Another witty and erudite response; worthy of Wilde or Shaw at their best!

 

Substitute wacky for erudite (couldn't find a synonym for erudite beginning with W, so went for an anyonym!) and its music to the ears.

 

Changing the words of my post in order to make it slightly alliterative?

 

Have you nothing better to do?

What if an even bigger majority vote to leave second time around?

Will you be wanting best of five?

No.

 

As I have said many times, the electorate were taken for a ride last time by Leave's lies spin and refusal to discuss the real issues; and Remains' campaign was a appallingly badly run.

 

Then there is the many irregularities in Leave's campaign discovered by the Electoral Commission, some of which could still lead to criminal prosecutions. All of which would have led to the result being declared void and the referendum rerun had it been legally binding*.

 

If a better informed electorate combined with proper, legal campaigning results again in leave, then I will accept it.

 

*Cameron's promise before the vote that the result would be carried out and May's continuing support for that promise does not make the result legally binding. Only an Act of Parliament could have done that.

In fact, the government recognised the need to make these things explicit in 2011, when Parliament passed the legislation to allow for a referendum on electoral reform. Section 8 of the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act 2011 makes very clear that the government would have to enact a new voting system in the event of a “yes” vote.

 

There was no such provision in the EU Referendum Act, which in legal terms means that the result was not binding.

You are correct that people are far better informed regarding the + and - of remaining in the E.u. Thanks to the internet, we were far more informed in 2016 than in 1975 when we were conned into what we thought was a trading block.

 

 

 

 

It's no good Remainers blaming a "dishonest" Brexit campaign for fooling 17.4 million Brits into voting for what they consider to be a dog's dinner.

 

The Government spent fifty million pounds of our money urging us to remain. President Obama jetted over and begged us to remain. The EU advised us to remain. George Soros and other globalist "philanthropists" poured their millions into persuading us to remain.  

 

Just to shorten the odds still further, our entire negotiating team were remainers, as of course are the overwhelming majority of MPs.

 

Yet despite all that money and all the unfriendly persuasion of Project Fear, a majority of the British people stuck up two fingers and still voted LEAVE. That was the real a people's vote!

 

It wasn't a democratic referendum. Not by a mile. But the result was - and still is - a triumph for democracy. Now all those paid servants in Westminster have to do is make it stick!

3 years of intensive government MSM programming proves how easily people can be led to their own destruction.

But the people are now showing a desire to prevent that destruction and reverse the decision before it's too late.

 The forum's search engine doesn't; but that's not needed as the Electoral Commission published the results of their investigations on their own site, not here!

 

Vote Leave fined and referred to the police for breaking electoral law

Published: 17 Jul 2018

The Electoral Commission has today published the conclusions of its investigation into the campaign spending of Vote Leave and a number of other campaigners, and has found Vote Leave and Darren Grimes broke electoral law.

Yes, there were some financial irregularities and they got fined for that  , but what are the outstanding irregularities that are being investigated that could lead to a prosecution ?

Read the report; the full version of which is linked to from the press release.

 

Here it is again:-

Report of an investigation in respect of Vote Leave Limited - Mr Darren Grimes - BeLeave - Veterans for Britain Concerning campaign funding and spending for the 2016 referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU.


I'm not going to place a lengthy quote here and incur @evadgib's wrath whilst putting @Krataiboy to sleep!

7by7: Cameron's promise before the vote that the result would be carried out and May's continuing support for that promise does not make the result legally binding.

 

No, just morally binding - a concept which clearly means nothing to our venal politicians, the chattering classes and Establishment-friendly mass media who threw themselves behind the Remain campaign.

 

But morality certainly does matter to the millions of so-called "ordinary" Brits, as they demonstrated devastatingly with the "shock" referendum result - a shock only to the self-proclaimed elite, trapped in their myopic little bubbles of narcissm and self-interest, and one from which they are still reeling.

 

Well, tough, chaps. Some of us only learn the hard way.
