Democracy is supposed to be a continual, dynamic relationship between the government and the people that they represent. If people have changed their minds then they should be able to tell this to the government. That’s what democracy is for. In the words of David Davis:

Debate: Stop Brexit by IQsquared from last July
Brexit is a disaster and must be stopped. Leave campaigners promised our exit from the European Union would herald a glorious new era – the sunlit uplands of ‘global Britain’, with new trade deals signed in a matter of months and an extra £350 million per week for the NHS.
