  1. The first referendum was advisory, not mandatory. So honouring doesn't come into the equation. The government were not bound to take the advice. It was like a huge public opinion poll. IMO a binding referendum should have required a 60% majority.
  2. If you take my opinion as gospel, then no wonder you were daft enough to believe Boris (the Lying King) and vote for Brexit.
  3. I would say within two years we'll all be very sorry we allowed Brexit to happen. It usually takes about two years for an economic policy to work its way entirely through the system. In 2016 there were Brexiters on here boasting about how much more competitive British industry was with the cheaper pound. It took about a year for the prices rises caused by the drop in sterling to hit the shops. Then they shut up.
  4. Don't you get it? I wasn't happy with the result, but was prepared to accept it, until I found out that we were getting something entirely different from what was promised in the campaign. I reckon there are millions of British people who feel the same or didn't vote in 2016, itching for another chance. I say again, what have you to lose?
  5. That's understandable given that the scuttlebutt in Washington (the sort of thing picked up by our ambassador) says that Trump only withdrew from the Iran treaty, because it was seen as one of Obama's achievements. He then appointed right wing looney John Bolton, in order to exacerbate matters further. It is said that the current stand-off is Bolton's doing. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jul/20/britain-lured-into-deadly-trap-on-iran-by-trump-hawk-john-bolton Still never mind, it'll be a chance for the Lying King to show us standing on our own feet.
  6. Snap. Except in 2017 they asked me back to fill in temporarily, so I beat you by 3 months!
  7. Maybe not on November 1st, but like the decline in value of the pound and the increase in food prices that followed the 2016 farce, it'll come.
  8. No what I'm saying is that under the EU and New Labour it had become a rarity, but under Cameron etc it has become more common, despite the EU.
  9. The referendum happened when Cameron wanted it to happen and Cameron phrased the question. As for your second point 64% of the British electorate didn't vote leave. I repeat if you're so keen on referendums, let's have another confirmatory one. Certainly after the last one, although I voted remain, I was content with the result, because I had been told, like everyone else that we would be like Norway. It was only when May and the rest started talking about "hard" Brexit that my ears pricked up. I don't think anyone voted for a hard Brexit. But if Boris ("The Lying King") gets his way that's what we'll have. TBH I don't think anyone voted for that. They voted for this:
  10. Certainly the first time I went to Oxford (the town not the Uni) in the 1970's I noticed the buses said South Midland on them..
  11. It was becoming a rarity. People sleeping rough in the streets virtually disappeared under New Labour, now it's back with the Tories. Still not as bad as it was, but getting there. Especially these last three years with the uncertainty the referendum has created.
  12. I'd have thought the answer to that was obvious. Any country who decided it wasn't getting exactly what it wanted all the time could leave, just like that, and then perhaps come back with the same ease. That's not how international organisations work. Did Cameron make it easy for Salmond to walk out of the UK?
