Re: 51.89% vs 48.11%

is not a resounding victory and its certainly not "the Will of the People".

But it is a greater proportion of the electorate than any government who signed the various treaties that got us into Europe ever got.

If you want to halt the decision on that basis you have to also accept that the original treaties were democratically invalid as well - and in fact there is a very clear legal position that the act of taking us in, in the first please was Ultra vires for a UK government, and de facto treason.
