So hypothetically, what would have happened if we had voted to remain? Would we have been given another referendum a few years later to see if we'd changed our minds?

Except we know very well they'll want yet another referendum.......

Referendums are fine up to a point, but we need to be grown up enough to accept the outcome. If we don't, then the losing side will just keep demanding one referendum after another until they get the outcome they want.
