brexit

Post by siam sam » Thu Nov 15, 2018 12:24 am

we have people who backed the wrong horse and now want their money back to have another shot. if it goes the same way to leave, how many more times will we have to vote again until they have the result that they want. the majority of the people voted to leave. the losers will just have to accept the outcome and take it on the chin.

That Sam has become the main problem: rampant ambition by others in both main Parties, to get a better job. I watched a programme on TV the other night about Chimpanzees where the dominant Chimp was old and potential rivals were always just waiting for their chance to seize power. So very like what is happening here. No one should have any doubt that we have a common ancestry :lol:

If Mrs May's rivals get their way. their problems will be horrendous as there are too many splits among the politicians and the Country as a whole. Lurking in the background you will still have the Irish Nationalists in Northern Ireland clamouring for Union with the South and a great many Scots still wanting independence. They will of course still want to retain all the advantages they have by being part of the UK and will still have their begging bowls extended in the direction of the EU. :roll:

My guess is first a general election then a referendum then a vote to remain.

first time we went into europe was in the nineteen forties and sorted out their mess at a great lose of life to the young lives to free them. have they forgotten this did they give us any help to rebuild their countries?

The U K is too soft with the rest of Europe.

It's just becoming a circus act so it is.

What happened to the English roar.

One thing's for certain, whip is going to have a pint later on followed by a lobster lunch :D

Whoever ousts Theresa May will be the most hated person in the Country Right or wrong I've a lot of admiration for what she's done. No one else has put up any sort of plan. Last election Corbyn was shitting himself he might actually win. He hasn't got a F**king clue .

I voted leave but if it comes to another vote I will abstain, I turned 70 this year and listening to younger people they seem to think I stole their future just before I exit, so I will not take part in another referendum.

May isn't to blame for this mess Cameron is he got lucky with the Scottish referendum and thought he could do it again, I would have thought with a question so big a 2/3rd majority should have been needed, imagine if the leave vote had won by a single vote, as it is the country is split down the middle and no one will be a winner in the end.

By all means listen to young people, but do bear in mind that by declining to take part in a very important decision, you would be removing from the debate and decision, decades of experience and knowledge to give advantage to many with little of either.

I shudder to look back on some of the views held by my contemporaries when I was young. :D

Don't agree,the boring drips from the continent who are interested in current affairs may think our government are a laughing stock but the regular Joe public probably admire us for sticking two fingers up at the EU and its bureaucrats .

I actually voted to remain..... BUT on reflection I see that the EU is anti democracy. and a dictatorship. I'd vote to leave if there was another referendum. To the young people who accuse us oldies of voting out I say. That in 1974 when I was young I voted to join but as the decades progressed.We got the chance to rectify our mistakes and us oldies voted to leave.. You should be grateful we were able to put things right.

This brexit thing seems to be dragging on way longer than it needs to.
Your politicians must be an indecisive lot. Either that or they just take referendum results as optional.

Sherri, when David Cameron decided to let us have a referendum on membership of The EU, he was hoping for a 60% vote in favour of remaining in and so he could deal a death-blow to the ambitions of UKIP who were taking votes from both main Parties. The result was unexpected, unplanned for and a shock. Sadly, the margin of victory was not large enough to decisively kill the argument off and so it rumbles on.

We had a vote In The Commons a couple of days ago intended to keep the final decision out of the hands of the Government and put the power into the hands of MPs. The division was won by one vote and it turned out that one of those who helped achieve that result was an MP, formerly Labour, who has only just come out of prison (for perjury) on licence and is wearing an electronic-tag as part of her early release conditions... It has become a pantomime. We now have the Leaders of Labour and Conservatives trying to reach a compromise, when they have spent months shouting venomous comments across the Chamber at each other. What a bloody mess.

I wouldn't have called a vote of 60% in favour to stay as all that decisive either but it would have still been a win and as such, to be honoured.

Whether the no result was expected or not, it was still a No result.

They need to hurry up, it's not a good look, just floundering around.
