Should we have a second EU referendum? – live

Wed, 06/29/2016 - 16:51
pJoin us at 12pm today to discuss where you stand and why. Follow the blog over the morning as we will update it with opinions from journalists and experts/pp class="block-time published-time" time datetime="2016-06-29T09:51:03.004Z"10.51am span class="timezone"BST/span/time /ppOf course we can’t have a second referendum. Much of the carping that has followed the Brexit camp’s narrow victory last week has focused on that small differential between leave and remain. But a call for a new threshold – say two-thirds, a majority of registered voters, or a consensus among the nations – is too little too late. If people wanted that they should have campaigned for it while David Cameron was drawing up his referendum plans. They didn’t – largely because of the arrogance among EU supporters that they would win any subsequent vote. You can be sure that had Cameron thought there was a realistic chance of defeat he would have put some mechanism in there to ensure he couldn’t lose. After all, it’s hard to argue that this is not a monumental constitutional change, and it’s entirely appropriate such a change should need more than just a simple majority. But he did not. And people were not up in arms about it at the time. Now – were the sore losers to simply call a second referendum, there would quite rightly be uproar among those voters who opted to depart the Union, especially those that already feel part of the left behind./ppSo EU supporters, what’s it to be? Leave Europe and come up with the best compromise we can to protect our rights, our economy and our relationship with our neighbours– or win a contentious rerun, stay in the EU, but alienate half the country? Neither is ideal, but one seems far more likely to cause a wave of civil unrest than the other./pp class="block-time published-time" time datetime="2016-06-29T09:45:30.001Z"10.45am span class="timezone"BST/span/time /ppInteresting comments from The Guardian’s diplomatic editor Patrick Wintour today on a href="http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jun/29/uk-voted-for-brexit-but-is-there-a-way-back"whether a second referendum is possible/a:/ppThere is also pressure to hold a second referendum.
