happy with any deal that is proposed.

Ok....but......

The referendum in 2016 was NOT charged with defining the future relationship with Europe.
That wasn't it's remit.
The purpose of the 2016 was to define the direction of travel, which was Leave, the details of which, we were all fully aware, was TO BE NEGOTIATED.

Both sides bought in to that. - The ERG and the DUP obviously didn't. They've continuously voted down the agreement that was negotiated.

It was only when the unthinkable happened the Remainers started creating issues.
Nobody would have questioned the validity of the vote had Remain won. - it's been mentioned numerous times on here how Farage said that a narrow defeat would not be the end of the matter. Here's the link:

No you have got your focus all wrong.

I was referring to the Official Leave and Remain campaigns prior to the vote.

I can't recall too much input from the DUP prior to the vote and I don't believe the ERG were a 'thing' prior to vote.
Both came in to Brexit prominence long after the referendum took place.

The official campaigns expressed no concerns with the plebiscite, the question, the legality and both campaigns were content with and agreed with the Governments undertaking that the result would be honoured.

There is no legal or moral case for not delivering on that result and any argument to rerun that referendum by this or any other name is dishonesty, disingenuity dishonour and a disgusting act of arrogance and patronising pomposity.

I agree with you, Andy. The whole Brexit thing is a disgrace.
All I'm waiting for is a Corbyn government and some decent socialist policies.

Re: [Part-Timer] EU Withdrawal Negotiations [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

We could have a record number of parties returned to the European Parliament on behalf of the U.K. next month with Change U.K. now approved to take part.

If I get this right;
1. Conservatives - Leave with a deal
2. UKIP - Leave without a deal.
3. Brexit Party - Leave without a deal.
4. DUP - Leave but not with Mays deal
5. Labour - Leave with common market after second vote
6. Change U.K. - Second referendum & Remain
7. Liberal Democrat’s - Remain
8. SNP - Remain in the EU and Leave U.K.
9. Plaid - Reamin in the EU and leave U.K.
10. Sinn Fein - Remain in the EU, Leave U.K. and Join RoI
11. Green - Remain in EU
12. Ulster Unionist - (Remain in 2016 referendum)

If I get this right;
1. Conservatives - Leave with a deal But some don't to leave, and others don't want a deal
2. UKIP - Leave without a deal. Actually, they don't want to leave at all - as campaigning to leave is the only reason they are there
3. Brexit Party - Leave without a deal. As above - this is just for Farage to be in the papers, and has we left, he would have had to find something else
4. DUP - Leave but not with Mays deal Don't really mind what happens, so long as they can make a fuss about it, and stay part of UK
5. Labour - Leave with common market after second vote. See Conservatives
6. Change U.K. - Second referendum & Remain Are these the gang of more than four, making less waves then the original Social democrat party?
7. Liberal Democrat’s - Remain Probably the most united party, as there are't many of them
8. SNP - Remain in the EU and Leave U.K.
9. Plaid - Reamin in the EU and leave U.K.
10. Sinn Fein - Remain in the EU, Leave U.K. and Join RoI
11. Green - Remain in EU
12. Ulster Unionist - (Remain in 2016 referendum)

For those that believe such nonsense the current polls show the Brexit Party well in front.
Personally I believe it's fake news designed to create a sense of jeopardy to galvanise the Remain vote who are famous for not actually bothering to take democracy particularly seriously.

As opposed to those who think democracy went on hold after the Referendum in 2016.

Ironically, the EU election is being described as a "soft Referendum" ie in effect another Referendum.

Labour have a difficult choice.

Lidington and Starmer are two of the few grown ups involved in the current mess, between them they could come up with a Brexit compromise deal that would have majority support in the HofC. But the worry for Labour is that any promises the Tories make now on workers rights etc could be renounced by May's successor later this year.

They may reckon that rather than agree a deal now with May/Lidington that lets the Tories avoid taking part in EU elections, they hold off, and let the Tories vigorously self harm themselves during a "soft Referendum". But they have to decide whether they could keep united themselves through such an election campaign.

Surprised the Tories are as high as that.

I do think Change U.K. will end up splitting the Ultra-Remain vote in England. Not sure there is any benefit to them setting up that new party, surely a combination with the Lib Dem’s would be better (find myself agreeing with Vince Cable for once).

No they don't.
Labour are well in front in Westminster voting intentions.

In EU voting polls it's closer, Labour lead but the Brexit Party are in second place, admittedly well ahead of the Tories.

There are other polls out there.....ie YouGov's, that confirms what I reported about the surge in support for Farage's new party putting them in the early lead for votes.
Whether or not they can sustain that initial groundswell of support is another matter.

However, I'm aware there are many that are beguiled by them , especially when they are tailored to produce the message they support.
