That would have been an interesting set of answers to Kay Burley’s questions

Surely if there was another vote people should vote for what they want, if more voted remain it would mean that on reflection people think it would be better to stay in the EU.
Stop it the argument is over and you lost just accept it.

Not that there will be another vote, but I am convinced that if there would have been a vote, the leavers would have been very disappointed in the outcome.

It's great that democracy hasn't been undermined & we will be leaving the EU as was wanted by the majority of people who voted in the referendum. Democracy has survived in Britain.

For once totally agree Pete. We can not only survive but flourish outside the EU. Come on team UK.

Don’t be silly the first £350 million has been earmarked for a new super stadium for DFC as a reward for voting Conservative at the General Election.

Nice one OG I actually thought it was never really going to happen .
P.S. I will leave you to guess whether it's the new stadium or money for NHS that I am referring to !!!

I agree with you ED the EU will collapse inside 10 years, as nationalist governments will remove their countries from the EU, after populist votes by the public in their countries. The EU is as fated as the Euro. How on earth people expect so many diverse economies could be brought under one currency, is beyond me.
Why would you want a seat at the table when the roof fall in? I'd rather be outside watching the dust plume.

Emergency Budget the week after a Leave vote as the prime example.

If you are going to quote dodgy data, at least quote both sides.

Also, I've still never heard remainer saying what will happen when those nations around the fringes start dropping out? Note I didn't say "get thrown out", as the EU would be terrified of pulling their own finger out of the hole in the crumbling dam. :roll:
You have to understand the difference between the illegal collection and illegal use of personal data collected from hundreds of thousands of people versus someone (Osborne) claiming something that didn’t actually happen.

Coincidentally, today Leave have been fined a further £120,000 by the Information Commissioner’s Office for just such a data breach involving insurance customers targeted over Brexit and vice versa.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-politics-47087440

What makes you think that will happen? Any evidence? Why would any Remainer say that is going to happen if there’s no proof? Perhaps these countries all feel that in spite of the EU’s imperfections they prefer to be part of it?
Refusals to accept quotas of refugees, building their own fences in defiance of the EU
And you still believe all is sweetness & harmony?. Personally, when the roof falls in, I don't want to be round the table. I'd rather be at the end of the road & calling the emergency services. :roll:
Seems to me I said that some time ago. :roll:
