Mass UK protest demanding second EU referendum planned days before Brexit

Whether he can back it up is immaterial and won't stop a sizeable number of ordinary people (none of that 'Ficker than us' please!) thinking along the same lines.

Interestingly, it was you who once again took the lead by inserting ‘Ficker than us’, not a claim I’ve ever resorted to but one on which you appear to be fixated.

 

Taking recent developments into account I note while last week 43,000 remain voters went AWOL in one single constituency Remain supporters are planning a mass pro Remain rally in London.

The last one over a million attended.

You were far from alone, not least as a result of the deliberate act of failing to dispatch expat ballots to addresses outside the EU for the referendum and the GE that followed.

Despite the 52% v 48% result its still only 50-50 if we end up better off out than in having spent I suspect several billions trying to extricate to this sorry point and with a 50 billion bill on top it maybe time to revote in fact it is time to revote 🤔

Define "mass"! The "mass" last time opted on a 52%/48% basis to leave - in a democracy (as the UK claims to be) the 52% would be the MAJORITY and the 48% would be the MINORITY.

Am I getting anything wrong here? Certain other countries have coups or run re-/by-/repeat votes until the result is "satisfactory" - to this date I did not count the UK to such rouge states and would hope, that this will not change 😉

We are the 63% who did not vote to leave. The referendum was supposed to have been advisory and the law requires a majority of 55% of those who voted before the Government should action Brexit. In other words the referendum result was to Remain. Foreign influence, illegal campaign contributions by millionaires and lies such as  the GBP350Million/week payable to the EU and immigration swayed the vote. Many ex-pats in Europe and overseas were not given a chance to vote. Most jurisdictions require a majority of 60% (EU55%) for such an action as Brexit which has already done severe damage to the UK economy. As for having a second referendum, if the Government can have three votes on it and consider a fourth, why should the public not have a second referendum based on the real facts and not the lies spread by Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage? This time let's follow the law on referendums and enforce the 55% majority rule, then Remain will win by a clear majority. Clearly we have "Leave" to "Remain".

What a ridiculous argument!!! Do you really want to claim that all people not on the electoral roll should have a vote? does that include every random foetus? and shall we apply that to election results next time Labour crawl into power? By the way - maybe you would like to produce the SAME diagram with one of your little red circles round the "remain" vote - you would find it would be smaller!! The lengths that remainers will go to in order to try to overturn a democratic legal result are truly sad. But we all know where it comes from - just have a look at the fiddled Liebour vote in Peterborough last week!!

You seem to be labouring under the misunderstanding that British democracy is run by referenda and that public protest has no part in the process.

I firmly believe that the revolution that is currently underway will lead to a number of changes including votes for life regardless of geographic location tied to our NI nos.

Political deception got Leave over the line....with the NHS bus quotes, shady funding sources for Leave, Cambridge Analytica utilised, and social media manipulation that was not as deeply investigated as it was in USA...though in USA it never amounted to much.

 

I think Remain would win 60/40 this time due to the sheer incompetence of what has happened since.

 

The only way the UK can turn things around is deeper biz tax cuts to pull in new companies making UK as a base and keep City of London cemented in. EU cannot compete on that tax front due to the socialist macro/overall slant and tax needed to fund their super-projects (cash transfers to poorer blocks to upgrade their infrastructure)....though it could then devolve into tit-for-tat tariffs like Trump is doing.

But yes, "Singapore of EU" would be the only way to lift the boat short-term based on market sentiment shoring up stocks etc...before it sinks to the bottom, along with the pound at "1 pound to 1 Baht"

There was no deception, people are not that stupid. We just got tired of being ruled by an un elected bunch of liberal bureaucrats in Brussels. Having one government is bad enough, having another anti democratic one as well became intolerable. The EU was a good idea, it just has not worked so we wanted or country back.

There will NOT be another vote and we WILL be leaving, something the moaning remainers need to accept.

I know dozens if not scores of people with NI numbers who are not citizens and not entitled to vote.

 

Maybe go back to a land ownership requirement?!

Instead of this insane and inane fight against the people's decision, it would behove the retainers to get behind Brexit and make it work as well as it can, instead of continuing to undermine it. The undermining will make the outcome much worse than if they got behind the people's will.

 

And no you can't keep having referendums until you get the answer you personally want.

GBP will be 1:1 with USD soon and heading towards 1:1 with the Thai Baht by October.

 

 

 

 

So what? If the silly arrogant Remainers had got behind the idea of leaving the pound would not be in the state it is in. Instead they sowed disunity and this uncertainty has resulted in damage to the economy.

If there were another referendum and remain won by a narrow margin how enthusiastic would they be to make it best of three ?

I think you know the answer to that. There would be a lot of sophistry and heated rhetoric telling us that somehow the second referendum's narrow margin was decisive to Remain.
