So, here we are, a couple or three months away from the ‘Brexit’ (I so hate that word!) deadline.
What do we know for sure?
- We were lied to on a grand scale
- The far right of the Conservative party are desperate for us to leave without a deal ( what the newspapers are calling a ‘hard brexit’).
- The Labour leadership have been less than dynamic over the whole thing.
- The UK is split more than ever
- Theresa May has proved to be a ‘uniter’ – Pretty much everyone is united in their dislike of her!
- Only 70% of the electorate voted in the referendum
- Of the 43,000,000 entitled to vote, just 17,410,742 voted to leave (40%)
- 25,589,258 people did not vote to leave the EU.
- The consistency for a ‘peoples vote’ – or in other words, a second referendum has been with the Green Party and the Liberal Democrats.
Given the importance of this issue to the UK in general, would it be right to have another vote?
