Brexit

Fed up talking videogames? Why?

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

Obviously it was going to be a Tory-driven Brexit. Why would any left-leaning, pro-Brexit voter have thought otherwise?

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!


Time for a cuppa mate then back to the picket lines with ya.

Part of the reason people are even talking about another referendum is because the result was so close last time. This would apply to any other vote if the result went the other way. If it is just a few percent difference then leavers will cry foul and demand yet further re-runs. Only with a decisive victory on one side can the matter be put to rest for good.

This is why it is no good to have a second referendum unless you can get a result to draws a line under things. If remain won 60-40 people would be angry but no one could seriously demand a third vote or ague for recounts and such.

Yep.

That’s why it’s odd to see strong Remainers like DML write off non-voters. If Brexit was ever going to be overturned in a second referendum then it will absolutely require the people that didn’t vote last time.

I posted this before but I am still seeing people saying that people in the 70s referendum didn’t know what they were voting for/only voted for the common market.

Even the strawberry floating Daily Mail in the 70s knew what we were joining. :lol:

I’d say it was 1-1 on EU referendums. We need a third one to decide the winner. ;)

This work has started, and includes a range of estimates calculated by the Financial Times suggesting that the value of Britain’s output is now around 0.9 per cent lower than was possible if the country had voted to stay in the EU. That equates to almost exactly £350m a week lost to the British economy — an irony that will not be lost on those who may have backed Leave because of the claim made on the side of the bus.

Literally gone from highest growing economy in the G7 to lowest.

Oh, and Michel Barnier has also told Theresa May that there will not be any kind of bespoke deal for the UK

The people who are angry that "they were lied to" really annoy me. They've only got themselves to blame for buying into the rubbish the Leave campaign were spouting,

Barnier spelling out exactly what May's self imposed Red Lines mean.



I'm sure Brexiteers will be calm, self reflective and considered in their response.
