I voted to leave the EU because I was and am concerned about immigration into Europe on an unprecedented and illegal level, not because I was influenced by the red bus propaganda, you always get that in a vote and on both sides. I would now wish to have a vote on the outcomes of the negotiations. I know a lot more than I did 2 yrs ago and also Europe has changed a lot. EU countries have started taking the external European borders security more seriously, Italy, Hungary, Austria and Poland for example and there is a political movement to protect the values that have grown out of our Judea-Christian heritage. Because of this I have started to believe that there is some hope for the EU but of course I don’t trust it. Advice to Remainers, if you want a second referendum please stop insulting those who have different opinions.
In the last week nearly 400,000 people, from all sides of the Brexit debate, have signed a petition calling for a say on the Brexit deal.
Now YouGov have released results of a poll which show that “for the first time more people in the UK support having a second referendum on the terms of the deal than are against it.”
Christian Broughton, an editor of the Independent, started the petition because he believes no matter how people voted in 2016, they deserve the opportunity to vote on the final deal now that Brexit is being negotiated and it is clearer what the options are.
Christian doesn’t have much time to change the Government’s mind and he thinks he still needs more support to create change. If you agree, you can help Christian by adding your name.
Regardless of how you voted in the Brexit referendum, you deserve a say on the final deal.
That’s why we’re launching the Final Say campaign, to win for the British people the right to make that all-important decision on the Brexit deal. Come what may in the months ahead, we maintain our commitment to our readers to retain balance and present many different points of view. But on this subject we believe a referendum on the final deal is right.
We believe there are three reasons:
1. The people, on both sides of the debate, are losing faith with the current process. From Theresa May to parliament as a whole, a chaotic approach has delivered infighting, resignations and party politics, but little progress on the key issues that people care about.
2. The people on both sides should have the chance to finish what they started. With reality coming into focus, it’s only natural to check this future is what people really want. After years of negotiations behind closed doors, the people must not be shut out of the final decision.
3. The people – on both sides – know so much more now than we did in 2016. The campaigns – again, on both sides – were flawed and clouded by misinformation. Many myths have been exposed. Now we must check there is support for the facts of Brexit.
A full account of The Independent’s view is available here.
In 2016, the people were given their say on the principle of whether to stay in the EU or leave. Now the facts are becoming clearer, it’s time for the people to have the final say on the real deal – before it’s too late.
