The independent body ‘The UK in a Changing Europe’ (ukadeu. calculates that had the 28 per cent those who were eligible to vote but did not in the Referendum did so, the remain vote would have been between 48.65 per cent and 52.05 per cent, thereby indicating that the country is broadly split 50/50 on the question of Brexit.

With such a clear chance that they would lose, it is therefore perhaps understandable that so many of the 34.73 per cent of the electorate who voted remain will not countenance a vote on the final package.

This in spite of none us having much of an idea of the final deal when we voted on June 23, 2016 (or now for that matter) and in the knowledge that such a second vote would be both informed and truly democratic.
