Brexit

Fed up talking videogames? Why?

Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?

He’s probably thinking that he has a divorce to pay for and he would like to keep his MEP salary and TV appearances going.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's confident leave would lose this time which is exactly what he wants. As Moggy said he'll want to keep his salary, plus it'll be a great excuse to come back as UKIP leader again and get some money out of that.

He’s either thinking that or he is so confident that Leave would win that he would like another referendum to shut Remainers up.

I don’t think it’s going to happen though, the Tories are unlikely to listen to Farage's ideas.

Not really. The referendum was called to shut Farage up. Ever since then the Tories have been trapped by their hard right MPs and the inability to ignore the referendum that they called.

A second referendum would solve a lot of the Tories problems, but I just don’t see them doing it.

Maybe he's had the thumbs up from the Kremlin that they've managed to hack UK postal voting. Or his handler has decided that they just fancy strawberry floating around with us again for a couple of months.

If it is anything to do with Russia, then I would imagine that Moscow would be happy for us to have another referendum. All that chance to create even more division amongst the UK population, the chance of more MPs being shot, the chance to send more bots out etc etc.

It would be amazing if all of his fans turned on him (“Even Nigel is a traitor!!!”) and the Government announced a second referendum, that Remain then won. :toot:

I think he's over confident. He's wanted this his entire adult career.

I say bring it on.

Edit - Maybe the EU didn't like the hamper full of our shite British goods, and he wants to abort Brexit because of it :datass:

strawberry float that Yorkshire Tea is clearly the best option. All other tea is inferior.


Yeah let's send an example of the worst tea in existence, PG isn't good but at least it isn't just drain water.


Are you calling Yorkshire tea drain water?!! Clearly you need to get your taste buds examined.

Though Farage has probably only said this to feel relevant/cos disruption or divide within Labour; did he not learn from May's attempt to 'strengthen the grip' on the country?

Imagine if we went through all this AGAIN and then Remain won... Where would that leave us?

Not strawberry floated?

All of leave would embrass remain because democarcy said we should stay and they would respect the voice of the people.

It could be that Farage is saying this to give him an out later when we are financially worse off and the regret kicks in.

Farage is saying what Farage needs to get into the headlines, back in public eye and maintain his profile
