Re: Brexit....or in.

I can think Farage is a disingenuous twat and still believe the UK will be better off out of the EU in the long run. Even though the only workable deal with the EU is worse than staying in? Given that no ideal is unlikely to ever actually happen. And that the reality of leaving means we desperately...

Re: Brexit....or in.

And again, the referendum is only 'ill-conceived' to remainers because it didn't go the way you wanted. You think it was a well executed referendum as a process? The fact a majority voted against continuing on the path we were on shows it was absolutely the right thing to do. You're being hypocriti...

Re: Brexit....or in.

I'm not impossible. Just pointing out a basic fact that remainers obstinately refuse to accept. There's no way remaining in the EU upholds the vote the leave. And again, the referendum is only 'ill-conceived' to remainers because it didn't go the way you wanted. The fact a majority voted against con...

Re: Brexit....or in.

RTT your logic seems to be that because the leave campaign wasn't part of parliament they therefore have no relevance when it comes to the result and what then happens. What you seem to be stating is that on the basis of calling a referendum and the government issuing a leaflet that with that alone...

Re: Brexit....or in.

But your argument makes no sense, yet again. Perhaps if you'd said we've had three years remaining in after the decision was made, then it would at least have some (albeit flawed) logic. 26 years is completely and utterly irrelevant in the context. It makes perfect sense. :shrug: Gibbon said a comp...

Re: Brexit....or in.

I haven't. I just don't agree with it in the slightest and think you're completely wrong. You cannot argue that voters were voting for something other than the choice on the ballot paper in the context of the campaign, which stated over and over that we wouldn't leave without a deal. One day, perha...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Or a compromise could be to stay in until lunchtime and then go out? Yes? So you mean after 26 years in the EU we should now have 26 years out? I'm all in favour of that. We can have another referendum in 2045. ;) I'm really not clear how you think our length of time in the EU has anything to do wi...

Re: Brexit....or in.

I do like how you've proven your own flawed logic in a single post RTT :lol: Serious case of blinkers on the go here. Remember: the Leave campaign don't have to stick to any if the issues they campaigned on..... :dunce: The Leave campaign were not a political party. :dunce: Is this where you're rea...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Your argument is as compelling as RTT's that we should leave with no deal because 52% of people voted to leave and therefore must prefer that option to remaining, or leaving in a way that removes all the benefits of leaving (I.e. negotiating trade deals and in some people's flawed minds preventing ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Speculative wishlists from people with no power to grant them do not change the fact there was no withdrawl agreement in place with the EU at the time of the referendum, and no guarantee that we would ever get one. The government's own leaflet made that clear. So whether it was what people wanted o...

Government now want another 14 months.
To sort the Irish border issue? It seems a sensible way to move things forward, except I suspect the EU think 14 months down the line we still won't have come up with anything. But even so, at this stage what have they got to lose?

Re: Brexit....or in.

My point was actually that leaving without a deal was always one of the possible consequences of voting to leave, it was the default position. And then in the real world there are the main facets of the leave campaigns that promised a deal, mega trade deals, 350m a week for the NHS, all done very e...

Re: Brexit....or in.

If half your family wants to go out for the day, and the other half want to stay home, you could suggest standing in the doorway all day so everyone gets a bit of what they want. Or a compromise could be to stay in until lunchtime and then go out? Yes? So you mean after 26 years in the EU we should...
