    Crunching the numbers about Brexit.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 13 Mar 2018, 11:45 am

    Have voters changed their minds about Brexit?

    With little more than a year to go before the UK is due to leave the European Union, the issue of Brexit remains a divisive one. Where does public opinion currently stand?

    Brexit continues apace, with controversy never far away.

    The prime minister recently proposed the UK should leave both the single market and customs union. Labour countered that the country should remain in a customs union.

    Former prime ministers Sir John Major and Tony Blair, have both suggested that Parliament should be prepared to vote down any "hard" deal and consider holding a second referendum - a possibility dismissed by Brexit campaigners.

    None of this might matter if Theresa May had a safe overall majority in the House of Commons and a parliamentary party that was united in its support for Brexit.

    Of course she does not.

    I am sure that many of the original "out" voters might have changed their minds after all of the troubles concerning the Brexit negotiations, and pulling out of the Customs Union and the Single Market - as we will probably have to do to get a deal - is not part of what the original "out" voters voted for.

    I very much doubt if our "negotiators" have the intelligence or the power to give us what could be called a "good" deal, and the pull out is now starting to look like a hard Brexit as the days go by.

    I think that if the referendum was to be run again we would find that instead of a 51/48 % result for "out" we would find a much greater percentage for "remain" now.

    The thing is that I don't think we are going to get another referendum.

    I have to agree Zathrus, as The Tory government do not want their lives made any harder by what could be the result of a second referendum on the EU.

    It may happen again in the future as the British populace might see, after pulling out, that Britain is not such a good place outside the EU.

    The trouble is that if we ask to get back in, the door will be totally shut.

    I see your point Angie, but I think that even after we have finally pulled out of Europe, the EU and the unelected members of The EC will want us back in in as many ways that are possible.

    This cannot happen until we are truly out.
