  1. Brexit 2017

    Would you rather that over 17 million people were disenfranchised and you could have the playing field all to yourself. I don't think you'd have given those 17 million a second's thought. But all this hasn't happened to spite the remainers. I'm sorry you feel bad about something that hasn't happened yet. I'm sorry you feel upset that a process in our system didn't land right for you. Brexiters haven't screwed you or the system. So, if you don't want to help, try not to hinder. I'm tired of hearing the kind of BS your writing, from those that can't abide the result of the referendum. If you're not an 11 year old - grow up. Quick!

    You used it, you've got the internet. I thought it was very big of you to be 'quoting' someone you despise. To further compound the irony, Thatcher was a staunch believer in the sovereignty of parliament, a principle element of her argument. Thatcher was in opposition and was very keen on the trade benefits of the European club. As it was, it wasn't what it has become today. Given her strength of feeling for the sovereignty of parliament, I'm inclined to think she would not have been supportive of the Common Market's current form. I've no idea what Thatcher thought of Clement Attlee, but she liked the quote. It didn't stop the referendum, at that time.

    No. You are about discrediting the referendum, that's obvious. You have taken the quote out of its context. It doesn't make it an argument. You could try and compare it to Hitler and Mussolini.
  4. Brexit 2017

    No. You used it to serve your agenda.
  5. Brexit 2017

    Clement Attlee It wasn't her quote. She only repeated it to serve her agenda. As politicians do.
  6. Brexit 2017

    My answer to that is - yes. It would have been regretted, but being dragged along would have been normal. Maybe another time might have been a thought going through.
  7. Brexit 2017

    Rubbish. The EU and its champions could have won. I expected them to win. They fell short of what was required.
  8. Brexit 2017

    The Remainers didn't have the majority. Remainers aren't discussing Brexit, because to do that, they would have to accept that a vote happened and it didn't go their' way. While Remainers are doing anything and everything to reverse that vote, I will see good reason to stay and haunt this thread.
  9. Brexit 2017

    I can only agree it happens not to be exclusive to one side or the other.
  10. Brexit 2017

    Good - get over it.
  11. Brexit 2017

    You can observe here, there is no easy way to determine priority. The democratic vote is blunt. You can apply it and stand by it or choose another way. It happened.
  12. Brexit 2017

    I don't think it can be explained away with that notion - It is convenient and lazy thinking. You live in a democracy - stop complaining.
  13. Brexit 2017

    The fact is, you didn't have any facts. You're spouting dogma. You keep expressing strong opinions based on a prejudice rather than knowledge. You have indicated the limitations of your argument. I'm not going to big you up. Anyone reading your text will reasonably have to weigh up the degree to which they can indulge your 'expert' opinion. Most 'experts' think we were born yesterday, with no previous experience of the world or of expert opinion. With both sides crying wolf, the toss up was the referendum.
  14. Brexit 2017

    That's ok, I wasn't expecting everyone's experience to be the same. But, even from other contributor's anecdotes, some peoples' experience of the labour market leaves alot to be desired. It needs to be changed. Overnight will not do it. Staying in the EU will not do it. Capitalism for the sake of capitalism isn't working. It certainly isn't working.

    When was the last time you were on the shop floor? If you have spent any time, it doesn't show.
