Time for another referendum?

by Richard on January 11, 2018

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day, so it was kind of inevitable that at some point Nigel Farage was going to be right about something. I think his time has come, at least in part.

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage says he is close to backing a second EU referendum to end the “whinging and whining” of anti-Brexit campaigners.

Mr Farage told Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff a fresh vote could “kill off” the Remain campaign for a generation.

He said “the percentage that would vote to leave next time would be very much bigger than it was last time round”.

Pro-EU campaigners welcomed his comment, claiming “support is growing” for another referendum.

Whatever anyone may claim, the result of the last referendum was anything but decisive. 52/48 was not a cut and dried result. So I think that we will need another vote when we are clearer what the Brexit negotiated by the government will actually look like.

Unlike Farage, I’m as sure as I can be that this time ‘Remain’ would win the day.
