One reader thinks circumstances have complicated since the original vote. What do you think?

Apropos the resignation of David Davis and his number two at the Brexit department it is becoming clear that a second referendum on whether to remain or leave the EU is apparent.

I agree that the Brexiteers are concerned that the apparent cabinet plan means in effect that the UK will still adhere to much of EU policies and laws.

After two years since the last referendum issues and concerns have accelerated. Apart from the economic issues, which business groups have extrapolated, there are now serious political, military and social issues emerging. The concerns for and against the EU are now becoming apparent.

President Trump is US first, anti-Canada and Mexico, anti-Nato and anti-EU. We now are aware that the Leave campaign, according to the Electoral Commission, broke electoral law, but that the main backer of the Leave campaign, apparently met with Russian diplomats 11 times.

The security of the UK and Europe is intertwined.
