Quote from: döm on April 14, 2017, 09:46:24 amThat Telegraph piece says the research was carried out "well before" the referendum. What happened to it ? Did it get lost behind the sofa or something. Very odd.I Thought the NY times article was presented beautifullyMeanwhile the Irish believe that the UK brexit team are beginning to realise that Brexit will prove to be "an act of great self harm"...http://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/british-government-realises-brexit-is-a-mistake-official-says-1.3048046
Quote from: Slim on April 14, 2017, 15:41:16 pmThough I'm sure there are elements of the UK government that would have preferred to remain, this is in essence yet more of the same Private Fraseresque doom-mongering. I think it will be instructive and entertaining to revisit these old pieces in a few years' time.Over my lifetime, my own judgement with respect to politics has tended to be vindicated handsomely time and again, while the judgement of those who have disagreed with me emphatically, especially on the Left, has been shown wanting.
Quote from: döm on April 14, 2017, 15:57:43 pmThat must be very comforting. I wish I could say the same about my beliefs. But that will never stop arguing with what I believe to be right and wrong.

Quote from: Bisto on April 16, 2017, 12:23:58 pmI'm speaking only for myself here, but I suspect it may well be a position held by many other Remain voters....I might have been able to come to terms with the Brexit vote if it had been a legitimate mandate given by the majority; but we all know that it was a referendum that was conceived and delivered in gross ignorance and bad conscience
