Pretty much irrelevant if you then don't vote in General Elections. It's not democracy when it suits you, if you don't like it go to another country but that is how our democracy has worked for 100 years. You can;t complain that your vote isn't heard and then not vote, that is just dumb. One vote doesn't decide generations, its why we have them at least every 5 years so the electorate gets a chance to get rid of crap governments who make bad decisions or don't implement their policies. Because surprisingly people can make bad decisions and change their minds. I also don't remember vote leave EVER = no deal Brexit. From a recent poll I have seen people would rather see a temporary government to avoid no deal and there is also a clear majority that would stay in the UK over a no deal Brexit, so this notion that people voted in 2016 and we should just leave whatever is complete utter bollocks as clearly people do not feel that way. So they are not ignoring the vote of 17.4 million people because 17.4 million people did not vote for a no deal Brexit, most polls show that no deal only has about 1/3 support on average, so in going for a no deal you would basically be ignoring the wishes of around 60 - 65% of the country. It is also why the Lib Dems have decided to go this way, they clearly feel that the mood has changed (and it has btw, as every poll for the last two years has shown a remain majority). Like it or not but the 2016 poll was essentially an OPINION poll, an opinions are like the weather, they change all the time, so why considering the referendum was not legally binding should the electorate be held to it? You can bemoan the parties for not delivering Brexit or MPs voting against it, but that is basically no different to a party not upholding an election promise, if you don't like it, you vote them out next general election. If for example we had a referendum on say universal basic income, I'd reckon you'd get a majority that would back it, and a political party in power might say they would implement it, but they would still have to pay for it and most probably wouldn't be able to. They then fail to deliver on that promise, if you don't like that vote for someone else next election, that is how we hold our elected MPs accountable. If you chose not to do that then tough luck, time to shut up, you have no right to complain.
