We were promised by Brexit campaigners including Boris that at the very least we would get free and meaningful access to the single market post-Brexit. They didn't think that "out is out" at the time, they said we would be in a position to basically cherry-pick, but funnily enough now they have the referendum under their belt they can do what they heck they like. The deals are looking rubbish and surprise surprise no Brexiters believe in democracy enough to get the approval of the people.

But no one voted to leave free access to the single market. I agree we should leave when the majority are happy with the deal.

If you do respect a referendum, then you also should respect the prospect of another one once terms are agreed.. not a referendum on IF we leave, but a referendum on whether we accept those particular terms. Hell, if we are democratic enough to have a chance to say we want to leave, then why aren't we democratic enough to have a chance to say how? It doesn't add up. Democratic when it suits you isn't democratic.

That was a year ago. Would the majority want to get out in 2 years time? Surely the democratic thing to do is to check before taking the plunge.

Considering the magnitude of this decision, don't you want the opportunity to have a final say before we actually leave? You might change your mind once we know what the actual deal (or no deal), is.

You voted In? HAHA! Bullcrap Toryboy, we see through you. You voted out because your leaders told you to... They made you promises about the single market... well well well let's see if they keep them and what you will do when they don't. Will you hold them to account, or just make more excuses for them?

Boris Johnson, "there will continue to be free trade, and access to the single market." Sounds good to me. Let's see.

Go back to your Daily Mail dumb ass. Back then your leader was Farage and you did what all right wing dunces do and followed his orders and believed his promises. But thenUKIP were trounced by the Tories, remember?? And you had to change your flag and believe their promises instead. So let's see if what Farage and Johnson and May promised turns out to be true, or were you taken for a ride? Poor dumb conservatard doesn't have his own bwain and gets expoited by people wot went to skool.

You said the majority voted out, so we should get out. But what if at the time of getting out, people change their minds. After all, you did - and that was only after 1 year. We have at least another 2 years to go.

Wrong. Corbyn was "for ‘Remain and Reform’ in Europe". You knew that which is why you were spouting Corbyn propaganda as usual.

I don't think we should have another referendum about leaving. That's ridiculous. That's going through all the hassle (and economical and political turmoil) for 2 years for absolutely no reason.

We do need a referendum about the terms. We were made promises, and now they're not true they need to put it back to us. Until we find a deal that reflects the promises made, we should postpone (but not cancel) our departure.
