The people of the UK should get another say on the result of the 2017 General Election. Why?
1. Because some of the claims made during the campaign have turned out to be demonstrably false.
2. Because the facts on the ground have changed, and we know more now about the negative outcomes of certain courses of action (Universal Credit, approach to the Brexit negotiations, dismantling the welfare state, making Chris Grayling Secretary of State for Transport) than we did then. So we would be better informed for this vote than we were for that one.
3. Because the electorate has changed, over a million people are now eligible to vote now who were under 18 at the time of the 2017 election. How can we not involved them in decisions about their future?
4. There are question marks over whether party spending limits were broken, as there were in the 2015 election.
5. Because we're even less happy with the result now than we were then.
6. Because we need to trust the people.
7. Because we only knew general details about Conservative policy at the time of the election, and they've gone and done things which weren't in their manifesto. Like teaming up with the DUP. Which we didn't vote for.
