Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Most of the populace no longer wants Brexit, so it's not fair to blame the majority of the British people for the beliefs and actions of a noisy fascist minority.

Doesn't look obvious to me: many polls show a majority for Remain, but not by such a wide margin: 12 percentage points at best. We're not talking a 2/3 - 1/3 majority (and for some polls, the gap narrowed recently to 5%). I remember that the polls were predicting a clear Remain majority for the 2016 referendum.

If anything, the British society is still very divided by the issue: it is more than a fascist minority.
Would the present Remain majority survive a second referendum? This would turn into a heated controversy about the establishment respecting the results referendums in the first place...
