That'd be an interesting referendum. Their heads: 'off', or 'on', let the public decide.

I wonder would the hardline Brexiters honor an 'off' result if it went 52-48?

Surely democracy would demand that they do, even if after three years of struggling it becomes clear that decapitating half of Parliament and the Captains of Industry would have negative fallout for the country as a whole.

46 % would be happy if Farage would become their leader.

Or just an in-bred desire to be obsequious toward authoritarianism.

How about this scenario ?

Theresa May could yet give us the ultimate parting gift: a Brexit referendum

That would cause a bit of fun within the Tories.

So, bojo tops 2nd poll. I'm now anticipating some brexiteer to show up and smugly point out that none of the remain parties got any votes at all.
