Before the referendum, all the polls showed "Remain" winning. I believe that remainers got complacent and many of them didn't vote. Different story next time.

Which is precisely why I now take ALL polls with a pinch of salt.

It was called "At the sign of the Swinging Cymbal" by Brass Incorporated.

 

I remember the music very well but not who played it.

 

It was the theme Music for Pick of the Pops.  My Sunday afternoon favourite and I used to steal my Mum's Dansette transistor radio and go to Poole Park to listen to it with my mates.

 

:offtopic: Totally.  :sorry: (not really)

That explains a lot re. your POV.....

 

The referendum has cost me a fair amount too as a result of exchange rates, but I try to think about what is best for britain (and even the eu!) - rather than what is best for me, personally.

That's very decent and honorable of you. That we both lost, unites us.

But I do not understand what's good about it. Almost all normal citizens have lost from the UK and EU. But not the hedge funds that have speculated against the pound.

I don't remember the 'theme tune' going on for so long, but that's probably my memory....

 

It does bring back memories though of a radio programme I never missed as a teenager!

There’s 17.4 million people who really don’t care about your boasting. If you have so many assets it serves you right for not protecting them against whatever market forces hit them.

This is the epitome of why we are in this divisive situation. Big money and too many personal interests in Parliament.
All aided by big business and big political ideology.

You are right.

So all 17,4 millions are on the winners Side. I did not know that the pound of a breexiter internationally has a higher purchasing power than the pfund of a remainer. I would like to send you my account number.

Who did not vote?

 

OK lets look at the math's

 

there are 650 and 202 + 432 = 634 so 16 MP's did not vote.

 

We know the speaker does not vote and 7 Sinn Fein MP's do not attend, so who were the other 8?
