Every 4 years people have the opportunity to vote differently to what they have done in the past- it's called democracy.
If leave voters are so confident in the result and the way that result has been implemented they have nothing to worry about in having another referendum.
If some leave voters believe they may have made the wrong decision why shouldn't they be afforded the opportunity to vote again (same with remain voters, I'm sure some have changed their minds also)

We are all on the same side, seeking the best outcome for the UK. What do you think you will win by leaving the EU?

The Referendum was legally accepted as a valid result. Until the result is declared null and void for any reason, the result stands. We are leaving in March 2019, deal or no deal.

Paul, That may well be the legal position, although even this is being questioned now. Do you really think it is a good outcome for the UK if we leave without any deal?

Oh stop winging you sad bunch of losers.
You're just throwing the toys out of your pram because you didn't get your own way and now you're trying to force your own way
Have people forgotten that the referendum (that was illegally manipulated and had leave lie to the public) was non-binding? Of course we should have a second vote, the way this has been handled has been a travesty and anyone with even an ounce of sense can see we'll all end up worse off as a country and nation of people, all for what? entertaining a bunch of xenophobes? We're better than that.
Seem to remember remain put out an awful lot of lies, perhaps the biggest was David Cameron saying "The Government will implement what you voted for" and the country of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland voted to LEAVE the EU and not REMAIN in the EU.
How is that a 'lie'? At the moment the Government is trying to implement the result... Its very difficult because many people voted for different things..... but its hardly an example of a 'lie'.
Meanwhile the Leave campaign said
1) there would be extra money for the NHS (No one believes that now, even Leavers say 'It won't be so bad, remember the war , we got through that'
2) that the EU is undemocratic (Every final decision taken in the EU is done so by elected officials)
3) that Turkey will join the EU and we can't stop it (Every member has a veto on all new members)
4) that the EU needs us more than we need them (EU-UK trade is 44% of our trade, 13% of theirs
5) that in the EU we can affect immigration (There are EU measure to help with this but our government doesn't use them)
6) That we will be a sovereign nation again (We never stopped being a sovereign nation
Thats just 6 Leave lies for starters. Whats more they overspent their legal limit

No we didn't all vote for "different things" the vote was absolutely crystal clear and ALL sides made it clear that leaving the EU meant leaving the Single Market, leaving the Custom Union and Leaving the European Court of Justice, as well as NOT paying millions more to the EU than we get back, each week. Even the expensive "remain" booklet put out by the Tories made it clear what voting to leave meant. Talking of lies, what was said on the bus was "Let's spend the money on the NHS" - Let's is short of "let us" which is a suggestion, it was not saying "We will". Turkey is trying to join the EU, and it will happen one day. We cannot stop EU immigration at the moment, that is a fact not a lie. The EU is definitely undemocratic - they have just refused AGAIN to stop the publishing of their expenses. There's NO accountability, and they waste so much money transferring the EU from Brussels to Strasbourg each month, and it's well known that remain also spent over the limit by merging groups.
