To Vote or Not To Vote? That Is The Question...

A decision that quite literally split the nation – the original results being 52% to leave and 48% to remain, so why, when a decision has already been made, is a revote on the cards?

On Saturday 20th October, London saw its biggest demonstration since 2003, with 700,000 protestors marching for the ‘people’s vote’ on the mess that is Brexit.

As recent polls have indicated, if a revote was held, the UK would remain in the EU. So why have voters changed their minds?

Some claim lack of information in the build-up to the referendum. Others maintain it’s the complete meltdown the country has gone into that’s scaring them. Regardless of the reasons, we could be back at the ballot box in the not too distant future.

But does the decision to allow a revote undermine the results of the previous referendum and go against the idea of democracy in UK politics?
