Voted leave, still want to leave, happy to leave with a good deal, would rather leave with no deal than a bad one.

I think mine was simpler :)
Yep and jinx. Sorry mine was to allow for if people had changed views, but whatever, you're the mod. Delete if unnecessary. But hey, even a poll can't be agreed on now let alone Brexit.

First two choices are to then leave with a deal or without one.

How, when this one doesn’t have the “Couldn’t Vote but wanted to leave all along and now want to remain because the Government/Parliament is useless and didn’t have a plan”? ;)
Don't be an arse. Perhaps time to go to bed, and stop pretending you know better what others think.

Being completely honest, I've lost interest.. what will be, will be.

If I had a choice, I'd follow the outcome of the vote and leave, I don't care much for politics, but I do believe if we're living in a democracy then it should be honoured, otherwise what's the point?

If the public were misinformed, lied to or given incorrect information then it is the parties that failed, not the public.

I live in a very strong leave area, and I don't think many have changed their mind.

I wasn't being an arse, I wouldn't ever consider that but it's your choice to feel that way. Which part of my post was incorrect as you've stated your position a number of times?

That just clearly demonstrates that you really don't pay attention.

I honestly thought my summary fitted what you've said over the long Brexit road? You would have voted Leave if you could but, as time has gone and the Government has shown a clear failure to plan, you would now support revoking A50 and remaining in the EU until such time as a plan was formulated.

Unfortunately - no.

Yet again the poll is coloured by the agenda of the originator.

In addition, like many other polls, this has been personalised with the use of 'I' and 'we'.

Too many choices makes the poll cluttered.

Polls should be formatted to account for people like me: stupid, slow, ignorant, easily confused and no time for faffing about with politics and going on marches waving placards.

Yesterday I read that although the UK can unilaterally revoke Article 50 and remain in Europe there are some conditions. Although the UK will for the very most part retain the same terms they will not be allowed to invoke Article 50 again. It reasonably expalined that it was to stop the UK from using it to buy time, but equally it made no mention of how long that restriction would last. In fact, whether true or not, it gave the impression that it was a lock in - “you have had your one chance”.

I mention this because the last two but one Poll options include “may want to leave in future” and that may not be a valid option.

Cheers,


Nigel

Also more self-serving political games.

May urged to quit to help deal pass

So we have MPs that won’t vote for the deal because May is Prime Minisiter. Really, are they that selfish.

I read this as they are happy with the deal, presumably think it is the best option for the country, but won’t vote for it because May is the Prime Minister. Or alternatively they think the deal is bad but will vote for it if May steps down. Either way it appalls me - absolutely no integrity or regard for the country.

Surely the deal is the deal is the same deal whoever is Prime Minister.

It’s all just power games with the country being used as one of the pawns.

Where is Guy Fawkes when you need him.

Cheers,

So if you don't get your way you think terrorism is the answer. Interesting.

What we're currently seeing is democracy in action in the country where modern democracy holds its roots, and has arguably been best practised over the last few centuries. It's not pretty, but I promise you all it's better than the alternative.

We'll get an acceptable solution eventually. Or we won't and we'll vote in a Government that will. Or at least they'll try to.

For all those who think what's happened since the vote has been a fix and orchestrated to make Brexit fail - why didn't 'The Establishment' simply fix the vote? No one really thought Brexit would win, so an extremely narrow Remain victory would have been accepted (from a legitimate vote point of view) - so why allow this sideshow to take place?

The fact of the matter is, and I hate to break this to people who are used to getting their political diet from memes and Youtube, Brexit is extremely complicated. Mindblowingly so.

Doesn't have my preference.

Voted Remain. Don't support another vote, believe Parliament should unilaterally cancel Brexit. Referendum was not legally binding and Parliament are not delegates, they're representatives. They're not there to do their constituent's bidding, as mere meat proxies; they are there to use their judgement to act and vote in ways that they believe to be in the best interests of their constituents and the country.

So "Something else" then.
Referendum was not legally binding
It is. It was passed into law.
and Parliament are not delegates, they're representatives.
So they should represent what the people voted for.

Exactly.

Exactly.

None of the options account for Leave but ONLY with Deal/No Deal.
How many voting Leave with No Deal would still vote Leave if they lost that option and had to accept the deal ?
