  1. I agree Sarah, I welcome this initiative and it understand that its scope had to be limited, but I feel it is a pity that some form of brexit was presumed – such a process could have shed enormously valuable light on just how much public support for brexit there really is, with good and balanced information and an opportunity for well facilitated and inclusive deliberation

  9. I am interested that the backers of this project appear to be predominantly either pro Brexit or Brexit accepters. There appears to be no representation from the Brexit rejection movement, also known as continuity remain. Vote Leave Watch and Open Britain appear at present to be Brexit acceptance organisations. I hope those constructing this experiment will take that into account in formulating their methodology. In view of the widespread belief among the continuity remain movement that Stronger In “threw” the Remain campaign, the presence of representatives from that organisation does not augur well for the acceptance of the outcome of this process among continuity Remain followers. Might those of us following this project be reassured on this point? Otherwise it undermines the validity of the outcome if “keep the deal we currently have” is not presented as part of the discussion.
