How many votes have there now been on a Brexit deal? A dozen? And at the same time an absolute refusal to repeat the referendum vote.

Weird how the British democracy works.

Not much of a Brexit if the UK has to follow the same trade rules from outside the EU and can't have a different foreign policy.

Not as weird as american democracy, where elections are funded by bribery and the person with the most votes loses.
