Pf course. Who knew the great unwashed were going to rise up and express an opinion. And the problem is , as you say, most of them really didn't have a clue what the vote was about. But they had a vote and used it, and now we have to to respect that decision. Even though it is a disaster.
See this really beats me. Rather than admitting a mistake was made ( at a very particular point in time that was dominated by media reporting about oceans full of refugees trying to land in EU and nick our jobs and which were further blown up by right wing parties) you seem to be saying ' okay we made a mistake but we will follow it through' instead of 'we made a mistake how can we mend it?
You know I am a nice guy so I won't say the latter is the more intelligent approach and the former stuborn stupidity.
