It’s Saturday so the Mail on Sunday now have control of the website

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5186797/Britons-Remain-Leave-10-points.html

Britons 'back Remain over Leave by 10 points' according to new research as difficulties over Brexit continue


I really wonder how different the vote would have been had there been just a few different editors in charge of some papers.

Finally the workers of this country will be free to work 80+ hours a week!

I mean everyone could opt out of the WTD if they wanted to, but post Brexit we can force extra hours on them!

Yay!

I guess “taking back control” really meant that the upper classes would be taking back their control over the peasants. :datass:

The working time directive already allows you to work as much as you want; it's employers it restricts by stopping them setting the minimum number of hours too high. Getting rid of it takes power away from employees and gives it to employers.

So strawberry floating stupid.

Proper British employers! Employers get the power back to set proper British working days, proper British overworkedness for proper British workers!

Proper British businesses know what is right for proper Britishness!

Non-voters were always heavily on the side of remain. The problem is they are well, non-voters. It doesn't matter what they think. I think if there is a 60% lead for remain we should push for another referendum. The polls need to show an overwhelming anti-Brexit sentiment before we can risk the divisiveness of rerunning the whole awful thing.

Of course it matters what they think. Not voting doesn’t make you a non person forever.

Lets be completely honest though, that is not really a good argument against. If they had an opinion they should have voted last time. It wasn't like it wasn't abundantly clear how important the vote was.

I have much more concern with those who were unable to vote on their future.

It’s a damn good argument against if 60% or more of the country would now vote to remain. Whether or not they voted in the referendum, they are still citizens who are allowed their opinion.

If you exclude the non voters from the last referendum then you’ll really struggle to fight Brexit.

But a massive demand for a second referendum would rely on them changing their minds and stating they WOULD now vote.

Not voting is stupid, I agree, but it shouldn’t mean those people are voiceless forever.
