    But that doesn't include people in charge never standing for election, or those elected, ignoring the outcome of a vote


    ps - who (other than you) says the electorate has changed it's mind over Brexit? Last YouGov Survey reported folk were saying "get on with it!"

    Stockpiling food and medicines ahead of 29th March 2019 as contingency in event of No Deal. What? Fake News and Project Fear surely? Well it would have been if it had been said on 23rd June 2016. But no - it is the headline of today's Sun newspaper.

    I am not saying that they have changed their minds but democracy allows the electorate to change their minds.

    We vote for a government once every 5 years. Our electoral system enables us to change our minds and vote in another party 5 years later. Once we are out of the EU the opportunity for the electorate to change it's mind vanishes - at least for decades.

    How does this show Brussels that we are dead serious over No Deal - when preparation such as this for a No Deal implies a very difficult and chaotic outcome from a No Deal - and so surely something that we would avoid at almost any cost?

    We’ve had this discussion on democracy countless times. Enacting the result of the vote is democracy, ignoring it and continually voting on something till you get the answer YOU want absolutely isn’t democracy.

    Enact the vote, then once every 5 years have another, fine.

    I didn't put you down as a Sun reader to be honest, but that does explain a lot.

    So would you have business leaders running the negotiations?

    In fact that was proposed by some Leave voters worried at having the Remainer May leading the way - as clearly businessmen would do a much better job at negotiating our terms of leaving.

    But there would have been just a little problem with putting it in the hands of big business would there not...!
