Re: What a horrible waste of time and money
VulcanV5 as often now reported, it was a leaver who set up a petition to parliament for a vote to require a bigger majority to be valid. When they thought they'd lose by a small margin. And Farage himself who'd said that a +/- 2% vote would need a new referendum, in that circumstance.
But yes, I'd have to agree, more of us should have thought about this beforehand. On both sides.
