If I am correct in my hypothesis then I fear that nothing, not even a second vote, will ever put this to bed. It will rumble on until the older boomer leave voters die. Even if we leave it will still be the source of argument for another 15+ years as the UK tries and fails to get the trade deals needed to keep our economy going. As time passes more and more will see it for the mistake it is and the resultant pressure to rejoin will meet ever greater resistance by those unwilling to accept the truth. I think it is deeply rooted in the age demographic and this is why the second vote is resisted, but every day that passes changes the age demographic to a more pro EU more European viewpoint. For those that want to leave the sooner the second vote the better chance they have of winning it.
