it wouldn't only be an angry reaction from the 52% that voted out . i voted remain but i would truly pssed if the government tried to not honour this result.
it's just a lot of BS talk, it would be political suicide for the conservative party not to act on the result of this referendum it was them that called it.
the only way the exit process will not start is if the EU offer a new deal which could then spark a new referendum. but that seems very unlikely at this stage.
