As a democracy we have to accept the majority decision and that's why I don't think the Tories will push for a second referendum even though secretly I suspect the majority would have voted to stay. The whole thing is a crock of shit unfortunately.
The trouble with a referendum is that it isn't reversable in a few years time unlike a general election. Only 36% of eligible voters voted for brexit and it was still quite close at 52/48. Personally I can't see any reason why another referendum when the terms are known isn't a reasonable course of action despite some brexit extremists acting as if the referendum vote was handed down from heaven on tablets of stone.
