Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

The only possible conundrum i can see is are we stupid or not.

You are of course correct it is scaremongering and yet the same Government is running this advert:-

and most of the folk they claim we could deal with aren't in the EU.

That is one of the problems. The politicians now have less work to do, seeing as many of the rules and regulations we live by are generated by the EU.
Leaving the EU would mean that they would have to pull their socks up and get down to unravelling the legislation that we have sleep walked into.

We do not have a natural leader in ANY of the political parties.
The other aspect to be considered is, those feeding us this bull shine are in the pay of the EU in one way or another, so they have a vested interest in us remaining.....They can never be relied on to give an unbiased view.

The government can spend 9 million on a leaflet, but the OUT campaign have their TOTAL budget capped at 7 million.
But the government see that as fair??
OUT,OUT,OUT!

Perhaps another reason for our M.P.'s to prefer us to stay in is, THEIR future relies on the EU?
Once they have been proven unfit for purpose as an M.P. and voted out by their constituents quite a lot of them then try to get voted in as M.E.P.'s thus extending their careers and the length of time they can keep their snouts in the trough by years.

The EU obviously think we are.
If they did not think we were stupid, they would be hiding the fact that all the great reforms that our PM has got out of them,are not worth a sheet of Bronco.

They are relying on us being too dumb or too cowardly to stand up for ourselves.

Pretty soon they are going to be calling us 'The No Balls Brits'

I'm tempted, but the privatised post office will be chortling all the way to the bank for services rendered by returning the "freepost". I don't fancy stumping up a second time.

But think of the irritation that will be caused by so many returned leaflets.........and it is giving some work to the Postal workers.
It will irritate me to get it...so I don't see why I should not pass on this irritation...and also let them recycle this bumf

I will certainly be sending mine back....I might even put a stamp on mine and send it back to Downing St.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

I just got an email saying that Parliament will debate the petition some of us signed .

It won't make much difference , but it's better than sitting on your hands and doing nothing .

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Yes, I have had that e-mail too and like you my thoughts were that it will just be something that makes little difference to the outcome....but maybe it might just make the politicians realise that we do care what they do with our taxes.
That money should not be wasted on such pointless leaflets(I have got mine today and it gives no real worthwhile information, so serves no purpose).
I would rather this money be spent on ensuring the sick and the disabled were cared for in a better manner.

I have just put mine in an envelope and it is going to be posted back to the PM today......not the freepost address, but 10 Downing Street.
I am happy to pay the cost of a stamp for it to cause the PM's Office some irritation.(I am sure they will not bother to read my comments on it...all clean, but pithy)

Aye, me too! 9th May is the set date according to the drivel, neither use nor ornament to man or beast! Between now & then how much more shi-ite are they going to manage to shovel out onto the long suffering public?

Absolutely pathetic & underhanded.

Got the same mail. The 9th is a perfect date, for him, he gets the elections on the 5th of May over with before he has to face any music.

Plus if his party actually do well in those elections he'll claim that he obviously has the nation's backing for all that he is doing.
