It seems the punishment for apostasy from the EU is political and economic strangulation, I bet the vast majority now wish they had never joined in the first place.

The Tory Govt. should tell the EU to shove their " divorce bill", their ECJ and any other interventionist ideas they may hold. They should say we are taking back control of our borders "no ifs, no buts", this will mean a harder border and third country status.

Of course they can lord it over the EU with all the big free-trade deals as a small country they concluded, to their benefit, with the rest of the world.

After all "who won the war"

Do you really believe you can overturn it, like seriously come on.
All that would be needed is a second referendum which is something that Labour might be able to force if it wanted to provided its probrexit stance has changed.
On the other hand brexit could lead to a reorganisation of the EU itself scince it's maybe impracticable to expect a strict uniformity from so many different states.

It's a process that can be stopped. In a democracy the people can speak again.
If the snowflakes did manage to get a uturn on brexit (spectacularly unlikely), the streets of the UK will burn like never before.

There's absolutely zero chance of it being overturned so these people are just wasting their time.

Zero chance of the referendum result been reversed now , but the type of Brexit is still up in the air. When all is said and done I think the UK will be out more or less in name only and will end up in a position not too dissimilar to the one they were in before they left.

What part of democracy do you not understand? The referendum portrayed the UK's future relationship with the EU as a purely binary issue, (it is not), so people were not really clear on what was meant. Some 'Leave' campaigners even said that the UK would still have full assess to the single market after leaving, and the Tories are determined not to fulfil this. What is more, the Leave side told some whopping lies and misrepresented the migrant issue as a threat to the UK.
The referendum campaign was a muddled mess of misinformation but now that the issues are out in the open, are being more clearly debated and people have a clearer idea of how their jobs and lifestyles will be affected, it makes sense to hold a second referendum when people have a much better chance of making an informed choice before a final decision is made.

Finally I'd ask, if Brexit is such a great idea why are people so afraid to hold a 2nd referendum so that all doubt is dispelled?

You mean all the Little Britain types will spontaneously combust?

Wouldn't surprise me in the least.
