    You're incorrect in so many ways, the referendum to leave the EU did not have options to vote for different parties. It was a binary question. A person could be a voter for Tory, Labour, LibDem, DUP, SNP, PC, SF, or whoever. Their vote was whether they wanted to leave the EU.
    Intelligent Leavers get this. They accept that it should have been a cross-party negotiation team.
    Why don't you get it?
    If the Tories lose the election or there's a hung parliament watch for the cries of democratic elections not being fit for pupose.

    He said "could" not "did". We all know a supporter of any party "could" vote to leave, but a certain demographic who support the more extreme segments of parties did vote to leave.

    Of course, he was more interested in twisting away from the simple point that it was cross party, and so the negotiations should have been cross party.
    Instead, he'd prefer to stick to his usual response of avoid the question, change the subject and accuse others of being the problem.

    Do you mean a cross-party of parties who would die in a ditch before endorsing any sort of Brexit?

    You mean like Boris did before he became PM?

    No. I mean across all parties with elected MPs in the House of Commons, the idea being to come up with the best solution that satisfies the brevity of the wording of the referendum with the reality of the task.
