The Dangers of Referendums

Many people are pinning their hopes of "deliverance" (for want of a better word) from Brexit on the possibility of a second referendum. They should not get their hopes up, in the unlikely event there is a second referendum, they should bear in mind:

1 Referendums are divisive, as the last one has amply demonstrated. To hold a second one will not heal divisions, but will worsen them.

2 Brexit is not a simple binary choice, yet the referendum will be.

3 The result may not be what you wish for, then what?

4 There has already been a referendum on this subject. Do you just keep holding them until you get a result that you want?
