Re: Democracy under threat.

Jesus, this really kicked off whilst I've been at work. Shame the Brexit thread had to be derailed like this. EDJOHNS expressed an opinion, and backed it up with evidence. If you disagree with the opinion, then fine, disagree with it. But do so by disputing the opinion and the presented evidence. In...

Re: Democracy under threat.

Honestly man, at this stage I think we just need to leave without a withdrawal agreement (as mentioned previously, all that was discussed during the referendum was a trade agreement, not a withdrawal agreement, two different things) and crack on with the trade discussions; not just with the EU, but ...

Re: Democracy under threat.

A pretty sobering assessment of No Deal Brexit - the government’s 5-page summary (only) called Yellowhammer. They said it was Theresa May’s version, but it’s the same document with the heading changed from “base” assessment to “worst case” Some part has been redacted, but the original leaked report...

Re: Democracy under threat.

You can't assert what the majority of the population wants or wanted. We voted to leave. Any assertions like yours above are guesswork at best. And that is the PM's current focus: try and get a better deal, but if not, prepare for no deal as leaving the EU is what the majority voted for. He even tri...

I know what you're both trying to do as well: you're trying to cast doubt on the 2016 vote by any means necessary, so that, as if by magic, Leave didn't really win after all, or that the vote didn't really count.

By hook or by crook springs to mind here. Didn't win the vote? No problem, just claim it was invalid or something. A majority voted to leave the EU in 2016.

Re: Democracy under threat.

That isn’t what I or the figures said...at all. Of the population who voted leave (obviously they didn’t ask all 52% - as I say we don’t have the data you have to base it on polls) 33% of those people would be happy with an exit which was no deal. If you assume that the 48% remain voters didn’t wan...
