While I recognise that Farage spoke for a lot of people, he was reflecting opinions held by a good few but backed by not one tiny shred of evidence. A bar room is indeed the appropriate place for his level of debate I fear
I think FlarePath should leave it there.
Sadly, johnm, you probably don't realise that your subsequent post is just as offensive. Rather than just limit your opinion to Farage, you have now simply widened it to what we know you see as a thick electorate. You are completely unable to accept that, for many of us, we voted for Brexit because we believed it was, on balance, the correct thing to do.
There really won't be any black and white outcome - it will always be shades of grey that will arise out of compromise and necessity. Much the same as if the vote had been for remain.
What is ironic is that it is exactly the elitist, intellectual arrogance that you continue to display on here that is the reason we are where we are. You are part of the problem, and will never be part of any real world solution until you open your mind a bit.
In respect of the substantive issue as to whether it is wise to have another referendum on the finalised terms of Brexit, I can't think of anything more guaranteed to frustrate any chance of constructive exit negotiations. It will be a lose / lose for certain for both Britain and the EU, and will merely add another layer of unwanted, and unwarranted, uncertainty.
