This #BrexitShambles is what you get when you try to force through massive change without winning a supermajority consensus. Not because those who didn't vote for it have stopped it. But because those who didn't vote for it knew it would never work.
I strongly believe that a supermajority requirement isn't just a hurdle to beat, but a safeguard against bad ideas. Regardless of the jokes, the majority of people are not stupid. They know extremely well what will benefit them, and what won't.
If politicians can't get two thirds of an electorate (with thresholds) to agree to a policy, then the chances are, the policy is shit. Leave fell 5 million votes short of that supermajority. That's a lot of people.
Trying to simply push Brexit through as May, Corbyn, and other anti-EU idiots have done was doomed to failure. The geopolitical and geoeconomic status quo is an incredibly precious asset. To mess with it, without a huge consensus, shows a contempt for the electorate as a whole.
