If the CIA in the mighty USofA couldn't get rid of Castro, what chance a Russian takeover of the world?

Quote from: DavidL on March 14, 2017, 00:10:49 amAbsolute pleasure to witness a defeated and crumpled Lord Mandleson interviewed on Newsnight. When you hear the arch champagne socialist bleating about a 'hard' Brexit inflicting huge damage on the economy, it's easy to conclude that the opposite is probably true. Euro membership anyone?.....thought not.

Quote from: NeilP on March 14, 2017, 10:07:04 amA decent read... the UK Govt is in a particularly strong position after all... yet so glum it seems?http://www.standard.co.uk/comment/comment/nick-clegg-this-goverment-is-condemned-to-break-its-brexit-promises-a3488336.html
Quote from: döm on March 14, 2017, 00:38:00 am"The People"Millions upon millions of "people" did not vote for this.Such people deserve representation too. Shame so few representatives turned their backs on those that didn't want this.
Quote from: Matt2112 on March 14, 2017, 11:11:18 amBut that way surely chaos lies. There was and is no Brexit-buttery option, nor should there have been and nor should there be in retrospect.On balance I voted Remain at the time. The prevailing vote was to leave. Therefore we leave and that is that. No-one has been disenfranchised or under-represented. I honestly don't see what my fellow Remain-voters' problem is.
Quote from: Slim on March 14, 2017, 10:01:19 amIndeed.Dom, I'm interested to know what sort of representation the losing side normally gets following an election or referendum, in your view? For example following the European Communities membership referendum in 1975, in which millions voted to leave but ultimately lost - what was done to represent them? Which of the EEC's conventions or institutions did we withdraw from, in order to make sure that the millions who rejected the EEC had their voice heard?Or perhaps you could point to a General Election after which the Tories or Labour slipped in a few of the opposition's manifesto policies, to represent the losers?Got any examples?
Quote from: The Letter R on March 14, 2017, 14:37:41 pmAgreed - just need to get on with the job in hand now and negotiate the best deal for the Country - although everyone will of course disagree with what this actually is.....
