One reader thinks that a second referendum is in order. What you think?

Those people who are attempting to prevent a further vote on Brexit need to closely examine their reasons for doing so.

They say the democratic vote in 2016 must be the final input we all have on the decision.

It is clear that we were ill/misinformed in 2016, and many things have come to light since then that nobody considered at the time.

To deny further consideration now is undemocratic. Unlike a general election we cannot change our minds in four to five years time once we have felt the disastrous effects of leaving the EU.
