2nd referendum 09:14 - May 12 with 10204 viewsgazzer1999

For all those that are seeking a 2nd referendum are you using the upcoming euro elections as just that?. It would be a good way for you to prove a point by not voting Labour or Conservative, and instead voting Libdems as they are the only party that have said they want to stay in the EU and have a clear way forward.
On the other hand if the Brexit Party get the most votes will they accept that they could not win a 2nd referendum?

In answer to the first question yes.

For the second, it isn't quite that simple, much as the local election last week didn't mean we all want to stay after all.

That said, if Brexit party storm it, I've no doubt that the main parties will see it as proof that they need to deliver brexit.

Nine O'clock news just said that The Brexit Party are likely to be the biggest winners in the EU elections.

Also an item of on the rise of organised crime and how it is now responsible for more deaths than war and famine put together as criminals use ever more sophisticated ways of practising crime.

They will never allow another referendum. You cant dismiss 17 million votes just like that. It would cripple democracy in this country forever.

So are you saying being in the EU is the reason behind the rise of organised crime?
As we have not currently left that is how your view is coming across, and that the EU are doing nothing to stamp it out.
Perhaps individual countries should take more responsibility, rather than hiding behind a curtain of the EU which in your words is clearly failing.

What crippled democracy was the lies told by the Brexiteers.

The Green party, SNP, Plaid Cymru and Change UK have also said that they want to stay in the EU.
That bit about "a clear way forward" is actually going back - to the way it was before the referendum.
The Brexit party is a "single issue" party. They have no other policies so a vote for them is an unambiguos vote for Brexit.
It's rather clever of Farage to keep it one-dimensionable.

Cameron's naïve approach was the issue. Public opinion on capital punishment has been generally been in favour of limited reintroduction since the mid-60's. However, whenever it gets remotely close to the legislature it gets slapped down with condescension.

Direct democracy only works if people understand the complexity of the issue. Which, in both cases the electorate does not. It should never have been a binding referendum.

I know that was then, but it could be again..

Sh*t analogy. They’ll get the chance to replay them all again next season.



I’d recommend people watch Brexit Behind Closed Doors (on BBC4 I think). It’s a fascinating insight into the farce. We know from having watched the disaster unfolding over the last 3 years that we were woefully ill prepared to take this to Europe. Seeing the reactions from the EU side as this all played out is compelling viewing. Our government are political pygmies in comparison.

You do realise that when yo add in the tariffs that the EU levy on goods coming into the UK, which we collect then hand over to the EU to spend as it sees fit. The £350 million a week was untrue, the real figure is probably 3 to 4 times that amount.
"The lie" you refer to is was only a suggestion what we could do with the £350 million, pretty much what Labour says at every general election at how they will spend on the NHS, but in reality never do so.
Funny how the very tactic Labour drags out every time is the one that gets up the noses more than any. But as I pointed out earlier the reality with regards money is vastly higher than the £350 million. And we as consumers are paying the price with over the odds higher prices.

Is that like winning a general election to the paramount democratic body in the UK, The House of Commons, and then saying it will cripple democracy in this country if we have another general election in five years time?

It's exactly how democracy works. That's why governments change every few years.

Surely this also depends on whether you see this being a short-term gig until we leave or that we're not going to leave?

So there are your own priorities but then seen through the prism of what you think will play out on a national level. That's where your vote has meaning.

By all means, people can vote on a one-off situation like Brexit or as a protest vote, but too many people doing that is what's got us into our current mess.
