So we cancel Brexit.. then what ? UK becomes an even lesser member of the EU ?

Seems best to pull out, hard Brexit (no benefits) and have done with it, then start afresh. All this messing around is damaging to everyone.

This was the plan of the position as soon as they realized they lost. Create road blocks on every corner, put fear and bad taste in everyone's mouth, then call for another vote once public opinion waver.

Plan of the "opposition"

to demand that the British government holds a public vote on the terms of Brexit.

1.6 million people above the remain voters, already decided. These idiots need to pick up their pacifiers and go home! Typical loser left cry babies.

Typical loser left cry babies.

Many conservatives are remainers and many on the left are brexiteers.

Who’s putting fake news about that it’s a clear left/right divide?

I've actually come round to the idea of a second referendum. Then if we give the wrong answer again, we can have a third, a fourth and maybe a best out of five. After all, democracy is an "ongoing process" not an event or something like that.

This whole Brexit thing looked so heat of the moment to me. This is a major economic crisis situation here for the UK. They need to stop reading about the royals and start looking at what May and Parliament are really up to.

Whilst I agree that (rightly or wrongly) the British public has voted and it should be left as it is, the vote for Brexit was not just limited to the right. Many left-leaning people voted to leave the EU as well, seeing it as a bureacracy and limited in its scope regarding the rights of British people.

And on the march, there were those who vote for the Conservatives - so it's not as straightforward as you make it out to be.

The students, social workers and entitled denizens of Islington, Hampstead, etc. should have gotten off their backsides and voted that day if they wanted to remain. Smug complacency beforehand and whinging afterward is no way to win a referendum.

Yes. Ireland's inevitable reunification is growing closer now and if the UK can leave the EU, the occupied 6 counties can be relinquished.

Way this keeps going, some people are going to start looking around for some guy named Arthur in which to give supreme executive authority and lead Albion in its darkest hour.

I don't know beans about UK politics but I'm glad someone sees this is not just 'black + white'. Now if Americans can just open their eyes + minds - everything's been 'for us or against us' or 'us/them' for much too long.
