this is quite a big moment for twtd: you've changed your predicted outcome a little. food for thought.

Not so.

I'm actually consolidating my position that we'll never leave the EU.

If "Brexit" ever is claimed to happen, the decision will be quickly reversed and we'll remain in the EU as ever.

But if we left and wanted to go back there would be more requirements , for one we would have to replace the £ with the EURO.

OK, you have your views which, I gently remind you, are at odds with the law.
Given the way in which the HoC works can you tell us how the law will be changed?

I imagine that's CiL's point, but its also why the leave vote is so damaging - we already have the perfect mix of in/out.

Governments don't preoccupy themselves with inconvenient things like the law.

Let's see how things work out.

This government isn't beyond breaking laws it doesn't like BUT the law which says the UK leaves the EU 29/03/19 is one they like
It is also EU & International law
15 days isn't long to get it changed
There are plaenty of RW MP's that will talk out any debate

A bigger concern is is this mob can't come up with any competent agreement why would we want them to take us to the next stage?

Agreed. The current position is the best compromise between Leave and Remain too. As it takes into account emotions but also common sense and value.

We'll never negotiate a better deal even with good negotiators.

That's a distinct possibility.

Under the banner of democracy she'll batter us out of Europe, but not for long.

On leaving Europe there'll be chaos at customs with basic supplies (foodstuffs and medicines) not getting into the country. There'll be chaos in society as a result.

May, if she hasn't already stepped down, will resign and a General Election will be called.

The democracy loving masses will start saying stupid stuff like "we don't deserve a democracy".

The new government will win on a "back in Europe" ticket and things will improve again.

The electorate with feel appropriately chastised, Remainers and Brexiteers will hate each other for decades to come and we'll thank our leaders for pulling us out of the mess we got ourselves into.

We the people are sovereign, not parliament, but that will change if not in law but as a generally accepted belief.

Job done. Brexit never happened. Less power to the people.

Long live democracy.

The Tories were democratically elected once when the Poll Tax was in their manifesto - and look what happened to that! :-)

I can.*

What I find hilarious about Brexiteers is that they usually downvote my Brexit themed posts which they interpret as pro remain (or scaremongering).




*I should point out that I didn't vote in the referendum because of ineligibility , but I would have voted for Brexit.

I identified the whole referendum as disingenuous from the start because I couldn't see a leave vote ever being honoured. I want the fake democracy we have in the UK to be visible to everyone. It won't of course.

You haven't been following the activities in the tory party very long have you?

Despite being defeated X 2 they are going to have another go before 29/03/19
The public are not allowed to chnage their minds tho'

It's Ok for you you won't have to suffer the problems brexit will cause - don't tell me you don't know what they are

You think Brexit is a Tory plan to take Britain out of the EU for the benefit of a few wealthy Tories at the expense of everyone else.

I think Brexit was a disingenuous smokescreen to actually bring the country closer to Europe especially with regards to the military and policing.

Let's see what happens.

That's far too complicated for me to cope with. I just want to carry on blaming Cameron, Farage, Johnson and ignorant disenfranchised plankton who happen to be a bit racist.

Ergo, to make it simpler for myself I'm only holding those accountable who actually voted.

Loving your spelling & grammar though.

But part of his manifesto of which he was elected? Poor take


More people voted against Cameron than for him in 2015, he was the only party (plus UKIP I believe) that campaigned for a referendum - the vagaries of the FPTP system meant he got a majority. Interestingly, when looking at the people who voted Tory and UKIP, and those who didn't, there was a 49.9/50.1 split. So it was very even in the "popular vote" - really surprised that no-one from the Remain side looked at those figures before they started campaigning and thought, "This isn't an FPTP election, it's a popular binary vote - we've got a job on our hands here!"

48% of people voted to remain, 46% of people voted for Trump.

You might need to relocate again if you’re looking for some pure democracy.

The UK is a representative democracy, the referendum should never have happened. That said, I actually agree that to go against that vote, without asking the people at the very least, would be a mistake.


Another poor take.

They've already asked the people. This has nothing to do with how the US political system works and I can't vote in America anyway.

Sure, but there's zero consensus for how we leave so it's all a bit academic.

Don't massively disagree but the point remains!
