... except you didn't.



I voted 'remain....but Bennetta voted 'leave', so, it was all a bit pointless really

The state of play: Could well be Liam Fox, only better looking. Or any of our ace negotiators in fact . . .

What the..?

However, Myky quoted this (dated 25th June)

http://greatworlddebate.com/index.php?topic=16169.msg378996#msg378996

Which, looking at it again, Ben edited in May. 

BEN, we need to know, did you vote remain or leave?

Basically Brexit is going to be an absolute fucking car crash and ruin the country. The Remoaners saw this, which is why they voted to remoan, and the idiot Leavers are now starting to slowly realise this. The operation now is to salvage any shred of dignity from the whole bang shooting match, and the Leavers are far too proud, stupid and self important to even allow that.

The most sensible thing would be to admit to the absolute farce that it is, apologise,  back out and start again. That's never going to happen, which is providing us with the very highest calibre of - but equally atronomically expensive - comedy ever.

Here's the Cherry on the Cake: Post 9 in the thread I linked . . .

Weyland: I'll take your word for it.

Ben: You don't need to, just look it up

yes indeed, here we go again

I was baffled by the previous claims that I was a Brexiteer and so searched back through all the posts to see why (note this was long after the first incident) and found the offending post which I then amended to save any further confusion

That was a total stupid error on my part which I can only put down to senile diminution of abilities

To make it perfectly clear once and for all

I voted REMAIN benetta voted LEAVE

I still think that we should have stayed in - it would certainly have been better for us in the short term - but I am hoping that, long term, we will survive and prosper

Perhaps this is why some think that I voted leave - not so, I just don't want the country to go to pot just so that I can say 'told you so' (unlike some). The die is cast, we can only hope for the best now

I hope that 'LEAVE' was the right decision, but I still think I was right to vote REMAIN

Hopefully that clarifies things

Those who voted to Remain - well - we knew what we had and were happy with it.

Not all of us; indeed the most vociferous Remainer I know, an admitted Europhile, would be the first to admit that the EU urgently needs to reform.  I voted Remain because  I can see even greater problems leaving. 

I didn't want a referendum.  If people feel that strongly about it they could have voted for an MP who  did feel it right to go.  But I know that the majority of politicians were remainers, and they have more of a grasp of the reality of how Britain functions than I do.

Which leaves the politicians now responsible for negotiating the exit. In other words the dregs of a party which is already a party of dregs.

No hope in sight unless we just quietly forget the whole thing and beg for forgiveness.

Thank you, Ben.  I had a feeling that was the case, but I wanted to clear it up before this thread ran away with itself.

Maybe robust debate is no longer your strong suite, ben. So your wildly speculative and condescending attitude becomes laughable.

I couldn't disagree more; I've been known to make typing errors as well, or phrased things in a way that leaves room for ambiguity or worse.  If posters who make mistakes are rejected as not worthy of discussion we will all be reduced to composing simple sentences in one-line posts.

There's making typos, and there's stating two completely opposite facts.

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!

The positive is the Brexit folder...it's hilarious.

There is no outcome yet, we've not left. Roll Eyes

How about we let them get on with the negotiations and stop trying to predict?

I try to see both sides and take account of sensible responses to probing......unfortunately KI see precious few such responses from you - but I condescend to respond to you anyway in vain hopes Wink

..perhjaps I should have used the Myky defence of saying that my 'errors' were deliberate to amuse the reader Roll Eyes

For example - "BMW cancel contract as direct result of Brexit"
