I found the counter petition online....it has 2500 signatures.


Which means precisely nothing. The side that's upset is always gonna be more vocal. If they undo the referendum, you'll see a big petition for the people who won the original vote, who will then be rightfully upset.

Well, this is what happens when nations become divided and split right down the middle.

One side is generally apt to take the huff because they feel they are somehow being miss represented.

Thing is where Brexit is concerned, just about everything and anything has indeed been miss represented, reported inaccurately, and lied about even quite blatantly, ignored by the very same people, we the people, supposedly elected into power to represent the wishes of the people.

Its a complete and utter travesty, i mean what the hell are we supposed to do, think, or feel?

I don't know anymore, i simply don't, and i don't think anyone does really.

What you do is you implement what the people voted for. There's no provision in their government, to my knowledge, that if a vote only passes by x margin it's illegitimate. The Brexit crowd won, fair and square. If it doesn't work out, in 5 or 10 years, maybe you revisit the issue. Just undoing a vote because some people don't like the outcome is not okay, I don't care what the circumstances.

Perhaps that because they already voted.... And won.

They did not win fair and square the told lies on the sides of buses for one thing.

The percentage is a problem, the split and division amongst our people, simply does not go away, its still a problem.

And look at what the politicians have done so far, hows that supposed to instill any confidence in there ability to govern any better or effectively after Brexit?

When the cannot/will not/refuse to even implement/accept a plan to bring about Brexit!

It simply crazy, and it's getting crazier as the days grow shorter.

There's always incorrect information spread from both sides of any political issue. That doesn't change the outcome of the vote. They lost. Time to put the big boys pants on. Adulting: it's only as hard as you make it. Just accept reality, it becomes a lot easier.

Why do you keep proclaiming we were lied to??

We voted to Leave or Stay.

That's it. The majority voted Leave. End of.

Because we were lied to indeed, multiple times, again and again!

Are you proposing that we were told the truth?

My nation voted to remain.

If i lie to you, and you act upon those lies, am i not also to complicit and to blame?

End of nothing, there is no end in sight, that's the real contention.

Do you see the MP or May accepting reality?

How are we supposed to swallow there bullcrap if the even refuse to shovel the stuff?

They are acting like children and you expect the remainers put on there big boys pants, when those in Westminster are all wearing nappies?

Accept whos reality the babies who are apparently in charge?

Aye, that makes perfect sense. LoL

We laugh at Trump for chucking his toys out the pram, but our entire government have chucked their toys away and are proceeding to hang the baby out the window with one leg.

If you fall for their propaganda then it's your problem.

If you actually looked into their claims and realised it was bull# then you would have made a better decision.

Just because we voted out doesn't mean we're thick and didn't understand the consequences. We weighed up the pro's and con's and decided #'em.

'Well, this is what happens when nations become divided and split right down the middle.'

not quite the full disclosure there andy, bad patient! for something to become enshrined in law
which was conceived on a 50/50 split, yea civil strife and general smelly streets and foul odours
will abound.

ours being and found in law was 50% plus one vote for the winning side. referendum was
legitimised by all parties in both places by the fact they enshrined in law a statutory instrument.

i witnessed some smug looks on the majority of euro-loving political dandies in the run-up
to the referendum lol.
house of commons overwhelmingly (all political parties) voted for the withdrawl bill. that
statutory instrument, a most precious document which deserves the highest of regards whether
one is butt-hurt or content, is slowly becoming defrocked and i would like the entire netverse to
be aware of this.


'Its a complete and utter travesty, i mean what the hell are we supposed to do, think, or feel?'


complying with enshrined law is a good starter rather than scrabbling for get-outs.
consider a possible future realisation that the actions of the remainers played into a propagating pan
european wave of perpetual austerity pensions, social(begging) benefits and low-wage harmonisation.
socialisation of debt and privatisation of profits. giving a big thumbs up there for future peasant
bashing!

just cannot remember off-hand how many thousands of tax-free offshore
accounts are held by the eu project and it's operatives. lol buckle-up for 'call me tony' supreme
commissioner/overseer and many other characters wishing to surf over to the three organs who may one day
thank you with a postcard for keeping the project alive long enough for the repealing of social
betterment laws and a hardening of the criminal code to maintain social order.

at the very least getting rid of the school bully left quarter to take on the classroom twat lol!

happy days are all ablaze f.

Well as long as "They" are smiling all the way to the bank, and in the bank.

I don't imagine they care one way or another whilst our days are happy or not.

Happy days for some, and for the rest of us slavery and indentured servitude as usual.

Need to get to my scratcher now, I'm up early tomorrow.

A bit ye all fair evening.

Thanks for the link. Informative. I did not know about how such a small % of Brit businesses had any trade arrangements with EU businesses. Nor how lack of any trade agreements with the rest of the world does not prevent British businesses trading with businesses in non EU countries.

That's the problem mate. The young are influenced by social media and friends. They go with the flow rather than thinking for themselves and sticking out as an individual.

If the UK was that invested in the EU we would have joined the Euro currency trainwreck.

Over the last 20yrs the PC brigade have ruined this country because now when we voice an opinion we are racist or bigots. The truth is we try to be honest and get shouted down. It seem to be whoever shouts loudest wins. In the real world the person shouting the loudest is usually the village idiot.

Sorry mate, but doesn't matter whether its The Tories, Labour, Lib Dems and the bloody SNP they all want to stay in the EU.
There is a small minority of MP's who are pro-Brexit and an even smaller number who wish to abide by the result of a democratic vote.

To 'blame' Brexit on The Tories is simply wrong - and I despise them with a passion, but accuracy and honesty is important.

The FACT is that the British people voted to leave the EU....much to the annoyance of the political elites who wish to maintain the status quo and their control over us.

That is why they are trying their very best to undermine the democratic process.

I found the counter petition online....it has 2500 signatures.


That's because 17.4million people expressed their opinion in June 2016 and feel no need to partake in an absolutely pointless online exercise that carries no weight, no relevance and absolutely no credibility.

Why would an online petition with only one option supersede the result of a nationally held democratic referendum?

Its probably the most ridiculous justification I've heard - and I've heard lots - for ignoring the result of a referendum and under-mining the whole democratic principle.

I have to say I think that the petition is probably hit it’s peak, would be shocked if it goes over 6 million

I wonder if remainders will want to overturn the next general election as well?


The ironic thing is....EU membership means you will have zero say... Zero chance to protest.

Sanity is charging forward.

petition.parliament.uk...



That's about 10% of the UK electorate and less than 1/3rd of the people who actually voted to leave.
I think it is a good minority representation of the traitors in this country who want to overturn a democratic vote and have a do over. The vast majority of even remainers have not signed it.
That's even IF you pretend that people have not voted more than once and foregners have not voted.

We don't want a minority of Europhile traitors to make decisions in this country, thanks very much.



Yes but then you have to bear in mind there are those that don't use the internet or social media, and then there are those that do use the web who haven't signed the petition because it's not like a proper vote, unlike elections I have not seen this petition mentioned much on the news, and of course no mail drops or TV ads.

5,438,259 signatures and rising is a hefty figure for an online petition.
