I am not getting desperate...

 

I just pointing out misleading propaganda, why not quote 51.8% instead of 17.4million? not exactly an other whelming majority, why not just say to the 48.2% "go to hell, we won". because in reality that is what brexiteers are saying.

 

Not relevant until PR supersedes FPTP in elections.

But there was misleading propaganda from both sides, surely you must at least agree with me on that, but be under no illusion most people knew what they were voting for, whether leaver or remainer.

I would also have no problem using 51.8% as opposed to 17.4 million, both figures show a true reflection on the result, also I would have no problem in saying 1.3 million more of the electorate voted to leave, they all are figures that people can relate to. I suppose if you think that 1.3 million is not an overall majority, that is up to you.

One thing is clear we should think like many other countries, which require something more than a simple majority in any referendum, this should have been the same for the Scottish referendum, would make sense because then no one would be calling for a rerun, I think even you would see the sense there.

 

As for the lies, misinformation, distortion of the facts, scaremongering, etc, yes, I agree but who was telling the biggest porkies I think we will disagree, politics is a dirty business.  

 

"but be under no illusion most people knew what they were voting for, whether leaver or remainer." I strongly disagree on that, ask anyone who voted leave and you will probably get 20 or more reasons why, ask anyone who voted leave what the expected, and you will get 17.4millon answers...

You'd better start you poll now. Not much time left.

Nothing will happen on the 14th February, it is the 28th February that May is making her final pitch or at least her deadline until she changes it again.  She is running the clock down and threatening the MPs with a no deal Brexit or her deal knowing that the MPs will never allow Britain to leave with no deal.

Breixteer's either like to pretend or genuinely are ignorant of how Britain's representative parliamentary constitution works.

 

They cling to the result of an advisory referendum regardless of any thoughts of consequences or the detail required for government to follow and implement that advice.

 

They actually clamor for something that the parliamentary system was designed to stop. And when/if they get it they'll be the first to cry.

It's the former, indisputably

It didn't need to for the 17.4m who knew what they wanted from the onset.

Why don't you tell us then? We know what you don't want, what do you want?

 

I asked several days ago if any Brexiters could tell me what they, themselves, personally expected to Benefit from Brexit? No responses.

 

Not only do selfish Brexiters not give a damn about others, they have no idea what they want! How dumb is that? It's purely tribal.
