Javid has already suggested that a temporary (aka permanent) removal of employment rights might be needed.

The scary thing is just how little press that got and just how little people seem to care about it. Terrifying.

Then we leave.

Leavers like to pretend that Remainers just want to keep voting until they get the correct answer. But that isn’t true, we already had a vote on staying in Europe and Remain won massively. Leave then spent decades telling lies about the EU and campaigning to leave/have another referendum. And they were allowed to do it, because in a free democracy people should be able to ask for changes and further votes.

Now that Leave has narrowly won (and it is 1-1 on “will of the people” referendums remember!) they want to end the discussion and try to stop people even suggesting that the British people should have the final say on the matter.

Another referendum would end the matter, if after the last couple of years of talking, information and publicity the British people decide they still want to leave, then the matter is over. I think it would be the wrong decision, but you’d have to accept that that is what people actually want to do. It’d be 2-1 to Leave on the referendum count, there’s nothing else to be done.

I doubt the Leavers would accept a Remain vote though…..


What a sanctimonious prick.


Sure you quoted the right post there DML? :lol:

It would be interesting to expand the "Don't Know" category in these polls into:

"Don't Know - I haven't thought about this issue enough or simply can't think what my preference would be right now"

and

"Don't Know - I literally don't give a gooseberry fool about this issue"

I think a lot of people may fall into the latter camp.

I think there should definitely at least be a separate "Please don't ask me I'm not qualified to make these decisions" choice

That'd get 98% of the vote though.

So yet more time is wasted whilst the press waste their time and clear the air of this gooseberry fool idea and obvious attention grabbing tactic that they fall for hook, line and sinker every time.

Great.
