There certainly was a lot of pre referendum cooking of the books going on

One of the remain arguments is that the referendum result wasnt "clear" enough in that not a large enough number of people voted leave therefore another votes needed to clarify this aspect.

Im still not seeing any kind of response to the following question though; In the event of another vote if remain won by the same margin as leave did would that then be the end of the matter?

Im going to suggest that remain wouldnt then want yet another vote because it seems to me theyd somehow believe their win would mean more legitimacy than the previous leave win..... Thats a little screwy to my mind and smacks of unfairness. Its rather like taking ones ball home because the game didnt go the way it was expected.

Since remain voters are so adamant we need another vote you have to ask the question is it then right for leave voters to demand a further vote?
And then what if the result of that vote is 50/50?
Do you just keep on voting until people get so pissed off at the whole exercise that they abandon the process altogether?
Where does it end?

I can say right now that those sqealing about getting another bite of the cherry will only ever accept one outcome, which is them getting their own way 100% of the time and regardless of what a democratic vote and hence the will of the majority voted for.

When you take a willing part in referendum you accept the terms and conditions that are prerequisite when you participate you bind yourself by the conditions and such participation signals your acceptance of such conditions.
If remainers didnt want to bound by the terms of the contract then why did they take part only to shriek hysterically that its all so unfair they couldnt have what they wanted?

Dangerous times for democracy.
