It seems like Remainers only require one referendum to win whilst Brexteers require at least two.

Seems fair

I would have some sympathy with that view if the first referendum question was clear and gave direction as to what it actually meant.
What we can clearly define is that the 48.2% who voted remain want to maintain a full relationship with EU, and whats also a reasonable assumption is that at least more than 1.8% of those that voted leave did not want a hard brexit.

So we can safely conclude that the majority of the population do not want a hard brexit.
And this is  where your commitment to democracy breaks down, as you cant accept that a close relationship to Europe where we accept common position and standards is a perfectly reasonable democratic position to take.

Personally I would rather we had just stayed and not wasted all this time, money an effort resulting in a collective nervous breakdown about this, but here we are.

He campaigned for remain in the referendum, which almost certainly reflects his true beliefs, but the constituency was 60% leave which drives his desire to keep his job.

He told me a couple of weeks ago that would vote for the deal and that he was against a second referendum. Of course, he might change his mind. Will let you know if and when I get a reply.
