Poll #2089484 Choices

A couple of years ago, you made a poorly-informed decision. It becomes clear that your choice is going to have dire consequences for you and everyone around you. However, you've been handed a golden opportunity to roll back the clock and reverse the decision unilaterally, effectively resetting to the point you were at before you made that decision. All you have to do is admit your mistake. What do you do?

Own up to the mistake and avert the dire consequences.
10(90.9%)
Adamantly refuse to acknowledge you have any option other than to carry on and subject yourself and everyone else to the dire consequences.

As I'm not a British MP I chose the first answer.

Owning up to a big mistake to get it erased entirely? Sounds fine.
As long as you get to retain the knowledge, so you don't just repeat the mistake/choice over and over in an infinite loop. XD

Yes, and that is exactly how this would be! *sigh*

Unlike so many people I've encountered, I'm never afraid to accept responsibility, admit I've screwed things up and apologise if necessary.

Can I recommend, please, that you run for public office? It would be nice to have more people like you in Parliament.

I certainly have firm views on how society ought to be organised. I just wish I had the charisma and strength of personality to be a politician, but I can't even be bothered to argue with my own family, never mind greedy, racist Tory scumbags!
