    Brexit - Do you think we can just ask everyone nicely to forget about it

    Afternoon All,

    well, as recent events have shown the country doesn't want Brexit, and now the Government and everybody are starting to water down Brexit to the point where there is no Brexit, do you think if we just ask Brussels nicely to forget about it, and we stop talking about it, it will go away.

    I mean, the Elephant in the room was always that nobody wanted Brexit.

    Milan.

      Absolutely, the General Election has changed everything. It effectively negated the referendum. The government didn't get a majority for their Brexit. The best you can hope for is "Soft Brexit" which will just be a sh*ttier version of membership.

      As Anna Soubry said when Andrew Neil challenged her on her demand for a Soft Brexit, "the people have spoken".

        Nearly every person I know who voted for Brexit have changed their minds. Some were hard liners until the farce of the general election.

          It seems pretty evenly split.

          Would be interesting to see some post GE polling.

            Nonsense.

            It was a general election and, as usual, people voted on the various parties' manifestos and the proposals contained therein, some of which were related to Brexit but there was a whole raft of other issues on which people were voting, e.g. the "dementia" tax.

            We've had a referendum on whether or not we wish to leave the EU and 52% of the people who voted voted to leave so it's done and dusted.

            Get over it.

              Most people were expecting the Tories to win a landslide in the GE and basically confirm Brexit as after a year of debate everyone is a bit clearer about what it is. But they didn't, so everything is up in the air.

                No it's not.

                Look at the polls - when the election was called the cons were 20 points in the lead; ostensibly because of the expectation of them getting the Brexit that people voted for.

                What blew it was the atrocious campaign, the dementia tax and the subsequent climbdown.

                  That's why there needs to be a second referendum, to clarify, In the first referendum the young didn't vote, they're now motivated.

                  I think the second referendum is clearly going to happen, and the youth will swing it.

                  be afraid, be very afraid....

                    I saw a poll over the weekend which had 52% remain, 48% leave.

                    Democracy, innit?
