        Total hogwash.
        You seem to forget there was 4% winning margin and not everyone entitled to vote did.

          That's the funniest thing I've read since I last opened Viz.

            Didn't all the polls show that Remain led the way, up to and including the day of the vote, or am I getting senile? Small sample numbers give rise to misleading results that should not be taken as representative of the whole population. Just the kind of thing that crappy journo's like this to use to present their side of an argument as being correct and produce some nice clickbait news.

              Basic arithmetic not your strong point then? (Never mind grammar). Less than 640,000 people who voted for leaving would need to change their minds (exactly 640'000 would give a 10,499 majority).

              But as Admin points out - the polls were wrong before the referendum, so why should this one be any more accurate?

                You are correct. And by a bigger lead than this. Which is why it's so funny.

                It also relies on the people who didn't turn out actually doing do this time. Which they won't.

                And if it did come out like this, the majority would be smaller than the actual vote, so surely we would need a third attempt.

                After yesterday's decision and Sky's snap poll that found in favour of the PM, I would be surprised if the actual Leave majority wasn't greater. Especially as the BOE has upgraded it's forecasts and the project fear threats didn't happen.

                  In the 1640's the British fought a civil war to establish the sovereignty of parliament over royal prerogative and then in 1688 there was the Glorious Revolution to uphold this now in 2016 Brexiters propose a civil war to reestablish royal prerogative as a way to govern Britain. What should it be?
                  Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

                    Today's laugh.

                    Scottish MSPs voted to Leave.

                    They fear Scotland will be treated like Greece.

                    Is that why The Witch isn't pushing for the second referendum?
