If a democracy cannot change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy... and the further away we get from the vote without there being a solution by which to implement it, the more correct that becomes. If you are to pick one democratic decision as the hill to die on, why not anything else. The interests of the country must always be kept in mind. Sometimes I wish we were a technocracy, because this then wouldn't happen.

The candidates for Prime Minister are all (bar Stewart) apparently under the delusion that they can go back and renegotiate with the EU, when the EU have said that that's impossible. No Deal was certainly not what was voted for, so going for that is less democratic than stopping Brexit altogether. As much as I don't want it to be, because of how problematic referendums are, the only democratic way forward is another one.

The BBC have done some fact-checking on some of the claims made in tonight's debate. They have selected one inaccurate statement per candidate. Some of them are blatant untruths (making the candidate either a liar or incompetent) while others are not quite as serious.

Love that.
Boris: We can invoke Article 24 and it will be fine.
BBC: Not applicable to this situation because we won't have a trade agreement even agreed upon in place.

Hunt: A quarter of children are unable to read!
BBC: Just because they don't pass our test doesn't mean they're illiterate.

Stewart: The target of 2050 for zero-carbon is the most ambitious for top countries!
BBC: Well ACKTUALLY, depending on your definition of top countries, some countries have set their targets before that.

The environment is in reality the most important issue there is but I can't imagine that does anything other than make Stewart look the best of them. Relative of course disclaimer.
