The next project I have in mind to look at, is to root out villainy and treason in parliament, to ensure our politicians are serving us, not private corporate interests.


Absolutely! At the next general election, We need to vote out all those politicians who wanted to remain in the EU. How absurd is it that such a person should be elected to a British political office when they want to hand Britain over to the EU? Get every single one of them out!!!

Well, my belief is that whether the politician was pro-EU or not does not matter as long as they are not complicit in under the table deals, taking bribes, involving themselves in the operations of out of control intelligence agencies (GCHQ are traitors and I want them to stop mass surveillance NOW, because they are a greater threat to our liberty than any force outside the nation), stacking the judicial deck in favour of the rich, while disenfranchising the working poor....

That's the next chapter though, and will have to wait for another day...not long though. Momentum needs keeping.

It's an eye opener however to see the media encouraging folks to think they regret their decision to leave, the same media owned by those who follow the establishment agenda to stay.

Well, that's pretty much all the press, as it was pretty much all the press that supported entry 40years ago..and that the people followed suit, even though the full facts of entry were not available to the public then.

I don't see how anyone who made such an important decision would regret their vote so shortly after the fact. They knew what they wanted going in and the ones who lost are just bummed out sore losers playing the media game of trying to tell people that's not what they really wanted.

I totally agree. My post, as mentioned before, was an attempt to take the proverbial out of the Remain side's petition to have a second referendum.

For the record - I supported the Out vote.

I think the Remainer's objections since the result of the referendum was declared completely illustrate the bullying tactics used against us proles by those who wanted to keep us all shackled to the EU.

Thank goodness people stood firm against the onslaught.

This is an opportunity we cannot waste.

This is the time, the only chance we have, now while the democratic system is still visibly functioning, while people remember that their voice can move things, can change things, if only they are prepared to utter their will.

Well half the voting people did, (though which half it was that didn't stand firm is a matter of debate
) Anyway, like I said in another thread, the referendum means nothing until it is voted in by the house of commons...and that'll be fun, since there is a serious amount of pro EU MPs. If say they resigned en masse, what's going to happen...a general election? if so what good will that do?

I don't think people realise yet just how much Cameron has fecked things up.

The Brexit will only succeed if the next PM makes it succeed.

That is going to be the pivotal moment.

Who the UK elects next will determine the issues with Northern Ireland, Scotland, etc.

I am friends with someone who is a member of a political party and he shook his head when I told him the news. The pound drops to it's lowest value in 31 years in a matter of hours-that is no coincidence.

The rest of the world warned of the economical and financial ramifications but the voters didn't listen and now others will have to suffer.

Tories r in power with 37%of vote. Trust me its not in there interest to even try. The public has spoken. There will b all out civil unrest if they deny the result. Even the remainers will relise then we r in a dictatorship. Uk were all owed by nwo to leave n not rig vote as euro may collapse n if does they, ll go to plan b a world war and supposed winners will contol whole world with one currency. N the public wil think the opposite. It may b china win, but there pupperteers wil stil b telling them moves to make. Uk is diferent to other euro countries as we r masonic temple and our royally is the ultimate elite controlling usa, Canada, australia. And probz alot more we r arent told about.

surely part of the regret is when they were told after the results came in that the money saved may not go to the NHS, which was the big campaign promise

politics as usual

I'd agree. While I don't doubt there is definitely some media spin going on, that doesn't mean that there are not genuine reasons for some voters to regret their decision.

Another example is the proposal of the immigration points system, ultimately implying that immigration would be reduced.
Tory MEP Daniel Hannan (Leave campaigner) has now said that people expecting a reduction in immigration will be left disappointed.

IMHO, That's 2 very valid reasons for genuine regret. Remember, the vote was extremely close, and some of those final decisions made by the fence-sitters out there will have been swayed because of these NHS and immigration promises.

On a side note, I've already seen some pretty negative/bashing comments made about the fact Scotland may have a 2nd Independence vote, some of which are made by very vocal Leave supporters. I have trouble understanding why they seem so affronted by the idea, considering their perspective on the BREXIT vote.

Whats good for the goose, and all that.....

I don't know if there really is a big number of regretters, but the #Bregret hashtag is trending on twitter and mainly causing some laughters. Though I expect some awakening when people realize that their problems are not solved like that, because they voted Out.
It also seems very exaggerated to me to say the UK got "independant". They were a souvereign state anyways and probably most problems are homemade and not Eu related. The internal changes, TrueBrit mentioned, are surely more important for the UK (and others in their own countries).

For the relations to the EU in the future we have Switzerland and Norway as examples. It works well. But the UK cannot keep all the positive sides and deny the negative sides. It will be a give and take situation on a new base.
What I fear - and already see here - is that the British still will accuse the EU for everything in case they drive the car into the wall.

On a personal note I am a little sad to see a friend leaving in anger. I would have preferred to work as a team to improve the EU.

I think the issue is, that any state as large as a European Superstate, would only ever have been a good thing, if it had no legislative control over its segments what so ever, making it redundant.

It's citizens are not its masters and never will be, because the drive to centralise power always comes from a desire to have more of it, not less on the part of those administrating it.

More power in less people's hands is the opposite of what a freedom loving individual is after. The endgame for all of us should be to have greater power over ourselves than do our governments, and that was never on the cards in Europe.

I looked through the news and thought, if the majority voted one way why are the majority of news articles negative?

It's such an obvious give-away of the fact the media and those quoted do not represent us.

I know as a fact there are rooms full of pathetic traitor spooks making up the news. Can't say how I know without endangering others.


You can see where the fault lines lie in British politics now.

Moody's are threatening to downgrade the UK'S credit rating simply because we just might be able to get a grip on immigration. Then the politicians are saying "well, perhaps we could remain outside the EU but still have freedom of movement of workers". This would completely defeat the purpose of why so many voted for Brexit. Because they thought that by leaving the UK it would be possible to put up entry requirements.

Germany is suggesting that the UK could become an associate trading partner because they are desperate for cash and need somewhere to move Merkel's millions to.

Now that the UK can pass their own laws it's going to be easy to just say "let's allow anyone with an EU passport to work in the UK. Then a reciprocal deal could be made with the EU".

The plan was to have a United States of Europe with Brussels as the national capital, along with an EU army. The only problem is that each Socialist country has the idea of the other person paying for their lunch. So the countries who had paid for aircraft carriers would suddenly find their vessels commandeered and captains with political connections assigned to them. Lobbyists had also migrated to Brussels in order to campaign for things like a ban on incandescent light bulbs and a ban on high power electrical appliances.

Now listen carefully, especially all you Americans. The whole of the UK has NO BILL OF RIGHTS, that was one of the carrots the brexit people promised, but I'll come back to that.
If any of you care to read the vaunted Magna Carta that is held up as a "british charter" it has NO MODERN RELATION TO THE BRITISH PUBLIC. It's main ,and only reason was for the protection of the ruling classes, the barons and earls, no the normal man in the street.
Now the only protection the British people had was from the EU in the shape of "The Human Rights Act" and the only reason that this document was lambasted was because those in power now realised the power it gave the ordinary man in the street so they allowed it to be used in nefarious means so they could say "look at all these criminals using this act to escape punishment and not only that they are using the tax people pay to fund it".
So yes you've fell for it hook line and sinker and now IF you we get a bill of rights (as another promise if you voted out) it WILL be in their favor and I can guarrantee it will not be in the peoples favor.
All this BS the majority of you are spouting about immigrants this is another grey lie the brexit people perpetrated. The majority of people were not worried in the slightest about EU workers coming to this country BUT the whole thing WAS about MIGRATION. ie those people that have no right to be in the EU countries never mind Britain and if you can't understand that the whole migrant problem makes no difference if we are in or out of EU as these migrants do not respect ANY borders and if you think the Channel will stop them think on this they have already crossed the Med so the Channel will just be a river for them.

the voters of the UK were subjected to a negative media campaign for months.

I admire their refusal to be intimidated.

the stay in the EU side was represented by politicians who have no credibility, the reason they lost.
