Abstract

Reflects on the problems associated with Theresa May's statement that "Brexit means Brexit". Discusses the extent to which Conservative support for Brexit was originally to prevent loss of votes to UKIP, and how the meaning of Brexit evolved and developed in the referendum and through subsequent events. Argues that calling a second referendum on Brexit remains the best available option.
