If anyone thinks I'm that shallow that I voted the way I did because Boris Johnson said something that was written on a bus was true then they must be basing their opinion on their own mental limitations and gullibility.

Who was that?

Maybe there are at least one or two half decent human beings amongst them that have some sort of conscience.

That's about the size of it - apart from Solo, of course - his towering intellect dwarfs half the UK. Apparently. According to him, anyway.

Because the argument for having one isn't based on the legitimacy or otherwise of the first.



Its a contradiction in terms......

How can you have a second when you haven't yet had a first?

I don't think any of those in power have had any intention of leaving. We have plenty of astute political minds that should have been working on all possible outcomes and how to meet those challenges. What we have now isn't a shambles it is a scenario that has been orchestrated by those in power.
It is also conceivable that the idea of another election or May having to go is a price worth paying, anything other than Brexit. It is indeed the real 'Hotel California', no one is allowed to leave.

People today are shallow mate, hence the accusation. This is not a dig at you - i for one believe you. But generally speaking, how often these days do you hear people parroting whatever the latest internet campaign is? Without actually understanding what they are banging on about! Makes me laugh on a daily basis........

London won’t be fine. Seriously it’s the same garbage here as everywhere else.

Don’t let the comfortable aura of Westminster’s politicians and lords or the Banking hub areas of London fool you into thinking this is good for London. It’s spiralling rapidly.

Fair points.....

Its disheartening.

I'm going to the pub soon.....talk #e to my mates, play some pool, take the piss out of each other, listen to some music on the juke box, anything really other than thinking or hearing about Brexit.

Might turn the tv on about 10ish, the conversation then may get lively - not all my friends see things the same way as I do!

just thinking about it again for a minute, say we did have another referendum on EU

even if Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland all voted remain
they could still easily be out voted by a majority in England ,
how then can we ever say we are a united kingdom on issues such as these !

all anyone need do to win a majority vote is campaign hard in England as the majority of the UK's voting electorate
live and work in England

the rest of the UK will always be held to ransom by voters in England

The total number of Parliamentary electors in each of the UK constituent countries and the percentage changes between 2016 and 2017 was:

England – 38,693,900, an increase of 0.8%

Wales – 2,261,200, an increase of 0.8%

Scotland – 3,950,600, an increase of 0.5%

Northern Ireland – 1,242,300, an increase of 3.0%


So the total of Wales, NI and Scotland is 7,454,100 , which is roughly two tenths of the total voting electorate in the UK

so 3 countries in a Union with a country with a population which is nearly ten times that of them combined who vote on major issues will always defer to the outcome of England

does anyone else see a problem with this ?

woudlnt it be more fair and representative and democratic if we done it this way

any new UK wide vote

we tally up the results , so theoretically we had another EU ref
Scotland majority votes remain, Northern Ireland majority votes remain, Wales majority votes remain , England majority votes leave , so that would make it a 3-1 vote for remain because we are individual sovereign nations within a Union , so our votes should not be overshadowed by a majority who are politically at odds with each other !

if it came down to a deadlock and it was 2-2 then we'd need some other finalisation ruling which is fair. Like an formula which considers the total volume of voting electorate which took part in the vote and then scales it fairly taking into consideration that difference in electorate.

Do you think we should still implement it even if the majority of people now wanted to remain?

You have a link for that? ......... Or is it pure supposition.
