>>182838>A second referendum would not alter the EU's approach to Brexit in any meaningful way
Why? I have given you a reason why it would alter their approach, and your counter is just that they would be happy to give us the worst deal imaginable regardless. Yet we can see that the fact we got a deal that doesn't involve us giving blood sacrifices for the privilege of speaking with the EU indicates the EU were not going to completely sabotage themselves to spite us. It's really disingenuous to claim there is no difference between the position we were in, threatening to leave with no deal, and what Labour were offering, a chance for the people to reject a deal.
Giving us a poor deal (and making us look bad) is one thing, but they were not going to give us a deal that actively damaged the EU along with us - certainly not when there was a danger all sides would actually have to stick to the agreement. There has been no sign it was ever going to be the case.
>Any position Labour should have will statify no one and should not impacted its electoral chances if the whole country isn't idpozzed on Brexit
Perhaps an election shouldn't have even been called for in the first place then? If Labour couldn't satisfy anyone, then why on earth did they give the Tories an extra 2+ years in office?
You also seem to be ignoring that the country was obsessed with Brexit for a good reason - it is the most significant event in our modern political history, and was all that was discussed for about 4 years. The fact Labour chose to act like there was any other issue to base their electoral campaign around was obviously foolish.
Corbyn actually did really well in all the interviews he gave on TV, the only exception being when he was talking about Brexit - it was clear Labour were not confident in their own plans. Not being confident on the one issue on everyone's minds was disastrous, which was easy to see even at the time.
>Brexit would not encourage socialism anyway,
Baseless to think so, if a general election hadn't been pushed for we would have had no more than 3 years of Conservative Brexit before Labour could have been elected - and fundamentally changed our course.
>but electing Corbyn to do socialistic things and then have EU stop him would be a better impetus to Leave.
We were in the EU for over 40 years, this referendum was quite clearly a once in a life time opportunity.
