Thread Name: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
None of the paths avoid the risk of rioting, and all are subject to the risk of manipulation, but the idea of a confirmatory referendum seems to offer a potential healing, though it does come with the risk of making the divisions worse. For one thing there will be a substantial group, no doubt lead by Farage amongst others, who will argue it is a choice between BRINO and remain: the only "true leave'is not offered.

Then again, a close result will heal nothing.

And of course the whole approach is too sophisticated to squeeze into a good slogan. "Your choice" is compact and accurate but explains nothing, for example, refers too.much to the 2016 referendum.


So, not a good way forward. But maybe the one with most chances of uniting the country, nonetheless.
