• Would a second Brexit vote take Britain from a democracy to a Dictatorship?

    Best answer: It would send a worrying message. In Britain, we don't have referendums on many issues and when we do, it is typically once in a generation (the last vote on staying in the EU, prior to 2016, was in 1975 for example) and we are constantly told that Your Vote Matters and any decision is final.

    Best answer: It would send a worrying message. In Britain, we don't have referendums on many issues and when we do, it is typically once in a generation (the last vote on staying in the EU, prior to 2016, was in 1975 for example) and we are constantly told that Your Vote Matters and any decision is final.

    Even David Cameron, who strongly supported Remain (and resigned in a hissy fit when the vote didn't go his way), was at pains to point out that the referendum was a one-shot deal - it wouldn't be a "neverendum" to use his words.

    To hold a vote on the same issue, so soon after the last one, would send out a message of contempt to everyone (not just Leave) who voted in the last referendum. Essentially it's saying: that vote didn't count, this is the real one. Well, you lied to us when you told us our vote mattered last time, so why should we believe you this time? Also, it's clear that those calling for a second vote aren't motivated by any lofty desire to "let the people have their say" or whatever - they just want to overturn the first one. If a second vote is held and it's "leave" again, the 2nd referendum supporters won't just lie down and accept it then (after all, they didn't accept the first leave vote, so why the second?) You'll start hearing the drumbeat for a 3rd referendum, or "I can't believe it's not The People's Vote" or whatever they decide to call it.

    The only way a 2nd referendum could work is if it was on a different question, the choice between deals - e.g. May's Deal or No Deal. Any referendum that had Remain as an option on the ballot (the choice voters rejected last time) would throw a poison dart at democracy - I can actually see civil unrest happening on a large scale if that occurred.

    One good thing about the whole argy-bargy over Brexit is that it has shone a light on what horrible creatures our most of our political class and elites really are - and what contempt they have for average members of the working public. If we trusted these people to act in our best interests before, we won't be so naive again. Fool me once...
