Former PM Cameron Says Second Referendum ĎCanít Be Ruled Outí
Breitbart ^ | 14 Sep 2019 | Victoria Friedman

Posted on 09/14/2019 8:06:04 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum

Former Prime Minister David Cameron has said that a second Brexit referendum cannot be ruled out, and opposed Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament. During an interview with The Times published on Friday, Mr Cameron was asked whether he thought there would be a second referendum, and responded: “I don’t think you can rule it out because we’re stuck.”

“I’m not saying one will happen or should happen. I’m just saying that you can’t rule things out right now because you’ve got to find some way of unblocking the blockage,” he said, adding his voice to that of Remainer and outgoing Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow, who said in July that forcing Britons to return to polls to vote again on membership of the EU “is possible”.

We had an election...and the left didn’t like the outcome.

So they used all means necessary to null the election. To include destroying the bedrock/foundational institutions of society.

Until they get the outcome they want. And then expect everything to go back to “normal.”

Hmmmm - am I talking the UK or USA?

Yup. Once they get rid of Brexit, the new mantra will be “The People Have Spoken, And This Issue Has Been Decided.”

Fine. Fully implement the first one.

Then wait 40 years.

Then another referendum would be in order.

The Brit deep staters would rig the referendum this time, insuring
the outcome they desire.

Yes, just like over in Ireland with the re-votes on the Treaties of Nice and Lisbon. Typical of the EUSSR.

I tend to agree with Cameron as the country is split (I think the leavers only got 51.8 percent or something like that).

I also think any new referendum has to be set up so that leaving the EU only takes place if an overwhelming number of people vote to leave (66.7%) and the question is a very clear question. This is how it is now done in Canada after the Quebec fiasco.

We told George III to stuff it.

And we thrived.

In 1786 even George III fully accepted our new independence.

We are split in the US too. But Obama ruled for two full terms.

No, it didn’t take 2/3rds to vote them in, why should the leave threshold be higher?

Actually, in the 1975 referendum on the UK in the EU, 67% voted for the UK in the EU

Yes, however, the vast majority of the colonies were united and wanted to leave. This view was spilt.

As the Canadian and Quebec government learned in Quebec, if the vote is close to evenly split on a complex question, then in reality there is too much opposition to make a huge decision such as the break up of a country happen. Having a larger percentage (66.7%) with a straightforward question makes it much easier to leave and also discourages referendums by groups who want to leave.

David Cameron should have learned the lessons of what happened on Canada and, if a second referendum takes place, the British would be wise to follow Canada’s lead.

A second vote would forever put in doubt any subsequent election for anything, anyone.

Don’t like the new PM because he has opposition, vote again.

That isn’t true. If you as an individual don’t like the PM, petition his party to change him, like may was changed with Johnson

“If you as an individual don’t like the PM, petition his party to change him, like may was changed with Johnson.”

Brexit is not an individual and removal of the PM is written into British law.

Voting again on Brexit is certainly not and the foundation of the rule of law will be cracked.
