It looks like the UK will be heading towards another referendum. Question: should it be a choice between remain or leave like last time or a choice between two different leave options?

Having a repeat of the first referendum will make the UK look foolish, an admission that it was clueles as to what it was doing the first time around. With that in mind, maybe a choice between two leave options would be preferable.

It would be foolish to have to repeat the same referendum questions as before. It would imply the British voted foolishly the first time around. Two different leave options would suggest that they've moving forward, not in circles.

Brexit is probably the only national independence movement of the last 500 years in which the majority of the people running the territory actually don't want independence. It's the ordinary people who want it. Yet the leaders of that territory are actively trying to overturn a fair democratic decision by the people to prevent their own territory becoming an independent state.

It's actually very shocking and embarrassing.

Of course, the Brexiteers will ultimately prevail. When an independence movement starts and gains ground it's very difficult to stop it.

Who elected the people running the territory? Embarrassing indeed!
