2) the referendum is done, now we're into the implementation of what we were promised by Vote Leave. If we don't get it, it's not democracy

3) "not a single job lost" "no harm to the economy" "a few lumps & bumps" "an even better deal" "exact same benefits" All quotes from Leave

4) so that's what opposition & others should demand, because that's what was voted for There is only a minority who want Brexit at any cost

5) the majority believed the only net effect of Brexit would be up to £350 M per week back to the UK. No significant economic downside

6) either we'd stay in SM or we'd force a deal with the same benefits. So that's what we should demand, because that's what we voted for

7) if that pain free can't be delivered, there's simply no democratic mandate for the "next best thing", a damaging hard Brexit

8) to demonstrate that mandate, there would need to be a demonstrable majority who a) understand will cost a lot & b) accept it

9) that mandate for a costly has not been demonstrated, and rewriting history to pretend it does is itself a betrayal of democracy

11) but I expect the opposition parties to also demand the pain free Brexit we were promised. And to hold the government to account.

12) that's all the opposition has to do. It's clear that a hard Brexit proposition would not have won the referendum. Only a pain free one

No you don't understand. Because Brexit is the will of the people it MUST be pain free. True democracy carries no consequences.

Anyone who claims that Brexit will cost or have bad consequences for British or other citizens is belittling the will of the people

13) if it's unrealistic to expect a pain free , well, blame the Unicorn salespeople, not the public-they believed what they were told

14) in fact a majority still believe we can have the benefits of the Single Market without the "costs" - and that's what they want

15) so everyone,including opposition, should demand a pain free . What they absolutely must not do is what Corbyn's Labour is doing

16) Corbyn's Labour is in fact colluding with the Government on by a) promising a "jobs 1st" brexit illusion

17) b) also pretending "this is what people voted for" It isn't.No poll or vote has shown anything like a mandate for current painful Brexit
