Yeah I can play with stats too.

Scotland
Ireland
Manchester
Liverpool
London
Cardif

All voted to remain

Most under 50s voted to remain

By constituency and MP doesn’t really mean much in the case of a referendum it is interesting from the point of how MPs behave but that’s about it.


What a surprise... All the places with the highest levels of EU immigration and EU nationals given citizenship.

Funny though isn’t it when you look at the majority of places that did vote to leave, mostly British.

Does that not speak volumes to you OSOTC?

Another thing - Serious question now... If there were to be a second referendum, would you be happy if instead the tick boxes were ‘Soft Brexit’ or ‘Hard Brexit’.... I am willing to lay money on it that you say no and it should still be leave or remain even though we voted once.

Surely the most democratic thing to do at this stage would be to ask the question ‘No dea/Hard Brexit’ or ‘Soft Brexit’

This wee guy pretty much sums up the U.K rather eloquently, and things have only gotten worse.




He calls it, and then some.

Depends on what you would mean by soft brexit if it was leave with no deal or leave but remain in the EEC then fair enough

Oh man this is the problem with people today.

They cannot accept what they didint want and fight for reversal.

Thats some 3rd world stuff

Respect the process , respect the decision, and live with the results.

It's very arrogant and rude

When things are so closely split, each side can seem like the were supposed go be the winner.

Peoole need to start accepting things they may not want and move on.

Sorry, did I say statistics? I meant hard facts.

UK wide referendum - every vote equal - no weighting to favour urbanites or regions.

Anti democratic bitterness of the remainers, in the regions and in parliament is why British democracy is facing total annihilation.

Tell that to the MPs. There the one arsing around with indecision behind every turn.

Scotland did not want nor vote for Brexit all the same.

And our vote counts for nothing to very little, so you can see our dilemma.

If MPs canny accept nor entertain the thing in a meaningful manner, why the hell should the people?

Tell me this don't you imagine they should have had a workable plan, at least on paper, before we even had a referendum in the first place?

That's the trouble with '''assumptions'''
They didn't need to have a 'plan' of

any sort In their arrogance they never believed for one moment that the people

would vote OUT.


Which leads me on to the arrogance of those who voted to remain ......all up in

arms and shouting for another vote of sorts, 'assuming' that the leavers didn't

know what they were voting for and that another vote would come out to remain.


As I said somewhere on these boards before the referendum that the 'leavers'

were a silent majority.
Most of the call for another vote seems to be coming

from the loud dissatisfied 'remainers'.

You mean the MP then surely?

Coz they are the ones that have made a pig's ear of the whole affair from the beginning, on all sides.

Everyone is dissatisfied or so it seems to me, one way or the other, with no end in sight to the madness nor workable solution to be seen.

4,366,791 signatures and counting, still early days too.

petition.parliament.uk...

It's pretty clear Parliament are going to take notice of this and debate it, to be fair, it's what they really want no matter what they say so is a perfect excuse.

I am a remainer, but I do like democracy and I do agree that we have voted out and that is what we should do. I still want to remain though in my heart as I believe it is the best for us to do, financially and world peace wise, I don't know where I read it, but I've heard a few times the phrase that nations who openly trade with each other etc. are less likely to go to war with each other, it would be nice for everyone to just get along.

People are out in force to show their discontent for Brexit today, that's a given.

Update: Petition numbers for another referendum have surpassed the 4 million mark, for what its worth.

Because they're all the arseholes that have time on their hands.
The rest have to work in under paid jobs so they can survive.
Give those people a paid day off to protest and see how many turn up.

So you hate democracy I see. What if remain had won and this was an implement article 50 vote because 49%? You would be on here ranting the other way.

The EU would treat the UK as a whipping boy if let back in now. I think it's a spineless move myself on the remainders part.

Absolutely nothing.

How can 4million signatures on a one sided petition count for anything when the votes of over 17million people in a democratic ballot count for nothing?

It counts for about as much as people marching i suppose.

Just a thought.

Yes, that's 100,000+ arseholes. LoL


It's Saturday UKWO1Phot, not everyone works on a Saturday, and they are perfectly free to do as they please.

Even arseholes have an opinion, or so it seems, as invalid as that may seem to you.

After Brexit do you imagine some kind of magic wand will be waved that brings about any better-paid jobs?

Still doesn't explain how people are trying to use the number of signatories of a one sided petition to cancel the result of a democratically held referendum where at least four times the number of people voted the other way.

It would be nice for someone to try and answer that in a straight forward, unequivocal manner.

I wonder if MSM will give the pro-Brexit marches planned for next Friday with as much coverage and in such a sympathetic way?
