Just sayin' Also, this time around, the remoaners should have been as magnanimous as Wedgie Benn back in 1975
Quote from: döm on July 11, 2017, 11:56:41 amIf you couldn't be bothered to trawl through all the tweets, here they are summarised.It really is a brilliant piece highlighting how the UK shaped the way the EU is today and that many of the reasons given to leave the EU were actually put in place at the insistence of the UK government over the years...

Quote from: Nïckslïkk2112 on July 11, 2017, 12:25:40 pmIt's a load of horsehit! In fact Steve Analyst should change his name to Steve Horseshit.He's quoting loads of things from manifestos - and we all know how reliable they are - which are all bits of self aggrandizing puff!It's easy to say we played a part in this, that and the other. Very easy. But what did we really do? Was it just to sit there and agree with everybody else? Who actually put all these things forward?Britain has always been a round peg in a square European hole.And my advice to all of you people out there who involve yourselves in the Twittersphere - DON'T!!!!!If you use the opinions of people like this to bolster your own, then I pity you.FWIW I have a twitter account. I don't tweet, I don't follow anybody. That -and only that - is the best way for anybody to treat Twitter.
Quote from: Nïckslïkk2112 on July 11, 2017, 12:28:47 pmTypical small-minded little Britlander.We're the 5th or 6th - it varies - largest economy in the world.Scientfically, Technologically, Artistically we punch above our weight in the world. The great undoing of this country is that those running it don't understand this and won't help in nurturing it. I doubt this will change Brexit or no Brexit.

Quote from: döm on July 11, 2017, 13:08:51 pmSteve Analyst really does dispel the myth that the UK has been fighting the EU with the direction it has taken over the last 45 years. Most of the time the UK has either been a cheer leader or actively encouraging the EU to go in that direction.

Quote from: Nïckslïkk2112 on July 11, 2017, 15:19:05 pmNo he doesn't. All he does is parrot things which people in the UK government have said to make it look as if we're having influence within Europe. In all the bits he quotes - the ones I read anyway - nowhere is there anything substantive to put flesh these claims.What influence did the UK have when David Cameron tried to get a few concessions from the EU?
Quote from: döm on July 11, 2017, 15:21:18 pmunlike the UK economy?http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/uk-worst-performing-advanced-economy-world-post-brexit-slump-election-pound-sterling-a7766286.html
Quotestill be doing business of course but with unnecessary barriers caused by the exit. And the UK will have to manage its relationship with the rest of the World Economy without the power of the EU to do preferential trading deals.
Quote from: döm on July 09, 2016, 17:45:21 pmI think we may be at cross purposes here. I'm talking about the freedom of speech that democracy offers. Also the allowance to change opinions and beliefs.As far as I'm aware there are no hard and fast rules on how long the result of a referendum has to be adhered to.They are pretty rare occurrences in the UK, that's true but in Ireland and other European countries the results of referendums have been overturned in a matter of months.
