Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

I think many suspect that those of us who voted Leave will be shafted by the slime-boxes that infest Westminster, Holyrood, Brussels, etc, etc.
But I'm quite heartened that Farage has popped up again to stiffen our sinews. There needed to be someone challenging what, after 18 months of incessant whinging from the BBC, was becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy that a "second" referendum was on.
Actually, if it were to happen, it would be a THIRD referendum.
The first was back in the 70s when we were lied to as to what we were voting to join. On the strength of over 40 years of evidence of how big a mistake we made, the entire British people, not just it's pampered politicians, invoked its democratic right to change its mind and vote to get out, whilst we still can, in a second referendum. So Tony Bliar and Lord Lardy Molloch Brown and all those Remoaning has-beens, you're too late - we've already had our second referendum.
And nothing I've heard over the last 18 months convinces me that staying in the EU is a good idea. The EUrocrats have revealed themselves to be what they are; a bunch of vindictive creeps.

Trouble is the young in general have no sodding idea what we thought we had joined and for me most of em dont care.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Nigel Farage had his chance but blew it by deciding that the job was done after the referendum. He spoke a lot of common sense and wiped the floor with the others who took part in the debates. I don't think Theresa May would have had such an easy time if it had been Nigel Farage on the other side of the despatch box rather than Jeremy Corbyn.

Who knows what would have happened if he had kept going but he chose to take himself to the wilderness so now only has the same voice as the rest of us.

As for another referendum, that would be a bad idea as the toffs would see it as a mandate to hold another vote every time the democratically governed peasant had the cheek to vote against their masters.

I don't think Theresa May has had an easy time, but much of the hardships have been home grown by people wanting to talk down the UK...this makes fine ammunition for those like Micheal Barnier, Junker, Guy Verhofstadt...if they can divide the country even more then it makes their job so much easier.

The London Mayor threw his twopennorth into the pot the other day by giving us the details of a financial study(commissioned by him) that says Brexit will cost jobs and money...well, it would say that wouldn't it...you get the report that you pay for...and so far many of the'experts' in these lofty financial organisations have been so wrong it is untrue.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Are they the same experts who wrongly predicted the outcomes of the Referendum, the UK election, The North Korea vs South Korea tiddlywinks friendly and the US Presidential election?

One would assume so, after all, what other experts are there?

I was taught that X marks the spot....and a spurt is a drip under pressure.
That about sums it up really.
