Should voters in the UK have a final vote on the Brexit deal?
Some of the claims made during the referendum campaign were untrue.
The claim that the UK sends £350 million a week to the EU has been
Farage, a leave campaigner, called(in May 2016)
a 52-48 win for remainers would be "unfinished business"
, while after the same outcome, called the result
"the will of the people"
People should have the right to a final vote before the deal is made permanent once and for all, now that they actually know what leaving really means.
The result of the first referendum was inevitably skewed by the constant drip feed over many years of Anti EU propaganda, lies and myths put about by the popular press.
, greatly but wrongly, 'informed' the British electorate.
It is now clear that some of the possible models for leaving that were discussed in the referendum are no longer on offer.
The Leave campaigns broke several laws in order to swing the vote.
Politicians don't always achieve their promises, which can often make their claims misleading. This was or should have been factored in by voters.
Campaigns will always be full of half truths and lies, that is the nature of politics. It is the responsibility of the voter to adequately inform him/herself before casting their vote.
A decision based on falseness, can still be a valid decision which should be respected.
There isn't a call for emergency general elections after falsehoods are made during campaigns, so there is no reason or precedent for this to justify calling for a second referendum.
