Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The only way "to be done with it" would be to abandon the whole Brexit enterprise.
In fact that needn't even involve reversing the result of the 2016 referendum. All we voted for was to leave the European Union. Nothing to do with getting out of the Customs Union or the Single Market, or ending freedom of movement around Europe. Brexiteers have repeatedly said that just leaving the EU without those things wouldn't be Brexit. Fine, no one never voted for "Brexit".
In fact undoubtedly for a lot of people their vote had nothing to do with Europe at all. Voting to Leave was a great way to kick out at David Cameron and the Tory government.
