      But you've got to exchange of contracts ( like the Wothdrawl Agreement ) and then you decide to back out ...... so you lose your deposit.

      Regardless, it's a crap analogy as you don't have millions of people agreeing to the original plan to buy the house.
      or many many millions voting against it either?

      It is. The democratic process is also still ongoing, it never stops, it wouldn't be democratic if it did. The democratic process may play out whereby it is democratically found that the democratic and moral obligation is that we don't leave the EU. I don't see why that is so hard to grasp.

      I think you, and others, do grasp it though. You just like to pertain a faux high horse stance that you can only be democratic if you agree that we should leave the EU at all costs, and use that as a platform to beat down the dirty remainers who even suggest something different. Which is obviously a big steaming pile of dog turd of an argument
      Democratic results are enacted in this country (for very good reasons) ... only a very special type of precious would argue this long standing UK tradition should suddenly stop because they didn't get their way.

      I don't know but Jo Johnson wasn't a member of the cabinet.

      How many cases have there been where the time between the vote and the actual implementation have been so great? How many instances where what was voted for and what will happen are so different? How many cases where most probably the population would vote the opposite given a new vote based on both the political and demographic changes?

      What tradition deals with that?

      "Is it more democratic to rely on a three year old vote based on what an idealised Brexit might offer, or to have a vote based on what we know it does actually entail?"

      Not my words footy genius, but Jo Johnson - https://medium.com/@JoJohnsonUK/why-...l-3d289f95f2bc

      'To present the nation with a choice between two deeply unattractive outcomes, vassalage and chaos, is a failure of British statecraft on a scale unseen since the Suez crisis.'

      'Certainly, I know from my own work at the Department of Transport the potential chaos that will follow a “no deal” Brexit. It will cause disruption, delay and deep damage to our economy. There are real questions about how we will be able to guarantee access to fresh food and medicine if the crucial Dover-Calais trade route is clogged up. The government may have to take control of prioritising which lorries and which goods are allowed in and out of the country, an extraordinary and surely unworkable intervention for a government in an advanced capitalist economy. The prospect of Kent becoming the Lorry Park of England is very real in a no deal scenario.'

      "Britain stands on the brink of the greatest crisis since the Second World War. My loyalty to my party is undimmed. I have never rebelled on any issue before now. But my duty to my constituents and our great nation has forced me to act."
      Each to his choice, and I rejoice the lot has fallen to me
      In a fair ground-in a fair ground -
      Yea, Sussex by the sea!

      Hilarious that these people feel so strongly about Democracy and insist it must be " Honoured " despite the fact we are driving headlong in to a brick wall.
      Fortunately, many people believe honouring the outcome of democratic elections and commitments made in manifestos is no laughing matter including large numbers of remainers. Remoaners/ undemocratic loons obviously have little respect for these democratic norms which is probably why they are such big fans of the EU.

      Brexit is being enacted and no one is arguing that this should be suddenly stopped because they didn't get their way. Are you genuinely struggling with this or being deliberately facetious? I think others have labelled you as just a WUM and I would tend to agree.
