    I'm not sure if this has been asked, I couldn't see a poll. In light of the decision, and from seeing reports that people regret their decision to vote to exit, I wondered if there were any people here regretting this now.

    So did you vote to exit and now wish you didn't, or vice versa?

    I think the media are trying to make something of this idea that some are regretting their vote.
    Its only been a few days, and its far too early to see how this is going to play out.

    If we had the vote again, I think many of those that voted 'safe' but really wanted out would have the courage to join the rest of the leavers. I am sure the result would be like 70-30 out

    I voted out and still happy with the choice. A lot of arguments are being blown out of proportion due to anger and disappointment, which is understandable given how strongly people felt on both sides. Things will work out, it will just take time, there are processes that need to be gone through to move forward. Trying to rush things will not help anyone I imagine given the scale of work to come.

    Voted exit and enjoyed it so much I'd love to do it again. Every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

    Voted to remain and everything since has reinforced my decision.

    This isn't likely to be the best place too see results reflecting any regret though. I'd hazard a guess those with regret were unlikely to be seeking out political discussions in the first place.

    Not sure it would be that much, but I'm certain a rerun this Thursday would have a stronger 'Leave' result (now that Project Fear is evaporating before our eyes).

    Voted out. No regrets whatsoever. In fact most of what I have seen and read since confirms to me I did the right thing.

    Seems to me that some pro EU groups (not aimed at anyone on here) don't like it when they dont get their own way. So how can you negotiate on an even keel, whilst being partners, but your partners throw a tantrum if they do not get what they want. EU seems more and more like a dictatorship we are well rid of.

    One thing that certainly isn't disappearing is some of the predictions made by 'project fear' and it will be many years before the dust settles and we can say whether the 'scaremongering' was just that or actually fact.

    No I think once we were into the referendum then two things applied imo

    1 stay
    EU would claim full acceptance by UK and possibly pay more and have to join the Euro and Cameron's negotiations would have been removed as well

    2 Leave
    Have a chance through the unknown to bargain wheel and deal something slightly better possibly

    All I know and am convinced we could never remain as we were as soon as the referendum was called for it was going to be full in or out with some mobility

    Either way the politicians have and are behaving appallingly

    Cameron is fully responsible for the situation and washed he's hands and buffering off

    Cant believe that its cost the world $3TN and Bank of England had to pump £250 BN in to prop up the pound £80BN was wiped off Pensions, our credit rating is now negative and its ok?
    We wont get a better deal and best case scenario will be -3% GDP.
    Yes we will all be better off....... how?
    I dont agree with how the EU works but its not as bad as its going to be...
    The world now thinks of our nation as a bunch of xenophobic numptys prepared to believe any Farage or Boris ***!, which from seeing how people are acting first hand is not far from the truth.
    We now have a weaker standing in the world economy and as a whole.

    I voted out and I'm happy with my decision, that said I'd much rather of had some sort of plan of action in place from either side of our elected few rather than the OMG now what do we do ! Has been somewhat addressed today though in the commons today.

    The poll is flawed because it doesn't spilt people who are happy with their vote into the two categories :D

    Where did you get that? I think all Mark Carney said is it was available, if needed. Let me know if I'm missing something.
