Where exactly was I “campaigning for [the UK] to remain”? 

 

Everyone saw your red bus and all the other lies. But nice try. And, yes, you “won” through manipulating the vote. Very impressive. 

There a new bus in town its a Blue Bus funded by #peoplevote also spouting lies as they have had been caught out

It would appear the #peoplevote battlebus that appears in the above link has been caught out telling huge porkies 

77% of young people not want Brexit?

CLAIM: 77% of young people in the UK don’t want Brexit.

CONCLUSION: Inaccurate. Polls for Great Britain show support from those aged 18-24 for remaining in the EU at between 57% and 71%; for Northern Ireland, between 48% and 57%.

Holding up polling of the opposite side question about what you want does not invalidate or prove inaccurate the poll of a question asking the opposite.  If you ask the same 1000 people if they want brexit, and then you ask that same 1000 people if they want to remain in the EU - you will never get that to add up to 1000 people (could be more could be less - but almost never equal).  Inside each side of the question - you have a variety of what people actually want -- and many will answer the question differently depending on which way it is asked because the question itself does not give that person a say on what they actually want (which could be something that is not brexit, and not status-quo).

I'm not a Brit, so no horse in the race, but if you go through my post history you will find that I posted when May became PM that she would do everyting to remain.

 

Just look at the news from the first weeks after she became PM, which her priorities and appointments were, and it will be clear that a brexit was not on the books for her.

It's OK. I believe you.

But you are just repeating the same mantra over and over again, 4th time today, why does it bother you so much, one can only assume you a very desperate for the UK not to leave your Shangri La.

 

You know that both sides were a little liberal with the truth, so why are you only showing one side of the coin, oh I know, you are extremely biased, to a fault.

Might need a general election for the latter to happen - Corbyn to become PM and then some 'brexit sanity' could return. DD, you need to come to terms that a no-deal scenario would never be sanctioned by parliament as it would be an economic catastrophe for the UK - according to every financial article published to date. 

 

That Brexit supporters choose to ignore the actuality is sad.  

Wherever you stand the whole Brexit businesses been a total clusterf##k, or a complete bourach (old Scots word). This post is correct, the idea that a hard brexit would be anything but a disaster has been ridiculed when the Economist made mince out of Prof Minford's absurd arguments (He of Economists for Brexit). If anyone wants to "Just leave" (Easy as that ho ho) it is of course your right, however at least accept that it will cost the UK big time, and if the Tories are in power the poor will pay with years and years more austerity. 

No one knows where Corbyn stands, including probably Corbyn himself. However what is abundantly clear is that this is a mega game of political poker, being played by politicians with our futures as the stakes. They fundamentaly don't give a damn for the economy (Accept in as far as it affects them) or the voters, they are motivated by ambition, greed, or an ideology with no hope of working in practice. The likes of JR-M are in bliss playing their hand to hold their own party to ransom.

 

The center turkey here has lost his brain. If I have to hear "Respect the result"  again I will loose the will to live. No, I don't respect the result, the leave campaign went on spending for the final two days of the campaign having breached the spending limits. Arron Banks can't explain where his £8m came from, but it's not Russia, oh no no not Russia, definitely not Russia, well any of you can believe him if you like. What part of THEY BROKE THE LAW do people find it hard to understand.

So he wanted to be the perpetrator of a scam rather than the victim of it? Sure you're not projecting?

Like I said: A manipulated vote must be declared void and rerun. Accepting a manipulated vote is completely undemocratic; true banana republic style.

Why do you think it bothers me? I am repeating it because the discussion around it is repeating.

Where did I show “only (...) one side of the coin”? My point is that the referendum was manipulated, and that proper democracies do not accept manipulated votes.

So what your saying is any 2nd referendum is null and void even before it takes place due to the above

When I lived in the uk I used to read the Guardian mostly, the Independent from time to time - admittedly because they mostly agreed with my views....☹️

You may find this palatable then from The Guardian, discussing print media influence on the referendum, and positing the old chestnut was it "the sun wot won it"?

 

From the article: "British newspapers were overwhelmingly in favour of Brexit, with the Mail, Telegraph, Express and Star accounting for four times as many readers and anti-EU stories as their pro-remain rivals."

Norway manages without one, albeit with difficulties, and I agree remaining in the current EU customs Union is by far the best route to resolve the  Irish issue.

Just to be clear, Norway has a "hard" border with Sweden because it is not in a customs union with the EU. This is the precise issue in Ireland.

Too time consuming and open to sculduggery ☺

It's the biggest decision in over 70 years! Who cares how long it takes or how much it costs to get right?

There are at least three incorrect things that campaigns can do to gain votes:-

1) Mislead the voters, exaggeration etc.

2) Lie to the voters (£350M excluded the rebate taken off BEFORE we sent money to the EU, thus it was a lie, plain and simple.)

3) Break the Law.

Politicians lie and mislead all the time, if we stopped votes because of this elections would never happen.

Breaking the law is grounds to declare a referendum or an election null and void. It happens with constituency elections from time to time.

There was no democratic vote. There was a manipulated referendum. 

Manipulated but yet you still managed to lose.
