  1. Our new position in the EU

    You can check out their voting history if you like.

    And your point is? They would vote for something which would massively benefit France. If you’re a member of a choir and you won’t sing, you can’t complain no one hears your voice.

    That was because we wouldn't use it properly. Our UKIP MEP's would vote against anything that would affect the UK, even if it would have benefited us!

    The UK will carry on no doubt, but the things you've listed make it a disaster for me!
  5. As opposed to when we rejoin in 5 to 10 years time when we’ll have to adopt the euro as well.
  6. That is a shame. I suppose 1 would have indicated a coherent strategy.
  7. Indeed! Its one of two things causing their silence at the moment. 1) They are as you say, waiting for a deal to be produced and then go down the "we gave you your chance and you've messed it up" narrative. or 2) Corbyn still just doesn't like the EU and isn't really bothered about the damage it will do.
  8. oddly enough after the first referendum I was in the changing room at the gym and a group of 5 or 6 lads were talking about the result. 2 of them said they'd voted leave to stick it to Cameron and really regretted doing so. I think there were probably a few in their 20's that did that. Enough to swing it, I don't know but I'll bet there were more than a few. My real question would be, if there was to be another referendum (and it would be the third not the second), how could a better quality of debate be ensured by both sides?

    my exact quote was "while the UK is still in growth, there is a strong feeling in my industry at least, that we are moving in to a recession of period of negative growth." I'm reporting on hearsay, which is obviously purely anecdotal, people not working in the industry, be they retired or otherwise wouldn't know about it because they only know what they read in the daily mail as opposed to dealing with it on a day to day basis. But to your figures I say, what do experts spouting facts and figures know!

  11. Our new position in the EU

    yes but my suspicion is with that, they haven't changed the turnout model to that of last years general election.

    which really is the point. Most of the new voters are the youth vote. A group which are overwhelmingly remain, and difficult for Murdoch and Dacre to target. Combined with the general age demographic of the leave voters thats why traditionally they've steered well clear of wanting another vote.
  13. Our new position in the EU

    true but considering the result of the last GE where the youth had been energised to vote, probably as much by the result of the referendum as by Corbyn, and the age demographic of leave voters, an increased leave majority is unlikely.
  14. Our new position in the EU

    :-O I wonder if he really does believe that the leave majority would be massively increased!
