Serious question. Should "Remainers" now be referred to as "Rejoiners" ?

I also recently read an article that a poll suggested that should we have another referendum the majority who responded said they would vote not to 're join the EU. Although the figures were close something like 49% to stay out 43% to re join with 8% undecided which was interesting.

Therefore should we have a new referendum and if so how would you vote ?

Presupposes that the EU would have us back which is doubtful and the price they would demand (e.g. joining the Euro) would be untenable.

I'm not a rejoiner. I was a remainer.

I'd vote to rejoin in a flash. But I really don't want a new referendum. I lost. I got over it.

I'll bite. As a remain voter I would actually be very reluctant to have a referendum again for a number of reasons.

Firstly, the pain, angst, division and creation of open wounds by the last process will continue and never heal because the divide is so wide. Just continuing to pick at the scab will create more infection.

Secondly, if we were to vote to rejoin, the terms would be so far away from what we left on that they would become unacceptable - joining the Euro, lack of veto and lower rebates come immediately to mind.

Thirdly, the EU itself, while still a worthy venture, has huge internal issues that seem to be getting worse, such as popularism in Eastern Europe (and other traditionally liberal countries like Denmark).

Given that we have now left, there seems little point in going through it all again until we see what the EU itself is going to become in the next decade and a far better solution is to get someone competent and intelligent (eg not Lord Frost) to reenter negotiations to improve the treaty we have in so many areas where it has been shaped by blind dogma at the expense of economic and social reality.

There won't be another referendum for ten or fifteen years at least - what you'll get, presumably, is govt stepping back from "hard Brexit" in the search for a reasonable trading relationship and less damage to the economy. Eventually a govt will be elected because it offers a closer relationship to the EU, and the question will arise again.

It’s a non-question that would only talk to people who really have no idea what they’ve lost.
The UKs bridges are most definitely burnt on this option.

Which article was this?

It certainly wasn't quoting the latest YouGov/Eurotrack Survey Results.

Most of the fishermen/farmers would have gone bankrupt by then and may change their minds to vote to rejoin.

Everything depends on when that poll was taken (for instance, before or after the vaccine debacle).


Without more information, the poll is irrelevant.

Considering he has posted 68 times in 17 years, I would say that's unlikely.

Perhaps we can wait until August, for his quarterly response ?
