See, it wasn't all about immigration like we told you all. Yet, you have socially uneducated morons like man-student labelling anyone who voted to leave the EU a racist. He should stop hiding and come on here and apologize. Smiley


More than eight out of 10 people in the UK believe EU migrants already living in Britain should be allowed to remain after Brexit, including 77% of Leave voters.
The figures are revealed in new poll for the British Future thinktank which wants a “national conversation” on immigration as part of a comprehensive review of a system in which, it says, “the public has lost all confidence”.
In its new report, “What next after Brexit? Immigration and integration in post-referendum Britain”, British Future claims that its ICM poll confirms that the majority of people in post-referendum Britain fall into what calls the “anxious middle” – while concerned about the pressures of high migration, they also accept the benefits that migrants bring to the economy and wider society.

Cutting to the chase, then, that translates as "We now realise that voting to leave the EU was a very bad idea, and we should really forget it ever happened and carry on as if it didn't. If they'll have us."

I like the "Yeah" part.

We could always try praying for deliverance.

Since Weyland was claiming to interpret English into English I fail to see the relevance of your question

Whatever you say, Ben.

You took a post written in English, stated "that translates as" and gave a different meaning

I would suggest that that doesn't involve any foreign language and is simply your own faulty interpretation of what the writer actually said

Hence my comment that your interpretative skills are lacking and my reply as to the irrelevance of how many foreign languages I speak since there is no foreign language involved

Happy to explain for you since it would appear that comprehension is also not one of your strong subjects Wink Grin

 Cheesy. I think he meant the one that is popular with many countries!  Mandarin's popular because there are billions of Chinese people. Living in China.

It's an idiom, Ben.

Your post quoted above translates as "I haven't a blinking clue what an idiom is." No need to thank me.

I was telling it like it was.  I actually did laugh out loud.  I laugh at jokes or insults about you. And Weyland.  And Rader. And Myky. And Mr. F. 
Everyone in fact.

Except me of course.  Cool

Bollox!

The subject is whether Weyland's 'understanding' of Mr F's post was an 'idiom' or an 'interpretation'

I asked for your opinion as to which. there is nothing in there from me.

Do you ever just answer a question?
