The definition of madness

Dear Sir, — Being of a certain age, I can now look back to the days when voting was somewhat different than today. 
There were usually three main candidates, plus one or two independents. 
We had a vote; the losers had a moan and we all got on with things for the next four or five years.
In Britain now, the media is full of stories of Mrs May’s EU withdrawal plan. A fourth vote is now proposed. 
I’m reminded of a saying attributed to Einstein (and others) that madness is defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result!
