I HAVE read numerous letters in this newspaper saying that a second Brexit vote would be undemocratic, the people have spoken, just get on with it even if it means a no-deal Brexit etc.

Have I missed something here?

When did democracy become a singular event, never to be repeated?

I accept without reservation that both sides played fast and loose with the truth in the run-up to the referendum in 2016.

I also accept without reservation or criticism the motives of those who voted to leave.

But two and a half years down the line, we now have much more information, both for leaving and for remaining.

When Parliament finally sorts itself out, I don’t want a second referendum, I want a first vote on the actual deal.

As arch Brexiter David Davis, the former Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, said: “If a democracy cannot change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy.”
