We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Quote from: döm on November 08, 2016, 15:50:36 pmClaptrap and hyperbole. Since when has the UK been under the yoke of the EU ?
Quote from: Slim on November 09, 2016, 01:34:25 amLick those hands, Dom. Suck the fingers if it makes you feel better, but make sure you stay on your knees.
Quote from: Slim on November 09, 2016, 13:53:03 pmI apologise, Dom. That sort of rhetoric is no substitute for an argument, I must admit.Here's what I was getting at, hopefully expressed in a more considered tone. £25 billion is as nothing next to the principle that our country should only be governed by its own citizens, in its own interest. Good people have fought and died for that.And it's by no means certain that we'll be worse off in the longer term, anyway.
Quote from: döm on November 09, 2016, 14:22:04 pmTo the average person in the street, I really don't think Brexit will make any material difference to their lives.
Quote from: DavidL on November 09, 2016, 18:39:25 pm?? Jeez! Have we been wasting our time here or what?
Quote from: döm on November 09, 2016, 20:20:55 pmSo it will enable some to be able to puff their chests out a little bit further. I hope it's worth it!
Quote from: Slim on November 10, 2016, 15:40:22 pmIt will (for example) allow us to reduce immigration from Eastern Europe dramatically, reducing strain on public services and safeguarding jobs for British workers. It will allow us to overturn laws that aren't useful or wanted. And we won't be forking out cash to prop up other countries' economies.
