is made by an independent production company. Afraid I stopped watching having got fed-up when it seemed to be disproportionately promoting UKIP and other fringe right-wing opinion. Reckon it’s time for a new production company if it wants some credibility back!

And the logic of delivering on a 2016 vote when you can ask voters what they think now and act in that is what? Surely acting on an up-to-date opinion has to be the the more democratic way forward?

Many students were turned away from polling stations at General Election 2017. Verification meant their registration couldn't be processed in time. If you want a vote in a second EU referendum register now! Students can register at home & term time address

Still struggle to understand why anyone without an axe to grind thinks it’s more democratic to stick with a vote from 2016 when we could find out and act on the views of voters now.

Every word true underlying why Theresa May is undoubtably the worst UK prime-minister in living memory.....

May is incapable of bringing the country together and if BREXIT happens now without asking the public if they still want it British will be decided for decades. No doubt Tories are happy to see the country as hopelessly split as they’re own party...

Nigel Farage uncomfortably trying to avoid admitting that he shells out big bucks to jet about in private planes to rail against the elite... ... is a joy to watch.

I actually can’t stand Nigel Farage & the fact that he thinks that his presence is required in order for Brexit to happen/not makes me sick to my stomach

Great then lets agree on that. Referendums are a nonsense way of deciding complex issues - but sadly having allowed a referendum to get us into this mess I suspect that if we can’t have a general election we’ll need another referendum to get us out of it.

We’ve not left yet. Ask people what they want now not what they wanted 2 years ago and act accordingly. That’s democracy not some arcane attempt to ram through something that the majority of people may no longer want now they know what it actually is.

Perhaps just ask the people to vote on the reality of an actual negotiated deal rather than the fantasy of promises that could and never will be achieved. Maybe that could be the start of honest politics...

Today is what happens when you've spent three years telling people they can have whatever they personally want for zero cost & been caught out.

Rubbish. What’s democratic about sticking with how people thought two years ago rather than acting on what people actually think now.

Would already be best of three - referendum in the 1970’s was in favour, 2016 against so why not another and best of three.....
