    Okay so it seems many people want it to be reversed or a 2nd vote at least.

    Whats the overall opinion i wonder.

    2nd referendum but any deal should be done before the vote.

    The problem with the last one is everyone voted blindly and on the promises of a gang of lying turd-bags.

    Why should there be a second referendum? We vote to go back in the EU? Great. The EU will have the trump card and shaft us to f*ck. It’s their rules or do one.

    F*ck the EU.

    We're between a rock, a brick wall, a spike and a hard place at the minute.

    Leave with May's deal? Ok it's probably our best option but it won't get through Parliament.

    2nd Referendum? Leave voters go mental, and if we voted remain this time would the EU let us back in and things would be back to as they were? I doubt it.

    Cancel it? Not as simple as that really.

    No Deal? We'd be royally ****ed if we did that. Our economy would take a beating.

    I've no opinion on where the uk should go from here because it's not going to end well.

    Agree completely with this. If I'm honest I don't think Fox, Boris or Gove really thought Leave would win.

    Kind of sums it up that we are 4/5 months away from leaving and no-one is sure what will happen or in some cases what they want!

    And in all probability no-one will be sure what happens afterwards.

    What will No deal mean in simple terms?

    We get to do exactly what we want from the off.
    No-one can tell us who we can trade with we save £394 million a week for a start because we wont be paying into the EU.
    Sure it will be tough but were British and we civilised the world ffs a few trade deals here and there will be a piece of piss.Especially when the EU buy more from us than us them.

    No it's not, it's easily the worse option. Why would anybody want the country to become a vassal state to the EU?

    Ah brilliant. That clears it up.

    The solution to everything. Just yell Brexit means Brexit and tell the EU to **** off and see where we go from there.

    I wouldn't vote in a 2nd referendum, or indeed any election local or national ever again. A true democracy doesn't keep going back to the voters until it gets the answer it wants.

    Christ but I'm sick of hearing this rubbish.

    There were months and months of canvassing and leafletting before the vote, and it wasn't just the Boris bus that made outlandish claims about savings and future benefits. Just like anything that involves career politicians the electorate has to decide who's the lesser of the evils on offer and await the proof of the pudding. Let's not forget no country has ever had the temerity to leave the EU before, so all the processes regarding how to go about it have been theoretical until this point. But anyone who voted 'blindly' on June 23rd 2016 did so because they couldn't be bothered opening their eyes.

    Surely a democracy of asking the people to vote on an issue is the people deciding what they want? So the people are getting what they want, which is democracy.

    Why does it have to be rigid to one vote? Surely a proper democracy can reflect and change its mind? Now we're stuck with a decision the majority no longer want. That's not democracy.

    Also, a 1% majority should never result in a big decision being secured. There should always be a significant majority.

    It's the purest democracy, everyone had the opportunity to vote and it was a simple in/out choice. Your suggestion that the 'majority no longer want' to leave is nothing but speculation and something I totally disagree with. As for being able to 'reflect and change its mind' yet again this is a suggestion you wouldn't be making if the vote had gone the other way. The only way to provide the democracy you want would be a referendum every 2 years in case the country changed its collective mind.

    If the referendum had been arranged so that only a 10% (for instance) majority either way would be acceptable then you'd have a point, but it wasn't and arguing about the size of the majority after the event is 2 1/2 years too late.

    This. There should never have been a vote to leave the EU without agreeing a deal first. Once the deal was in place the politicians would have found it much harder to create lies to swing us.

    You can disgree with poll numbers all you like, they're not an exact sceince. Yes, a second referendum would be great for any issue, especially one that's as close as this. Why would you want less power of the people getting what they want, or the "purest democracy"? Not sure why you're focusing on me, I'm saying it as a general rule. If my side had won by such a slim margain I wouldn't argue against a second vote.

    So that's the way it is and there's no manoeuvre for change?
