The Mayor of London has called for a second referendum regarding the UK leaving the European Union but what does this mean for democracy and the majority?

On June 23, 2016, just over half of the people who took part when the question was put to the nation voted to leave the EU.

No matter how small the gap between those that wanted out and those that didn’t, can we now justify going against the majority and telling them that they were wrong?

Sadiq Khan said residents no longer know the future of their country and suggested that coming out of the EU is just going to damage the UK, and so the people deserve another chance.

It surely cannot be democratically viable to go against the majority, no matter what the vote is or how big that majority is.

Whether you voted to leave or to stay, to undermine the system because the UK didn’t choose the ‘right’ answer is to tell the majority they are wrong and cause more trouble in the future.

Agreed, we don’t really know what is happening at the moment no matter how much we watch the news.

I don’t really think the politicians know exactly what is happening. Danny Dyer recently called David Cameron a t**t for giving us the vote then running off when it got tough. Love Island stars, among many other people, don’t know anything about what it means, but surely this is the fault from those above thinking they would get their own way. So tell us what happens next.

My question is: What right does the government have in a democratic society to go against the majority? What was the point of the vote in the first place if we just get a new vote because some people got stroppy because they didn’t get their own way? Is this a case of the minority throwing their toys out of their pram because someone said no?

I think the government needs to start acknowledging that people voted ‘out’ because they were unhappy, something needed to change so they politically took their stance. It is surely a time for the government to accept what they have been given and fight their hardest to make it work.

If we had voted to stay in the EU, what would that then have meant for the minority that said out? Would we have be pondering a second referendum then?
