Why would they bother when they are repeatedly told their opinion doesn't matter unless they vote the 'right way'.You ,Papa,Mick and plenty of others have repeatedly said that only those who voted to leave should have a say in the future .

That would be rather difficult as it didn't exist then.

Had it remained as just the EEC the mediteranian wouldn't be in the situation they are and we would most likely still be a part of it.

That's clutching at straws, as this article explains. http://anotherangryvoice.blogspot.co...efend-350.html

Re: Post-Brexit Thread

A lie, is a lie, is a lie.

No one is even trying to defend the £350m figure any longer. Such is the cynisism that lies are now acceptable to gain power/get what you want. It's depressing which ever side you're on. No wonder the young see it as pointless in voting.

Manifesto's at election time are also meaningless; we the electorate should insist they are contractually binding.

Political parties materials should be open to challenge from the Advertising Standards Agency in the same way that organisations like Greenpeace are. http://www.thedrum.com/news/2016/09/...racking-advert

However, the UK's political parties voted to exempt themselves from the ASA's remit.

Re: Post-Brexit Thread

I'm more concerned about how much we will have to pay to leave the EU.

Re: Post-Brexit Thread

Interesting positioning from the Labour party.

Jeremy Corbyn: UK can be better off out of the EU
Jeremy Corbyn will use his first speech of 2017 to claim that Britain can be better off outside the EU and insist that the Labour party has no principled objection to ending the free movement of European workers in the UK.
Setting out his party’s pitch on Brexit in the year that Theresa May will trigger article 50, the Labour leader will also reach for the language of leave campaigners by promising to deliver on a pledge to spend millions of pounds extra on the NHS every week.
He will say Labour’s priority in EU negotiations will remain full access to the European single market, but that his party wants “managed migration” and to repatriate powers from Brussels that would allow governments to intervene in struggling industries such as steel.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics...aged-migration

Britain lost its ranking of fifth largest economy to France as a result of the Brexit vote. Now its leadership of Nato looks threatened.

France bids to take Nato leadership role from Britain
Britain could lose its leading position within Nato after Brexit under options being discussed by member states.
The tradition that a British officer holds the No 2 military post in the alliance is under threat as other European countries eye the coveted role, the Royal United Services Institute think tank indicated. The move would represent a loss of prestige for Britain, which has filled the post of deputy supreme allied commander almost continually since Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery in 1951. The alliance has always been led by an American.

Surprised that Liam Fox wasn't present.

UK in 'front seat' for US trade deal, top Republican says
Britain will be in the "front seat" to negotiate a new trade deal with the incoming Trump administration, a top Republican in the US Senate has said.
A US-UK trade deal would be a priority, Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker said after meeting Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

Indeed and one suspects there will be much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth then .

They might have more of a chance if they'd actually joined in with a foreign conflict in the last 15 years or so.
