It strikes me as the very opposite of that. It sounds to me like the leavers are worried they wouldn't win a second vote.
And if the second results in another vote for leave, should we have a third? A fourth? Dammit, we'll keep them voting until they give the answer we want!

We live in a democracy. The democratic vote was to leave. In due course, the UK may apply to re-join the EU. I hope it does, and I hope that the EU gives us terms that the majority can accept.
