It's the next step in the blame the EU plan of deflection. It's Tory party 101.

Motion passed as expected:
Labour conference: Members vote to keep Remain vote option

Labour delegates have approved a motion that would keep all options - including a fresh referendum - on the table if MPs are deadlocked over Brexit.

It was passed by a show of hands at the party conference in Liverpool.

The vast majority were in favour of the motion, with only a small number against.

The UK is already a tax haven, is it not? It doesn't need to become more of one.

But if you don't charge the companies their share holders will have more money and they will employ the poor to lick their feet and things and so the poor will have money.

It makes perfect sense.

Just remember folks, she's not talking about income tax. Someone's got to make up the short fall in the tax revenue.

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…..

Sure the EU set out their red lines years ago, but why can’t we have exactly what we want. We won the war you know!

Tory Party 2018 - I hate the proles having the same sort of freedoms we had before because we were rich. They're starting to get the thought that maybe being poor isn't that bad, we need to remove the 5 freedoms immediately!!
