We should ignore referendums until you get the result you want because people don't understand what's going on as much as you? I call bull# on that one, that is a very arrogant view and arrogant people are usually full of crap.
If you want to go around ignoring referendums in a democratic country, then it is you who doesn't understand what is going on here, you should stay out of politics, you are dangerous.
lol! why have a referendum at all? cut straight to the chase and get
the result you want forget the democracy of voting.
And what's all this *a meaning full vote* about? I thought ALL voting was
meant to mean something?
Ahhh I get it......keep having a referendums till you get the result wanted
and then that is the *meaning full*

Actaully we do need a proper referendum.
Please explain to me exactly what you mean 'a proper referendum' and exactly why you feel the last referendum wasn't a 'proper referendum'.
The first was done without thought.
By whom and how?
I assure you, I gave it an immense amount of thought.
Lets have a proper vote with a real turn out.
What exactly is a 'proper vote'?
Why wasn't the last one a 'proper vote'?
Please give details.
And what on earth is a 'real turn out'?
72.2% isn't a 'real turn out'?
Only someone who was scared of the outcome would say no.
Only someone who can't accept the will of the people and has no belief in democracy and The Right To self-Determination would advocate ignoring the result of a freely held democratic ballot.
The funny thing is peeps dont understand whats going on here.
I'm getting pretty sick of people telling me that I don't understand or that I didn't think things through or that I'm a racist and xenophobe etc.
I knew exactly what I voted for and why I voted that way....the arrogance of other people trying to imply otherwise is beginning to seriously piss a lot of people off.
This is about the tax havens of the UK gettting audited and taxed. Thats why the rich boys want out.
The vast majority of the political elites, establishment and financial bodies all want to Remain in the EU.
They don't want anyone or anything to threaten the status quo and their control over things.
Could you please give us some examples of these 'rich boys' who 'want out'?
The corporation of London would for the first time in history be under scrutiny.
It'll be under a damn sight more scrutiny if we leave the EU, Remaining simply equates to more of the same.....surely that's a given?
Thats not how the game work
