Quote "anyone who voted for Brexit who then said "but I was only voting tactically, I don't really want to leave"
These are precisely the buffoons who managed to get us into this shit show in the first place
Quote "to go back on it now is to declare 'Democracy' as practiced in the UK is dead"
Too late, that has already been proved by the fact that the lying gits and their moneyed cronies managed to sway enough of the terminally hard of thinking into voting the same way as the Xenophobes and Daily Fail Readers.
Incidentally, I think that you have a poor grasp of what Democracy actually is. It isn't 'We will make a decision and never change it.' Nor are referenda legally binding.
If you take the tack that those who don't vote are happy with the status quo (spoilt papers count as abstentions) you will find that a large majority actually *didn't* want to leave.
The paper for the referendum, along with any hard information leading up to the event, was woefully lacking in any detail whatsoever, further confusing many I have talked to who are certainly not pro 'Hard Brexit'
When you consider that Farage stated before the referendum that (to paraphrase) If the vote is close, say 52% to 48% we will have to have another referendum, he shut up about that pretty quickly afterwards!
