Me too, but I see it as a (now) majority who don't want their Europe torn away from them by people with their own political agendas and those they are misleading.

A large, possibly a majority, percentage would vote to Remain as they did before. Another large percentage would feel betrayed and further disenfranchised, perceiving they were ridden roughshod over by the urban middle classes. Another percentage, we don't know how large, probably wouldn't vote at all, feeling sickened by the whole ultimately disempowering process. I would probably place myself in the last category.

Surely, surely, the only way forward now is to work in partnership and co-operation with Europe on trade, human rights etc. whilst retaining some autonomy on border control, fishing rights ect. I understand Theresa May's deal does more or less meet these criteria. What on earth is the Labour Party playing at shouting from the side-lines generally advocating chaos so they can be seen to be picking up the pieces - when they should have been working in coalition with the sensible members the Govt (there are a few) to find a solution. I cancelled my Labour Party membership yesterday as have lost faith pretty much in the entire political system that currently 'governs' this country.
