Anyone that doesn't think Joe Public is a bunch of dumb monkeys, is a dumb monkey.


"Monkey killing monkey killing monkey
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs,
They forge a blade,
And where there's one
they're bound to divide it,
Right in two." -Tool

The EU isn't really that great anyway. Most countries would never dream of giving up powers to a foreign body or another layer of government bureaucracy made up of self serving aloof idiots in Brussels.


This seems to be one of the biggest problems. There has been so much misinformation about what it means to be in the EU in the first place that now people are finding out some of the truths. they are really regretting it. For the most part the EU just sets directives that we choose to follow or not follow. What we should have done was got got rid of Cameron and find someone else who would choose which directives were better for our country.

When we have left the EU we will no longer be able to manufacture something and just sell it to anywhere in Europe. This is going to push production costs up. Many businesses wont be able to afford to make different versions of things for different countries.

The UK has always been a sovereign state, we didnt give that up to be in the EU.

The UK law is now going to be massively overhauled in a very short space of time. Parliament wont be doing this like you would expect, the government will. So you can be sure they will be changing everything in their favor and not ours. Almost like it was planned...

The EU is essentially under the Articles of Confederation. Were the US States still sovereign under those terms?

Your American pal is a fool. UK was never a slave of the EU. If it had been it would have been forced to use the euro, they would not have had representation in Brussels, nor would the PM been able to negotiate a new deal with the EU months before the referendum.

But good news leaving means they will more then likely have to still have to follow a lot of EU rules about immigration and free movement of people to stay in the EU trade market, while loosing the voice they had in Brussels.



I am not so sure about that, our small business owners and industry where totally at the whim of the EU that does me we where slaves. Do you not ask yourself how much further forward would the UK be. How many Brits actually benefited from a free movement policy?. I believe there are only 1.4 Million Brits in other EU countries and many of them will be retired. We was getting used with a one way door. Do you not think the Pound was kept as a get out if the Euro really went to sh1t, it was far easier to transfer large sums to the UK banking system than say to Switzerland.

Check out the absurd hoops people had to jump through in small business and see how much it has cost us as a nation.

Personally, I'm really so very angry about all this drama. The people demanded a say, a referendum and wanted to put their cross in the box. They got it. They didn't like the outcome. They cruised all over Facebook moaning and name calling. They wrote to the papers and they cried buckets and prepared a Petition. They got democracy and rejected it. Now they are making up ridiculous stories of doom & gloom instead of looking for the good that could come out of it.

If there was another referendum and it was the same result, would they all cry for yet another? What if it was a draw? Toss a coin? Its not "best out of three" lads & lasses its democratic process

Should Parliament yield to these few and refuse to ratify the result....I shudder to think what may happen but getting my V for Victory mask ready

I had to think about this for some time. Funnily your decision is very good for the Union, because it is some strong critique. But after all you decided to be out. And out is always a bad position.

And out is always a bad position.

Bad for East Germany?
Bad for the Baltic states?

Dunno what you expect me to say. I would like to be a team player. Britain's way is just the way of the typical male who does not want to take responsibility for his child.

I don't expect you to say anything, unless you want to make a very vague statement more clear.

The EU is the child of the UK?

Welcome to the regressive left way of thinking, it didn't go our way now we will make as much noise as possible to try and force the matter. A vote out of the EU was also a vote against this way of thinking also.

The people that are upset are simply scared to go at it alone, I actually feel now we have a responsibility to push forward and innovate, I think people have so little self confidence that they need a BOSS (The EU) to dictate every move. Well we now have our freedom and if we mess it up we have no one to blame but ourselves.

The main people that wanted in..

Leftist liberals...Anti Rational thinking

Social justice warriors... same as above

David Cameron...Ultimate (Blow up in ones face moment)

The cotton wool generation...Oh crap we now have to be responsible for what we are doing

Scotland... (Overall majority, but still 40% wanted out)

N. Ireland... errr

London.. The liberals paradise of multi cultural soup with no identity, little wonder why people who visit often say never again (After they see the sites). I live there hate the place leaving very soon..

Sarah Wollaston... I guess the EU job offer may not be there after all, good call.

All these people that want to stay in the EU simply head out now to whatever EU nation you want, its open border at the moment anyway and submit a application with the local authority, oh and shut the door on the way out.. I have a feeling the UK will do just fine without you..

For the people that want in suck it up over the next few months and lets get a plan ready to put the UK where it should be..

Again, very obscure and lacking any meaning in the context of the discussion.
Please elucidate.

I would like to understand your position myself. I think, we are better when working together,
The British decision is very hard to follow. It is like a very bad situation at home. Divorce, as many say.
I would prefer to have you in. That`s all.

I never was "in."
I live in the US. I had no part in the decision of the UK to be in or out. I can only respect a legally arrived at decision regardless of my personal opinion of its effects.

Yes. I had no say in the matter.

I'm getting the impression there may be a language problem here though.
