    So the big multinational businesses recently preaching doomsday if no agreement- why were they not spelling out what they believe to all their employees before the referendum to help all those millions of workers whose jobs may now be at risk - make a more informed decision when they voted?
    Instead all they had to listen to was the tirade of B.S. from Boris and his lot and promises of millions for the NHS! Which anyone with a grain of brain could see was rubbish and false.

    Let's have a vote to decide.

    Now let's have another vote to really decide.

    Yeah, all decisions must be permanent and irrevocable. That's why the US hasn't needed new elections since George Washington became President.

    People may well change their minds once they know what leaving really entails. And that is exactly what the people who oppose holding another vote are afraid of.

    I think some of them did, but I doubt many people would trust their multinational employers to have their best interests at heart. Obama should have kept his big mouth shut too. His opinion was no more welcome then than Trump's is now.

    Let us have another referendum to see if we can come to the right decision. ( that's for the remainers ) I am sure we can stand on our own two feet, we did before.

    It's funny, when I asked people what it was like living in the 60s and 70s, they always said it was hard and life is much better now. So why are the Brexiters suddenly so keen to go back to that time?
