You could very well be right Kevin. Personally, although I object to referendums on principle, I’d go for it if it was the only way out. I’m not at all certain, though, that the result of the first referendum would be reversed - Leavers’ attitudes seem to have hardened and I don’t believe many would be won over to the Remain side.
From my perspective, absolutely the last thing I want is a GE. I think the Conservative Smear-Machine would go into overdrive in an attempt to finally and completely destroy JC’s reputation, and therefore wreck the chances of a Labour government being voted in. And, to be honest, I really wouldn’t want Labour to inherit the Tories’ mess - they started it, let them finish it. With any luck it will destroy them and see them out of office for years to come.
