    If the majority want it they'll vote again. What's the problem?
    And how do you determine if the majority want it? Have a referendum on having a referendum?

    If necessary.

    No, I believe the future of this country is best served by it remaining independent, as opposed to becoming merely a 'county' within the EU superstate.

    I'm in favour of the single market, freedom of movement (to WORK, not to claim benefits), the customs union, etc etc.
    ...and yet you voted to destroy it all based on the pure fantasy listed in the rest of your post.
    Please note that any abuse in this post is both intentional and deserved.

    Anyone that feels the need to further point out that it contains abuse is clearly a total fucking moron who's also insulting YOUR intelligence by pointing out the bleeding obvious as if you were too fucking dumb to notice it.

    This has been a public service annoncement by Fork Me. Have a nice fucking day.

    OK, let me explain this to you.

    The Tories stood in the 2015 on a platform which included having a referendum on EU membership. They won the election and we had the referendum.

    The only way we're going to have a second referendum, will be if a party wins the 2022 election on a platform of having a second referendum.

    The Tories aren't going to have that in their manifesto, so your only hope is that a Corbyn led Labour party will have it in their manifesto, and win the election.

    This won't happen because Corbyn himself is anti-EU. In any case, by 2022 we will have left the EU and would have to apply to re-join as a new member, joining the queue behind places like Montenegro and Iceland.

    So, no answer, then.

    Mr Fred
    Ah, the "let's keep having votes until we get the result we want" argument.
    Tell you what, if people are stupid enough to vote a labour government in, let's keep having elections until they get kicked out. One a week should be enough.
    Just for once, Fred, you're right about something.

    There was no question, but I tried to explain to you why there won't be a second referendum on EU membership. If you think I'm wrong, then please explain why. Don't try to change the subject.
