Well, I'd be all for it but it sets a precedent.

Next thing you know, if we don't like the result in a General Election we'll all be demanding a second go.




I'd like another go at the 1997 one, and also the one before last when I stupidly believed the Lib Dems about tuition fees.

Nothing will change for the next 2 years , in that time trade deals and terms will be negotiated , Germany does a lot of trade with the UK and us leaving increases the financial burden of the EU on her , money talks bull walks.

So you think the new solid state that is forming is going to be kind enough to keep all of the same? I'd say you fellas done and went and fenced yer selves in mate... with a big raspberry pie in the sky plan you know the other members that avent left are going to take kindly too with such sort of sanctions... at least ye aren't land locked and fly the hell out of the place to all those territories sacked in the past. Hong Kong will still trade of course being allowed their place back and well china has been puttin the screws to them as of late to come up to some standards for it... so hey at least that buy Brit means thats likely all you'll be buying if they embargo or sanction in pressure.

For one thing, nothing will change until the laws and treaties are changed.


The EU sells far more to us than we do to them so it's in no one's interests to make trade difficult or expensive. Even if they want to try and punish us, they have to abide by the WTO rules on tariff structures, so at most it'll be 5% which we can also charge on all the EU stuff and I doubt very much that the businesses and unions in the EU countries would be remotely happy with their governments if that was to happen.


There are already countries vying for trade deals with the UK so I don't envisage us lacking for either goods or markets in the future.

You know the US had green stamps at one time... I see a Venezeula heading your way, and so much party led totalitarian fall out no one is going to be smiling even though Britian has the most dentists per capita in the entire world.

Tis a damned shame, I hope all my Brit friends manage to get the hell out ASAP or become that rock she needs to power through that storm.

See, I just don't share you morbid view of the future.
Pretty much everyone I know is looking forward to the future with real optimism for the first time in absolutely ages.

At least if we mess it up it's all our own fault from now on and we can elect people with the power to actually make a difference.

What? Desert my nation like a rat?
Never happening with me, not that I can do much more than vote, protest, employ civil disobedience, even riot if it ever comes to it...but running away from my country if it goes tits up? No chance.

I voted leave knowing full well that there will be known and unknown challenges. I believe in the people of Britain and the strength of our nation to survive and prosper as a sovereign nation. What happens happens, we made the choice so working together for the future as a people is the only way to move forward now.

What you seem to miss is that every piece of legislation is voted on and ratified by national governments to.
'the eu is undemocratic' is simply populistic at best.
Sorry but your politicians have not been very honest it seems.

Well many often seize upon populist or "popular" movements to garner er I mean pander to those groups through sentiment and propaganda... it's all Trump has run on and looks no different than George Wallace trying to sing his Amazing Grace in apologetics to remain relevant.

The US is under a Rechtsstaat and the left is trying to move it closer to a Social Democracy instead of totalitarian Nazism of the police state that can occur so very easily under such a system.

a reply to: gortexMany of the EU countries can not afford to not have free trade agreements with the uk . As this is the only major reason that the uk should stay in the EU and if the UK manages to get free trade agreements with the most important countries in the EU most of the down side may be taken care of. Also countries like Australia ,new zealand, india and the usa should be looking at less bueacratic free trade deals with the UK. If the UK can get good free trade deals with europe then the whole Eu might fall apart as the free trade agreements are what is really the main benefit of the union. Bureaucracy in all its forms usually only leads to corruption and wastage and it is not surprising that the left wanted to stay as the left loves bureaucacy and control of the masses

I suppose that's in hoping no one takes a finger and disturbs the trail of ants to and fro from the mound.

Peace is a good thing, so I hope for the children's, and families sakes that have had to live for 40ish plus more years with this stuff... that peaceful resolutions and agreements can be made. But I think that was the hope of the entire EU the entire time and they just said no with the vote to exit.

Someone has said to sod off basically... well how much has others been weighing in on the US political spectrum? All of the similar ideologies run world wide border-less... all of those ideologies run world wide border-less effecting all people of the entire world.

So hey if anyone wants opinion quelled over a vote thats already been passed? Then try to say freedom of speech exists in that system in that totalitarianism that wishes to remain hunky dory with a smile like oh no nothing will change while the families growing their own children have already grown up in it and used to it and know what needs changing and doesnt... so what it needed was reforms and not lets just regress a whopping 40ish years as many of those voting for that regression or de-evolution are not even going to be alive nor have anything but grand children or great grand children... so why drag them through that pit of hell many voting to exit wont even be a part of?

It's sadistic...

Everyone needs to watch this:



HUMANITY vs INSANITY #75 : EU Referendum Psy-Op

On 24th June 2016, precisely 7 years, 7 months, 7weeks, & 7 days after the Global Financial Collapse of 29th September 2008, it was announced that the population of the United Kingdom had voted by 52/48% to LEAVE the EU ... but is this all part of the plan to bring about the FINAL DESTRUCTION of ALL European Nation States? Was this the event that Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF, was alluding to in her infamous 'Magic Sevens' speech at the National Press Club in Washington DC on 15th January 2014?


Not just this, but election rigging, privatisation, media cover up and propaganda.

I think I found the Herald Article 8th May 2016 they talk about at the beginning of video. This was not covered on any other media source, BBC, ITV etc.

Herald Scotland Concerns raised over senior Tory MP link to election count firm


A TORY MP is a director of a company that has become a major player in how elections are managed in Scotland, it has emerged. Concerns have been raised with the Electoral Commission about the involvement with Idox of former Tory Cabinet minister Peter Lilley, who is a senior non-executive director. Idox has had a hand in providing count software, including postal vote management support, among other services, for elections since at least 2012.




Three years ago, Idox said they were the largest provider of electoral management systems in the UK, covering a voting population of 13 million. It describes itself as "one of the premier election service providers in the UK, providing outstanding expertise and knowledge across all areas of election management".

You posted this on another thread. You should not do that.

However, the article is irrelevant. If there is allegations of election fraud then that would be of interest. It's a none story.
