Yes, have had that too...but then I did not expect our signatures to make a jot of difference.
After all you do not get Turkeys voting for Christmas.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Not holding my breath as, like many on here I have little or no hope that anything will come of it, but the response we've received is from the Government.
It's the Petitions Committee that decides whether to debate the matter in the Commons.
But I just wonder how many of the 11 backbench MPs on that Committee are anticipating retirement in the Lords.

All of them are....so you can guess where this petition will end up...file 13...the round one in the corner fashioned from metal net....also known as a basket.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Was reading an article yesterday that says the Irish Border argument, is pure BULL , Felixstowe handles £80 Billion of imports and exports every year, hardly any customs people in evidence, its done by technical bullshine, there is no hard border at all. containers etc are stored quayside and have usually hit the motorway in 4 hours, This was reported by a worker yon, Northern Ireland handles just £4 Billion every year and they couldn't see how thats a problem compared to Felixstowe which aint. he also said its likely to increase after we leave, and that will not be a problem either, its just REMAINERS trying to put the wind up people in his view.

Of course it is. Project Fear and Misinformation did not work the first time around, so the lily livered 'can't do' remainders want another shot at it.
Do not believe them...they lie.

Yes Cashy, it is just a ploy to try to make things far harder than they really need to be.
We can get a man to the moon(allegedly....because some doubt that too) but we cannot get ourselves cleanly out of The EU.....it is RUBBISH.
If you have the passion to get out then it is possible....there are solutions for many of these problems and some are simple.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Saw this on a website today and given the results that our Government has "achieved" as yet on us leaving the EU, I thought it was worth quoting-

Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary.
