Vote - Keep or close we are doomed thread

The thread has gone round the houses so many times.
You have no chance of a second vote to keep open or close hence this post.

Just so long as we can have a third vote if we don’t like the second, you know, like democracy.

We have a democratic 'third vote' at least every twelfth year!

(How many times does it need pointing out?)

AHA! Someone's discovered TM and Baldrick's cunning plan? Though you be tired and weary keep right on voting, keep right on and on and on... to the end of the road.

Get your peaked cloth cap before stocks run out and learn ye olde form of fawning respect for when our Lord's and masters etc., pass by in their chauffeur 'Geeza job I can do that' driven rollers.

Yes exactly, we cant vote twice on the original if you have changed your mind hence I posted the second. But, no one seems to be brave enough to vote.

I'm coming to the conclusion that voting only encourages the politicians.

Re: Vote - Keep or close we are doomed thread

What we have learnt is don't have a vote if you don't want an answer; I thought everyone knew that anyway but apparently the politicians had forgotten. Perhaps this trusim should be modified to include not havinmg a vote if you don't understand the question and/or don't understand the answer.

So you agree there is no point in holding a second referendum John?
