All we've had is an election called by a woman who said there wouldn't be one, who lost a mandate that she already had, for something she said was a bad idea in the first place, at a cost of £1.5bn, given to a bunch of nutters who think the earth is 5,500 years old, and who now have the government by Theresa May's ahem - 'enormous balls'.

The Great Repeal act is just going to cross out 'EU' on laws and replace it with 'BRITISH', and the Tories are quite intent on driving a race to the bottom instead of nurturing the country. It's being run by utterly incompetent fools - look at David Davis the other day - turning up to the first round of negotiations without even a fucking pen. At every turn those negotiations are failing - hardly surprising - the EU has a crack team of negotiators from all its countries; Britain has a man who proudly proclaims that his initials are a bra size.

We had strength, fraternity and influence in the EU, which we've sacrificed because morons hate foreign-born children - Brexit is now about damage-limitation rather than celebration.

It's reduced Britain to a laughing stock - even in the eyes of America!  Who voted for Trump as their president! Even the Americans think we're idiots! Fucking hell.

Is anyone here brave enough to tell us why they voted for Brecit, or are you all too embarrassed and frightened still?

Come on - I won't laugh (I will laugh, because it's absolutely fucking risible, you morons).

Yes, you'll laugh.  And then you'll call us bigots and racists, because that's what you do.

If you're being bigoted and racist, yes, I will. There's no need to be bigoted and racist about it, though.

Calm down dear, you'll mend up wetting your pants again if you go on like this

When exactly did we have "strength, fraternity and influence in the EU"?

Thought we were always a laughing stock

btw Have you looked at the BMW thread - seems you were wrong.

Is that what has upset you?

What would be the point?  Why not just reverse the 'democratic' decision and remain in the EU?  Because if there was another referendum and the result was still Leave, it wouldn't end there.  The Remainers would be calling for another one and another one ad infinitum.  And if the result was Remain - well, you'd all have what you want anyway.  Grin

A life raft for politicians who cannot agree,and a rethink for those who voted for the suicide of the uk,a second referendum is not overthrowing the democratic process at all,you can still vote which way you wish,your another and another ad infininitum remark is nothing more than a straw man so often used by Brexiters,and don't forget,the vote was almost 50 50,the majority like the original vote back in the 70s, needs to be more,whichever way it goes if it happens,just my opinion,but I refuse to fall out with anybody over this Smiley

You're right to put democratic in quotes - it wasn't a democratic decision, because the public weren't informed. Those who voted to leave had absolutely no idea what they were voting for, as we are seeing played out, indicating that their voting choice was based not on information, but on emotion - pride and xenophobia.

Those who voted to Remain - well - we knew what we had and were happy with it. But we lost, so we're getting over it, and enjoying watching the Brexiteers start to weep. "Invoke the spirit of Dunkirk!" - what - the greatest military fiasco of WWII? Hahahahaha - Dunkirk was a massive sweep-up operation, not a victory.

It's now all about disaster-management - there are no positives left from Brexit except fat private legal fees.

But hey - bent bananas!

That sounds like the democratic process down to a tee.

I think there may be a moral case for saying there should be another vote if it turns out that the conditions of leaving are substantially different to those expected when the Brexit Referendum was held.  But even so, Brexit will still go through as the leadership of both Conservative and Labour Parties are in favour.

Nah - it should be the voice of the demos. The demos can't have a voice if they don't know what they're on about.

Agreed. I can't think of any offhand........which is why I voted 'remain'

So, why is it necessary to invent negatives like BMW 'cancelling contracts' ... or blaming everything that goes wrong on Brexit.

Quite rightly, we pointed out that many things blamed on the EU were not in fact anything to do with our membership - we should do the same with Brexit
