We Can't Blame the EU for This

Polly Toynbee, for The Guardian:

At least May spelled out one useful warning. When everything collapses around their ears, when Brexit proves a calamity, “It will be no good blaming the EU, responsibility would lie with this House.” And so it would – unless this House can pull back, revoke article 50 with a confirmatory public vote, and try to dismiss this whole desperate episode as a brief strange nightmare that history should forget.

The Leave Campaign also shoulders a degree of responsibility for lying.

Regardless, now that the public has an understanding of the costs and implications of leaving the bloc, a confirmatory vote is the only logical, fair way forward.
