Brexit: what should happen now?

Brexit bild

The UK stands at the brink this week – with just days left before our scheduled departure date of 29 March, we still don’t know if we will be in or out of the EU.

Brexit has caused unprecedented political paralysis and crisis, with competing contenders for the way forward – but no consensus.

There are several options still in play. These are: accepting Theresa May’s deal which was brokered with the EU but which has twice been resoundingly rejected by MPs at Westminster, exiting the EU with no deal at all, exiting but
remaining in a customs union and the single market, as proposed by Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, revoking Article 50 and cancelling Brexit, putting the issue to a so-called People’s Vote to let citizens decide the way forward, or
holding a general election in order to try to break the political impasse.

Which of these options would you favour?

I've signed the great petition for Revoke article 50, but I do think it should be done with a people's vote, so I checked that. if you haven't signed the petition yet it is here https://17millionsignatures.uk/?fbclid=IwAR08h--DYKDG-IwQ0OsLx4vbOpcJycK_kAVuPFbQ5ZN2jupr7Ej7bdbdHqk and please do pass it on if you agree. Get at least 3 new people to sign it.

Ideally I would like "No Brexit - revoke Article 50", but because of the first referendum result it would be fairer to have a People's Vote - this is still democratic! I suspect the result would be "No Brexit..."

And if the 'peoples' vote' doesn't work, do we have yet another one until we get the result the retainers want? And how does a 'peoples vote' differ from a referendum? Since the referendum resulted in 'leave' victory should we not respect that? Oh but of course not. After all, the Independence referendum which according to AS 'settled the matter for a generation' left the THOSE exiters unhappy. So they want another one. The moral to this sad tale is Government by referendum is a bad idea. If you don't like the way the country is going, vote out the government. A well worn system but one which actually works

Lok, perhaps best to stick to facts. Mr Salmond stated on many occasions that 'in his view' in was a 'once in a generation opportunity' based on what had happened in the past. Given the absolute lies told by the Bitter Together campaign with a similar volume of lies told by the Brexit leave campaign you seem very determined that only what you consider to be a result should stand - I presume that if a salesperson sold you something based on lies you would quite happily accept the result no matter what the cost or damages to yourself or your family?

I did, RM. You agreed what salmond said. Absolute lies? Salmond was perhaps a trifle economique avec le realite. Currency? Armed forces? Faslane employment figures? Is it realistic to assume, as you do, that the side you agreed with spoke nothing but the unvarnished truth whilst the other side was incapable of nothing but lies? I have yet to come across ANY political campaign which was black and white.
