HAVING read many recent letters about Brexit, it is very easy to have an opinion.

One argument for it can easily countered by another against.

The reality is that, if we are totally honest, very few of us, including most politicians, will ever know the full facts.

If the politicians are struggling with it, what chance has the general public?

Both 2016 campaigns were poor. The Remainers did not supply enough information. The Leavers focussed on £350 million per week and immigration.

Sadly, my discovery of the customs union came, not from any politician, but at a concert from a guitarist in a 1970’s band.

He reminded us of all the airport customs delays that he experienced at that time on band tours to the continent.

His warning: "Remove the customs union and we will all be waiting longer at airports for routine holidays abroad. In a few years’ time, everyone will be begging to return to the EU!"

I am not a Conservative, but have a lot of respect for Theresa May, who probably has the worst job ever in history.

Whether you agree with her or not, she is earnest and hard working in respecting her mandate.

I can forgive her rigidity to a certain point on this basis. Better her than Jeremy Corbyn at the helm! For those with strong opinions one way or another, would you want her job?

Even if you had it, would you be able to achieve an outcome that satisfied the vast majority of people in the UK, given how close the result was?

In conclusion, I believe very much in democracy and respecting the referendum result in principle.

However, sadly over time, I have gradually come around to considering a second, properly informed attempt.

The basis is twofold; firstly, the current massive impasse and, secondly, that we were genuinely unaware of what we were voting for first time around.
