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, the full consequences of which were never set out, and indeed could never have been known without the benefit of a working Crystal Ball! For the then PM to expect and enable the electorate to take such a monumental gamble with the direct futures of 4 Nations merely in order to placate his own Right wing backbenchers and attempt to emasculate UKIP was the act of a coward, a traitor and a Fool whose fortune and future was already secured and innoculated against the far reaching, negative, damaging and potentially devastating consequences inherent in the Brexit vote. So he fell on his sword...Boo fecking hoo! So what?! Is he really any less wealthy now than he was picking up a PMs salary? What a complete and utter Jeremy Hunt!I understand the arguement of those Remain voters who now say; "lets get on with it, negotiate the best terms and make the best of it" because it seems we have no choice, and to do something 'positive' is better than just being bitter and wringing your hands; but, do you really think PMA and a 'can do attitude' will save the UK economies from the changed post EEU realities that will dominate and dictate how we Trade, and with whom, or protect Sterling from vultures like Saros?!

Quote from: Nick on April 16, 2017, 22:00:33 pmGreat article, shame this couldn't have been simplified an sold during the vote. I really think that despite TM's recent statement "Britain is coming together" i get a feeling that the true impact is beginning to dawn on the population as a whole, its hugely worrying.

Quote from: NeilP on April 18, 2017, 14:28:54 pmNot sure what Labour will do..... try to hold on to their safe seats? Lib Dems will probably increase their vote and seats in the SW.....Scotland will remain SNP dominated, NI another mess? Wonder what Putin thinks?

Quote from: Slim on April 18, 2017, 23:39:45 pmTake heart, remainers - one possible motive for the General Election discussed on Newsnight just now is that Theresa needs a bigger majority to get a softer Brexit past her own backbenchers.
